Tue, 11/09/2021 - 21:34 -- admin

L.E.G.E.N.D. @kaizhao.93kg competed at the Warcat Open yesterday @warcatstrength. He pulled his 330kg opener so fast he ended up getting some rebound at the top causing him to get red lighted for up and down. Came back and got the 330kg on his 2nd. Then jumped a mind blowing 37.5 kilos on his 3rd, and hit a clean 367.5kg (810#) deadlift, 2.5kg over Ashton’s current Open American Record . @usapowerlifting @kingofthelifts #usapowerlifting #usaplca

mlack15 832 squat opener and 881 second attempt felt a small pop in my knee on my first attempt didn’t think it was anything serious and then pretty much finished it off on my second attempt all signs point to a patella related injury hopefully nothing to serious.... still managed push through the meet despite the pain and bench 579 and pull 782 to total 2243 @general_anthonyg and I put together a plan and It was perfectly executed there was no doubt 925 was going to happen but that’s the way the cookie crumbles on to the next one

lindsayloves2lift Weighed in @ 146 & went 402/198/435 - 1035 total at the @livelargefitness fall brawl. I can honestly say I left it all on the platform today. 88lb total PR. Thank you @sylva_strong for being here to never tell me what’s on the bar. @thebattleaxegym i wouldn’t be standing here without the meticulous “little things” you’ve fixed when we were down to the wire. @perfectstormhardcoregym thanks for always being a little slice of heaven. Most of all my babies & my parents got to see me crack a grand & my heart is so full.

Jessica and Jenna hit a huge milestone lifts last weekend!

Story by jaffestrength- It’s been about a year and a half since I posted one of these. When the world was put on pause it didn’t feel right to show athletes competing when comps were being canceled left and right. But now that we are seeing some normalcy, it’s time to showcase great performances again. Both @jess_sliv13 and @jennarose711 hit a huge milestone lifts last weekend. Both topping the 500lbs deadlift barrier. Something like a 50plus pound platform PR for both ladies. Here’s both of their 501lbs deadlifts.

Jo Jordan- APF Nightmare on 49th Street recap

APF Nightmare on 49th Street recap. Squats went exactly how I wanted them to go and finished with 1025 and a PR. Things went down hill after that though. I got my opening bench of 606, but then missed 666 twice at lockout. Deadlifts went as expected too, unfortunately. I ended with 545 and a narrow miss at 575 due to a balance issue at the top. I was also able to pull out a best lifter win since they factor in age. a special thanks to @nnorwood5 and @daughtersandeadlifts for handling me at the meet. Couldn’t have done it without y’all.

Learn why some sit and anchor and others simply wedge into their conventional deadlifts

jaffestrength Headed to Missouri today but first, let me teach (offend) people. Learn why some sit and anchor and others simply wedge into their conventional deadlifts. It’s about length and sometimes girth. Shout out to @eddycoan and @maximusgreen who I used as visuals here. Feel free to share this and please save this to help yourself and others later. @culture_nutra @rileypresnell

The biggest raw IPF bench in China. 250 @ 120 +. Wang Cheng 22 yo

Wed, 10/27/2021 - 14:12 -- admin
dmitry.spiridonov- A year ago, China became a temporary member of the IPF. It is likely that they will become full members in 2022. In the meantime, there is time, the Chinese are gaining strength, experience and lifting decent weights in domestic competitions. A couple of days ago, junior 22 years old Wang Cheng @ wc791201103 took 250 kg without equipment. In the 120+ category. Highest bench press at IPF China so far.
