The interim WBC heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin spoke about his training to increase functional performance, which took place in Gelendzhik, and also named the weight with which he worked during the bench press.
“In the morning I had a run, a horizontal bar, parallel bars, push-ups, squats. In the afternoon, a boxing school: shells, paws. In the evening, work with weights: a barbell, kettlebells – explosive work.”
How much do I press from my chest? .. 120-130 kilograms. And before it reached 200 kilograms at a time. But then my shoulders started to hurt, and I gave it up. Now I have the highest weight in the bench, in my opinion, 140-145 kilograms. I don’t remember exactly, ”Povetkin said in an interview with Sport-Express.
Recall that on March 6, Povetkin will have a rematch with the British heavyweight champion Dillian White, whom the Russian defeated by knockout in August last year.
