12 Week Mash Mafia No Fat Powerlifting Program

12 Week Mash Mafia No Fat Powerlifting Program

I am committed to forming the best powerlifting team in America. My weightlifting team is well on its way, so now it is time to turn my focus on powerlifting. The Mash Mafia Compound now resides in the very building where I finished my pro powerlifting career. There is something magical about that place as you all can see from the massive PRs that my team hits on the weekly.

Now it is time to fill it with world champion powerlifters as well. This article and new routine is to show that commitment. Team Mash Mafia is taking powerlifters in all the different levels right now. You can check the teams out below:

The Mash Compound is looking for powerlifters that want to be coached up by Coach Mash. I am talking about men and women that want to be the best in the world. If you are interested, email us at the address below:

The 12-week program below is a great plan to get you strong without a lot of unnecessary assistance work. This is the meat and potatoes baby! One exercise that I want to address up front is the DB Power Clean.

The DB Power Clean is not a complex movement. Basically the athlete shrugs the elbow level with the shoulders and then performs an external rotation. That’s it! I am just looking to match external rotation with all the internal rotation of bench pressing to prevent injuries.

If you have any questions about the other exercises, simply reply to this article in the comments sections. I will either explain the exercise, or make a video for you. I want all of you to benefit from this website. If you communicate questions, then I can be assured of your progress.

Enjoy the program!
