Chris Bridgeford pulling 950lbs!

powerlifting jaffestrength I told @bridgeford242 that he’ll pull 1000lbs someday. This near miss at 950lbs tells us it’s going to be sooner rather than later. Become obsessed with your goals and the results make the effort worth it. Even at his level Chris is constantly striving for more. I guarantee you he will earn it.

powerlifting mjschenone And here it is! After passing out twice and cramping up horribly on the road to 165, stopping less than 8 pounds out and THEN trying to hydrate up to 220 and failing to do that (197.5), I actually got to lift! Squats were a BREEZE. Called them conservatively: 584-617-633. Left a few pounds in the tank Was hoping for 400 on bench. Ended up going 350-382 and scratching my last as it felt much much worse than it looked. Deadlifts got every last pound squeezed out and I’m glad. Always happy to finish strong. 584-617(I think!)-639 tl;dr —— 633/382/639/1654 @ 197.5

Tom Martin 405kg from 5 different angles

Wed, 12/05/2018 - 14:27 -- admin
powerlifting Tom Martin So here is a deadlift I am very proud of, given the circumstances in fact it was the best deadlift I have ever done. It was performed under a lot of pressure, to round off a perfect competition with the intent to claim the biggest total ever performed in Britain. My official total of 1000kg this competition was the peak of my last 15 years of effort, everything I have worked towards, had surgery for, built and ruined relationships over, the constant sacrifices to my physical and mental health were all for this moment.


Trevor Jaffe "Stability is the mother of strength"

powerlifting Trevor Jaffe "Stability is the mother of strength" Stability is the mother of strength - @marilia_coutinho I may have butchered that statement but it holds true. The body has a unique way of protecting itself from damage. If it feels a joint has lost stability, it can inhibit certain musculature it feels is at risk. I'm not a clinician and I'm not diagnosing anyone here. I just feel that these movements can help everyone who lifts improve their hip stability and function. Hips don't lie! So save it, share it or tell me you hate me.


Meana Albersworth finishes with a 1025lb total

powerlifting powerlifting Meana Albersworth 380-413-424(depth) Beyond happy to finish squats with a 16lb all time PR and a 35lb PR at this body weight. Goal no.1 going into this meet was to PR my total at a lighter body weight, and thanks to @obbkingpin_elitefts, we did just that with a 1025lb total.


Isabella von Weissenberg 192.5kg x6 @8 smooth like a baby butt

powerlifting Isabella von Weissenberg 192.5kg x6 @8 smooth like a baby butt.This was my first time using a deadlift bar. I liked it. I guess it would have been a PR with a stiff bar so that cool. (Belt under hoodie.) practicing for the @hybridperformancemethod deadlift showdown in Miami in a couple of weeks. ate a lot of yogurt just before pulling this so that felt a bit weird, other than that it was a good day to lift. Didn't feel like any particular hype was needed. Listened to Can't catch me by Avicii which is a pretty chill song. Bench was good and I hit a bodyweight dip-PR (25).
