Jimmie Pacifico Totals 2550 @ 220

I did what I set out to do...
Squat - 1,015lb
Bench - 765lb
Deadlift - 770lb
2,550lb Total @220lb
(#3 Highest Total in History of 220lb Class)
What a day! The Deadlifts went AWESOME...I Opened w/ a smooth 720lb then SMOKED a 770lb 2nd Attempt. Louie Simmons and Dave Hoff both said "Jimmie go 800lbs, your Deadlift is on!"
The unfortunate thing was that there were only 7guys in my Flight and LITERALLY only had 2.5-3min of rest between each of my Attempts so I could only Pull 800lbs to my knees...
I believe if I had 5-8min rest I could have gotten it! NEXT TIME!

BEAST: A look into my past

Voices in my head. A video remembering the path i took to get to where im at today. Still putting myself in underdog status i have to prove my worth to myself on a daily basis. Grinding in the gym. Just a look into my head of some landmarks in my powerlifting life..


As 2015 is well underway with some great RAW meets behind us, there's a bit of down time before the heavy and super heavy training takes place for USPA national and multiple federations World meets. So in the meantime I thought it would be good to post some chalk angels and light lifting that takes place in between events . This is footage taken this week at METROFLEX LB Slingshot and speed work are shown .. Be sure to follow POWERLIFTING WATCH on TWITTER upto the minute post from mobile devices .. Here's some footage take a look. Enjoy!
