Hey guys!

Power lifting is officially over, tell next year : (
but now, its time to train hard and sweat hard.

I left for killen tx on thursday for state championship, got there about 4, weighed in around 5.
( 100.9lbs )

then, went to texas road house and ATE.
: D

It was GREAT.

So, then on friday, showed up at state!

Didnt do good on squat :(
1st - 215 ( starter )
2nd - 230 ( missed ) didnt get it bec i wasnt fast with the "speed of the bar"
3rd - 230 got it! i almost didnt get it bec i went down so fast that i lost the balance i had and i somehow still made it up and got 2 white light and one red.
( my max is 245 )

dead lift-
1st - 205
2nd - 235
3rd - 255 ( pr )

bench
1st - 105
2nd - 115
3rd - 125 ( missed ) bec of bar placement, couldnt get it back up. : (

I came in 2nd place for the 105 weight class.
total of 600lbs.
1st place winner had a total of 635lbs.
( 1st place winner was a jr in high school and has been doing this for 3years.)

For those of you who dont know, this is my 1st year.
My coach said i could get a full scholarship if im interested in doing this is collage, I love lifting and i wouldnt mind doing it in collage.
( just a little freaked about looking to manly... ) : /


Now, here are my goals for next year.
squat 300lbs - 400lbs
dead lift 300lbs - 400lbs
bench 150 - 200lbs

sound good?? i think so!!

I had a total blast and i cant wait tell next year!!!

Now, i need a little help on squat.
I need to learn how to use my wraps as a bounce!!
I've only gotten a bounce outa them once before!
HELP!

alright, thanks guys,
bye

congrats on your placing. What schools have scholarships for powerlifting? I've never heard of that.

hmmm...interesting. I've only heard of powerlifting clubs (which some board members belong to), but nothing that offers scholarships.

thanks!
I'll be sure to keep my training posted!

I think i should try to get my body fat down to 5% and then just gain enough muscle to still compete in my weight class.
( or maybe go up one weight class )

Lousiana Tech has a huge pl team - and provides scholarships. There are a few, but hard to find for the most part.

Nice job China!

Is 5% even attainable/desirable for a female powerlifter?
I mean, heck, 5% for a female bodybuilder is pretty damn low isn't it?

correct me if I'm wrong here.

thanks

5% would be very tough to maintain, and I doubt is very heathly for a female (especially someone your age still developing).

My thoughts exactly. I mean, why try to keep the BF so low when you're competing in a sport that's only concerned with strength and not leanness etc.

Your not going to look manly, so get that out of your head.

Not without some kind of surgery.

Anyways great job! You have a few years to go so if you even wanted to go up a weight class you have plenty of time to break records for that class and I am sure you could do it if you accomplished all this in just a year.

I'd recommend you go up TWO weight classes and forget that bodyfat thing

Good job.... Now find a real coach and start lifting IPF in the off season... but give yourself a good few months off.

Also, dont drop your body fat to 5%, your strength will be completely gone. From your pictures you look around 17-20 percent, and that is a healthy weight. Just try to gain a few pounds of muscle and take the strength gains that come with it.

he means compete in the USAPL

finding a coach depends on the area you live in but TX is pretty full of good PL gyms

It amazes me how you got second place with such little experience. Ive been working my ass off for 1.5 years and am no where near competition levels. Don't waste a good thing!

ha, yea, thats what my coach said. thanks : )
he wants me to try to stay in the same weight class, or go up if my body does it, and go up about 100lbs.
I really want to hit a total of 800 or up next year.
like, i want this BADLY.
My parents and family are just freaked about me looking to manly and getting "shorter" then i already am. Im not to freaked about 100lbs more.
im just freaked about lifting in college.

Hahahaha, there are so few women that compete in powerlifting that it is relatively easy to make it to the top. Especially if your someone like Chinaz with good proportions... I am consistantly told that my femur is too long :P

Anyways, I am a fan of the IPF (its USA affiliate is USAPL) as it is a worldwide federation and their parallel is ... well.. parallel. But everyone has a different view of it. You will find it different from what I saw of your other videos, but there are a lot of knowledgeable people who compete in it. You will do very well, you are quite short, which is good lol. I have a good... uhm... 10 inches on you. But also 60 lbs, so lets pretend it evens out :P

You are doing very well, do a little bit of research on the internet and find one yourself, unfortunately most of us dont know enough details about you to know what will work or not. Google is a fantastic thing.

Now, here are my goals for next year.
squat 300lbs - 400lbs
dead lift 300lbs - 400lbs
bench 150 - 200lbs


if you get that, you'd be stronger than ~90% of the people that squat at my university gym...i hope you get it
