BEAST: 2014 USPA National Powerlifting Championships highlights w/ lift by lift commentary given by me and my coach. Its a long video, but goes into detail about the approach, game plan, and what happened through out the competition. I will be making a much shorter video with just strictly lifts.
NBS Fitness (Cordova, TN) team member Christian Anto hit a 1605 total @181 raw w/wraps at SPF Nationals...
He is now ranked at #3 on total
and his 615 squat is currently ranked number 2 in the US in the Current Raw (wraps) rankings!
One day I calculated the safe time for alternating squat rounds (flights A and B), the time required to change the equipment on the platform for the bench press rounds, plus all that and the deadlift rounds. I summed the operational arrangements time and came to the “golden” number of 30 lifters per platform, per day.
By simple deduction, we would have 90 lifters per platform, per day, for a single lift event.
Amazingly, that was the same conclusion reached by the RUM organizers. Also, 400-500 lifter Worlds by kosher federations require 4-5 days, on two simultaneous platforms. That means that counting the single lift events and the full power events together, we have an average of 50 lifters per day, per platform.
Mike Bingham benched 622.8 lbs at a body weight of 177.2 lbs on July 19, 2014 at the USPA Multi-Ply Nationals in Springfield, MO.
This lift should put Mike at #1 on the current multi-ply bench rankings in the 181 lb wt class!
Josh Morris who is with Iron Mafia, went 2185 in his 1st meet (no wraps) at SHW!. An impressive debut to say the least. He squatted 745, then benched a huge 635 pounds to rank his bench at #3! He also pulled 805 to place at number 6th and his total was # One! That's right, first contest and he's Number one! (As long as its verified "no wraps" on the results) He is also now sponsored by Slingshot !
