powerlifting blanca_villoch My 505lb. deadlift at 144lbs. bw that sealed my 1220 total for the overall win at the APF Cincinnati Women’s Pro/Am . . Somehow within the last year, deadlift became my strongest and most consistent lift. If you’ve followed my journey prior to that, you know how great this feels. Amazing what you can accomplish when you focus on technique & your body’s leverages. I’m excited to keep improving this lift in my offseason! Crazy to think that just two years ago, i pulled 405 for the first time. Hello 500!

powerlifting jrotsinger Orlando Europa is done. Almost did what I came to do. Wanted to beat the Open IPL WR and did just that with this 358 (162.5kg) squat. It was a crappy bench day, opener only with 198 (90kg). Mental note: backing off of back movements because of an injury will make my bench weak. Ended deadlifts with 435 (197.5) to take that Open IPL WR as well. Hopefully my 537 Wilks will be high enough to get on the world team.

powerlifting tommartinpl 410kg / 903lb Deadlift at 107.4kg bw. All time record in the UK unequipped. Had a trip down to Bristol to coach @trainwith_kj in her first comp and got roped into entering the deadlift only comp at the GPC qualifiers. Probably a bit harder to do this after squatting and benching first however helping Kiera first to a 552.5kg total as a 75kg junior (junior all time World record) was a pretty decent substitute! Thanks for having me!

RIP Lester Fields

powerlifting by Troy Ford. Hello everyone. I wanted to take this time to let everyone know that we lost a great person this month. Lester Fields, my long time friend and WNPF announcer for 25 years, has passed onto a better place. He was one of the most dedicated staff members within WNPF! This man had been ill for years which most people didn’t know, but he kept riding up and down I-95 with me to any and all WNPF meets! There will never be another Lester. Many of you called him Sarge and my son T.J. calls him his uncle Lester. He will surely be missed. R.I.P. my friend.
