Energy Systems for Dummies (Powerlifters) And Why Varying Your Training Demands Will Make You Better

The three energy systems in the body are generally looked at in your introductory exercise science classes, and then never thought about again especially in the context of the formulation of your own training program. However, with a better understanding of them and considering how to introduce stimuli to your training to specifically stress them during certain phases, sessions, or even movements can make you or your athletes better than ever before.

Biography

​Joe Sullivan graduated from John Carroll University in 2015 with a Bachelor's degree in Exercise Science. At the 2022 USPA Raw Pro, taking place on Sept. 24, 2022, the powerlifter squatted 385 kilograms (848.8 pounds) at the North Kansas City, MO, meet for a new All-Time Squat World Record in the 100-kilogram division. The 29-year-old weighed 99.9 kilograms (219 pounds) and opened the meet with a squat of 365 kilograms (804.8 pounds). He then set his first of two new records with a lift of 381 kilograms (840 pounds). The new and current record breaks his own mark of 380 kilograms (837.7 pounds), which he set one year ago at the 2021 WRPF Bucked Up Showdown in Kansas City, MO, on Sept 25, 2021.
