James Fowler- Boss of Bosses V Meet Recap

Wed, 08/29/2018 - 21:34 -- admin
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.

Dr. Stefanie Cohen, DPT- Breaks the world record total by 44lbs!

hayden.bowe- That was GD amazing. @steficohen is not human. 190kg/419lb squat (all time world record in sleeves by 10kg/22lbs), 105kg/231lb bench (10kg/22lb meet PR), a 230kg/507lb deadlift, 525kg/1157lb total (all time world record record total by 44lbs) and THE HIGHEST WILKS OF ALL TIME IN SLEEVES of 628. Also wouldn’t be a real meet without a little pee on the platform (it happens all the time let’s stop pretending to be surprised by it).

Super D- Kiss My Psoas!

thompsonbowtie- Kiss My Psoas! Since you really cant get to your psoas by hand, you have to train it to keep it healthy. Here is one way that works well. Very aggressive band tension. 3 sets of 15 to 20 reps. You must get those hips neutral at top of movement. Think of it as being locked out in a cheating sumo deadlift stance! Look, the Psoas is responsible for lower lumbar integrity. Its not your abs, obliques &erectors. Those just stabilize under load. The Psoas & the QL are key to stave off lower lumber pain. So condition them. Study their function.

Jason Manenkoff Deadlift PR. 570

jasonmanenkoff165- Deadlift PR. 570. Haven’t touched anything even close to this is in almost 2.5 years. Meet PR is 567 gym PR until last week was 530. The switch to sumo is now solidified. powerlifting
