trackfu- 490.5lbs_222.5kg This pull for a single is symbolic of a new phase in my powerlifting career. I figured I should pull on the DL bar at least once before my meet next week..Funny thing, first few times I pulled on a DL bar I didn’t know it was DL bar, just knew it felt different.. Now, Im getting ready for my first @uspapower meet to qualify for DT Nats in June. So here’s to new adventures..
tucpowerlifting- So here is the 457lb squat that broke the WR. This is my pride and joy right now. Video #2 I just want to be well rounded in my sport. Bench is finally a beautiful thing now 226 at 123 bw. Video #3 Last attempt on deadlifts 457 not a huge PR for me but still a PR. Video #4 What you don't see after the World record attempts. I worked hard for this and now it's mine... you can't make things happen unless you work hard.
mr.3k10- Today was rough. My bodyweight is sitting at 300lbs and it was a real bitch to get anything close to depth today. To boot i blew my squat briefs on the 1150 and the rest of the way on the 3rd squat. Brand New White Leviathan canvas suit courtesy of @inzer_official has been ordered along with a new pair of Predator briefs. Good bye 275 gear. My strength is through the roof thanks to the old man. Just need bigger gear to make proper depth which will put me in a better position to execute the lift.
Last 3 sets in order: -1,050lbs(477kg) -1,150lbs(522kg) -1,245lbs(565kg)
bigredmanny- The GOAT does it again! @jenthompson132 with yet another #benchpress #WorldRecord at @theipf #ClassicBenchWorlds in #Finland - this time a MASSIVE 144 kg/317.4 lbs in the #63kg weight class!!!
From Greg- A week ago, I had not planned to send a video.
After a heart-to-heart conversation with a good friend and long-time powerlifting competitor, himself, he encouraged me to keep going, and keep adding weight.
bamaburrMeet recap from the @kernusopen: Finished the day with: 518/314/485 for a 1317 total in the 148 weight class. Video #2 bamaburr- Here’s the thing nobody understands, about why I went to the @kernusopen...I went to win and came up short. I pulled 485 for my opening attempt deadlift and for my second attempt to tentatively lock in 10k and second place- all I needed was I believe 535lbs. Either way, it would have been an aggressive jump but I didn’t come here for second place alone.
Finishing his walk (without a walker!) with Callie, another outstanding nurse! Thank you all again for your well wishes! C.T. & the entire family love and appreciate every last one of you Iron Addicts! WE’RE BLESSED!!! Check out the link to the footage below!
