Sumo Vs Conventional?

Which is best best for you? Here is a good video on that very question.

"Quick thoughts on choosing between
sumo and conventional deadlift.


On the road to Relentless Detroit, LeRoy The Machine stops at METROFLEX GYM LB to do some prep work. Since the meet at VENICE I knew I had some technical issues to work on.. Leg drive speed and hitting the groove faster upon command. So to work out some things I added the so cal USPA meet to the list.. All went well as planned .

Eric Lilliebridge 955lbs/433kgs x 3

Monster squat session by Eric Lilliebridge!:

"This was my 3rd heavy squat training session for my meet prep towards GPA Worlds. The goal for today was to hit a PR triple. My best ever before this was 925x3. So this was a 30lb PR for a triple. I'd say it was pretty close to my limit for a 3 rep max. I might've had another 5-10lbs for a triple, but that would be really pushing it. My next heavy squat session in 2 weeks I'll be going for a PR double. My best double so far is 960x2. So anything above that I'll be very happy with. At this point in my cycle, I have 2 heavy Deadlift training sessions left and 2 heavy Squat training sessions before I de load going into the meet."

Raw Ranking Rules Update

Just want to make a certain thing clear on the wrapped rankings. We understand there are double ply wraps out there and have been for some time. Gear manufactures can market anything they like and federations can make rules for or against anything they wish. We have NO say so in that. However for our rankings, double-ply wraps are are fine for the Geared rankings but they are not allowed on our Raw with wraps rankings. I just wanted to make that clear. Here is the PLWatch list of ranking rules to keep in mind. Rules That Must Be Followed For All Ranking Lists
