Let me tell you something that not everyone will agree with…
The strongest powerlifters don’t always win.
Even though powerlifting is a game of lifting as much weight as possible…
I’ve seen countless times while coaching at the World Championships that the strongest powerlifters on paper aren’t the ones who stand on top of the podium at the end of the day.
This is because there are so many factors that go into a successful game day performance.
And missing lifts can happen for any number of reasons…
This is why you need to have a comprehensive game-day strategy.
Many powerlifters think they just need to get stronger to be successful on the platform.
This couldn’t be further from the truth.
Training will get you physically strong, but strength alone doesn’t let you realize your potential.
Having a complete game-day strategy involves not just knowing your physical strength…
But mastering the mental and tactical sides of the sport as well.
This is what the best powerlifters in the world have figured out.
And, it’s how you win powerlifting competitions.
Having coached over 100 National-level powerlifters and serving as Team Canada’s Head Powerlifting Coach, I’m painfully aware of the demand for proper game-day strategies.
Lifters put in all of the hard work training for a competition, and then fail to understand the variables within the competition that let them compete at the highest levels.
Athletes and coaches alike have an insatiable thirst for knowledge and can spend hours talking about how to optimize every little part of their technique or programming.
They don’t bring that same level of attention to detail around game-day strategy.
Unfortunately, the only way that you can currently learn about game-day strategy is by going head-to-head with another athlete, and then having to figure it out as you’re competing. This is like being sent to war and then having to figure out how to use a gun when you’re already in battle.
With this online course, you’ll learn everything you need to know to be successful on game day.
I’ll walk you through step-by-step how I’ve managed every aspect of the game day environment to create World Champions.
Maximizing game day success relies on:
– An attempt selection strategy that goes beyond just what you ‘want to lift’. Sure, you may want to lift a specific number, but identifying whether you should go for it or not should be based on certain meet variables.
– Putting together a plan that is based on clearly defined goals. Your attempt selection strategy will be VERY different depending on whether you want to make the podium versus simply setting some personal best numbers.
– Understanding each element of the competition. In order to put up successful numbers on the platform, you need to have a successful weigh-in and warm-up process.
– Having a holistic process. Quick hacks and general frameworks don’t work, not if you want to beat your competition.
– Having a contingency plan when things don’t go your way. If you plan your game day strategy around the ‘perfect scenario’, you are setting yourself up for failure. You need to have plans in place for when things go wrong.
– Mastering your mental energy. Powerlifting competitions are mentally taxing. You need to learn how to manage your mental energy so you’re in the right frame of mind to perform at your best when it matters the most.
– Knowing how to read a live scoresheet. If you’re battling other athletes within a few kilos, you need to select attempts based on the dynamics of the scoresheet, not how much weight you think you can lift.

I start by teaching you the game-day basics and then ramp-up your knowledge to be able to understand advanced strategies that will aid you in higher levels of competition.
I’ve spent the last year recording live game day scoresheets.
The scoresheet is a critical part of learning game-day strategy, and it’s something you don’t get while watching the competition replay.
When you watch a live score-sheet, you get to see the attempts as they’re happening, and how it impacts who lifts first, who moves in or out of position, and how to ‘run the math’ to beat your competitors.
This is why I’ve included case studies from:
1. 2019 IPF World Powerlifting Championships – 47KG Open Category: Teaching you how you can go from 5th to 3rd with the right deadlift attempt selection strategy.
2. 2019 IPF World Powerlifting Championships – 72KG Junior Category: Teaching you what NOT to do when going for a record, and how to come out on top when you’re battling 4 other lifters for the podium.
3. 2019 IPF World Powerlifting Championships – 63KG Junior Category: Teaching you why you can NEVER count anybody out, even when you think they have no chance.
4. 2019 CPU Nationals – 84KG M3 Category: Teaching you why increasing your opener has amazing benefits.
5. 2020 CPU Nationals – 105KG Equpped Category: Teaching you how to do ‘quick math’ to outsmart your competition and what to do when you miss an attempt to still stay in the game.

Most people know me as Team Canada’s powerlifting coach, but I spent years competing – 11 National Championships and 3 World Bench Press Championships – before moving into coaching.
Those were eventful years:
But for the past 10 years, I’ve been helping powerlifters like you hone their performance at the highest level.
Over 100 National-level powerlifters have worked with me, and I’ve served as the Head Coach for Team Canada Powerlifting at eight events since 2012.
Leanna holds a Masters degree in Sport-Exercise Psychology. She is currently working toward her PhD in psychophysiology, which is the study of how physiology connects with psychological processes.
Leanna is a strength and conditioning/mental performance coach and works with athletes competing in Olympic weightlifting, powerlifting, and bodybuilding. She places a high value on strategies rooted in scientific principles, but also acknowledges the importance of anecdotal and individual experience.
Outside of work and study, Leanna is a nationally-ranked USA Powerlifting competitor and has competed at the Arnold Sports Festival in the 63kg class.
Matt Gary will be instructing you on how to optimize your performance to go 9-for-9.
Matt is a 25-year veteran of competitive powerlifting. He is a USAPL Senior International Coach and has coached at the highest levels in powerlifting both as an assistant and head coach on the USAPL Men and Women’s Open National Teams since 2003.
Matt was also the head coach of the USA Men’s Team at the 2009 World Games in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. In 2012, Matt was named the USAPL Coach of the Year and is currently the Coaching Education Director.
If you know anything about me, you’re aware I don’t make silly, “you’ll be world-class in two weeks” kind of claims.
So let me say this: Game Day For Powerlfiting won’t instantly transform your abilities as a lifter.
However, what you will get with this course is the confidence in knowing how to squeeze out a few extra kilos from your performance and practical tools to beat your competition.
So I’m going to ask you to do one thing over the next 30 days:
If you try this and don’t believe it’s made an impact on you (or can’t make any difference in future competition), then return the course to me. I’ll give you every dollar back.
Everything here is what I’ve used to develop powerlifters at the highest level, but you need to feel comfortable that it will help you. So grab the course, learn the principles, and practice what I’m preaching. Then, let me know how it’s working for you (good or bad).
