I went up to Swift Current this weekend to spot/load and help two of my training partners a bit. I ended up benching even though I wasn't planning on it. I had done a heavy bench workout on Friday and set a nice PR on Saturday!

I borrowed a loose fury (compared to my regular gear) and only had time for 1 warm up rep in it (to a 1 board) before it was time to get on the platform.

1st attempt: 145kg -- smoked it
2nd attempt: 157.5kg -- it was hard
3rd attempt: 171kg -- a big grinder but I got it!

I took the provincial 100kg bench only record from one of the guys who I train with (and he basically coaches me). Another guy I train with got his national qualifier this weekend and one of the girls I train with missed her master's total by 10kg.

All in all, it was a great weekend!

Damn Deeder, those are solid numbers. And you've still got 2 years left as a junior!

That's right! If things keep going my way I'll make some waves in my last year! Man I wish I had discovered powerlifting when I was 14!

Thanks Matt! Lets do a workout together sometime soon. I'll see what my workouts are like in the next couple weeks... It'll have to be a day that I don't need boards or bands or anything like that.

One of my training partner's little bro has been lifting for about as long as me.. He's 15 and just missed his class 1 total by 10kg this past weekend. He'll be setting world records in the 56kg class (he's a "little person") by the time he's done as a sub-junior.
