ct_whitney- pulling 660lb / 300kg x 2 @ RPE 9. One meal before deadlift day usually doesn’t work out well. Countered that with a heaping scoop of @runeverythinglabs EWP and it did the job! Best double I’ve hit in quite awhile. Feeling goood! powerlifting

marisainda- Fasted deadlifts 351lbs x 5—-I don’t recommend them, but I’m moving and I kinda threw everything away last night. Not a PR but def the most I’ve done this early in a training block. I’m also super excited I’m once again able to hinge and add in vert/box deads. Haven’t been able to do these since June so I promise I will never complain about them again. Thankful my body is finally starting to feel good again. powerlifting

quadslikerobb- When you don’t succeed, try, try and try again. 765 Miss, 765 Miss and 765 x1 dirty straps PR. Quitters have a rough road ahead of them, every time you quit, it’s that much easier to quit next time! powerlifting

Mike Tuchscherer- First deadlifts I've done since October..

miketuchscherer- First deadlifts I've done since October (495x5 shown). In October I pulled 455x5 pain free. Now I did 495x5 pain free. Seems like I'm getting better! This still feels quite easy, so I don't think I'm losing all that much strength. I mean… I'm obviously not going to pull 800 right now, but I bet I could pull 600x5. I'm not going to get in a hurry now. I'm going to stay patient, keep avoiding pain and taxing movements for some more months. I'll keep chipping away at this during my pivot blocks. powerlifting

A nonsensical view of the Wilks, Powerlifting Australia and IPF situation

by sensiblepowerlifting- Understandly there has been a huge flurry of reactions to the debacle between Powerlifting Australia and the IPF, or more specifically Robert Wilks and Gaston Parage. Let’s face it, it has nothing to do with the two organizations and everything to do with the two stakeholders butting heads. No one can deny this.

He started his day with a 738 squat followed by a 479 bench just missing 501. He finished with an awesome 749 pull to take first place in the open and police & Fire. He also took home best lifter and biggest dead lift of the meet! He still has more in him as he only weighed in at 218 a passed his 3rd attempt squat of 766 due to tweaking his hamstring with 738. 2,000 is looming!
