Sarah_TheBody- A week with chains.

powerlifting strongsarah7I'M SO FREAKING EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE that I made it though a deadlift workout with chains! Last week coach and I both agreed that I'm a total badass and I'm wayyyyy stronger than a 480 projected max. (Just kidding he never gives me compliments.. He tries to keep me grounded and level headed ) ANYWHO We work off of percentages of our "projected max" Mine increased from 480 to 505 Which means, every time my program calls for 80% I will be pulling 405 (NBD) so basically I'm gonna pull 500 next year

powerlifting miss_amanda_ann- 535lbs / 243kg x1, “Oh hell yeah” Video #2 520lbs / 236kg PR!!! AFTER hitting a 510lbs PR beforehand, yo. Don’t let your body fool you on how it’s feeling. Had a super long day on my feet first day on the new job. It’s about how bad you want it P.S. this is like a 20lb PR for me if we’re not counting the 505lbs I did awhile back that was high. That’s right, I’m not afraid to admit it aha there’s still so much time left for this prep .

Up and Comer: Federico Ruiz Jr

Wed, 08/29/2018 - 22:27 -- admin
Federico Ruiz, a 17-year-old with a very bright future in this sport, put on a show at The IPL Tribute Meet. Coming straight out of High School where he dominated the competition in the 220’s, Ruiz was invited not only due to his outstanding numbers but his young age. At 17 years old Ruiz Squatted 683 in wraps setting a USPA National Record in the 242 16-17 junior class. Ruiz also set a National record deadlifting 655. His total at 1674, set the national junior record at 242 as well, not only can he put up numbers, but his story into Powerlifting is equally as interesting.

James Fowler- Boss of Bosses V Meet Recap

gainz4dayz_- So finally getting around to meet recap post, I'll answer the first question that has been asked the most for my squats "Why no belt?". Well I trained all through my prep with no belt on, so it felt the most comfortable. I also knew that if I put it on I had an ace in the hole kind of strategy which means I was going to get whatever squat I put it on with. Go figure I came back and put up a pretty good 3rd squat, which was right on the number for the game plan that @too_hotti and me had talked about before hand.

oakstrong- The 3 lifts that got me the win today. 804 lbs squat and deadlift (the lightest man to do so in Comp raw with no knee wraps) and a 534 pound bench press (Comp PR) for a 2,144 total (972.5 kg) also a PR and number 2 all time in the 242 pound weight class. Shoutout to @chunkeecheese & @kigerstrength for keeping me together after a bad start on squats. And thanks to @pioneerpowerlifting for putting on a great meet.

Tom Martin meet recap

tommartinpl- Quick recap of the comp yesterday and my successful lifts. Weighed in at 99.3kg, the lightest I've been in some time. Pretty stressful cut to be doing during a 20 hour door to door journey to California, landing less than 2 days before I lifted... Squat - 382.5kg, 22.5kg up on my best in this weight class and 12.5kg up on my best ever at 110. So glad to put this on the platform after falling 380 my last 4 attempts in comp! Tiny bit conservative with attempt selection, but pleased with this.

Jenn Rotsinger- totals over 1000 at 114!

jaffestrength9/9 and 440lbs deadlift for 1018lbs total at 112lbs! First woman in history to hit 1k in wraps and now first woman in history to hit it in sleeves too. powerlifting
