Ashton Rouska squats 810lbs!

Sun, 12/05/2021 - 22:18 -- admin
some_strongash_guy SQ - 810 lbs (American Record) BP - 463 lbs Sumo - 832 lbs Total - 2105 lbs (American Record); BW - 227.7 lbs 8/9 successful attempts, with a close miss at 883 lbs on my last sumo lift. This would’ve given me a 2155 lbs total, which would be my best ever in training, too! Meet went well, we achieved everything we set out to do: (1) Total 2100+ officially; (2) Win. Squats went really well, and I am very confident there is much more there. We will keep chipping away at each meet. Bench press felt solid, and 463 lbs was a meet PR - which was done close grip!

dangreenpowerlifter 804 @ 220 Squat PR !! (365 kg) My best ever comp squat in sleeves bench was ok and Deads, unfortunately, had fallen off a bit lately in training and didn’t go great, but this was still a personal comp best after not competing for over 6 years #bossbarbellclub #animalpak #noskinnychampions

Kai Zhao pulls 367.5kg (810lbs) @93kg

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 finishes with a 1035lb total!

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

Sun, 10/31/2021 - 12:30 -- admin
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.
