View Full Version : State Champ!!

03-16-2008, 06:08 PM
Hey guys..

I came in first place again overall teenage at the USPF RI/MA championships!!

Squat - The judging on squat was the strictest ive ever seen in a meet, at least on video, you literally had to bury your squats to get a white light.

501 - called on depth
519 - literally ATF and grinded it out, good lift
529 - smoke show, went down faster, but called on depth.

not happy with squat, it was a learning experience to go down alot faster, however on the videos you can see im clearly low enough.

Bench - There was no press command this year so i had a partner give me the calls, he also coached me extremely well and i owe it all to him and my training partners.

413 - smoked
429 - called due to double pump and ass off the bench
429 - smoked
435 - smoked!!

very pleased

Deadlift - Went in wanting to prove myself after my poor squat results.

573 - smoked
600 - smoked
622 - slow lockout but got it!!

this made my day!!

Overall this meet was alot of fun and was awesome. The support from the guys at my gym was huge, and it was like having my own team to help me with everything, there was alot of other strong lifters including a high school team who were just REDICULOUSLY strong, one kid did 440 @ 148 and 16 years old!!!

i set all of the state records in the 242 teen class.

I will have videos once my girlfriend uploads them

How'd you get a fourth bench attempt?

03-16-2008, 06:17 PM
Great job, dude!! Those are some very impressive numbers at your age.

03-16-2008, 06:19 PM
thanks guys

chub - breaking my own record.

03-16-2008, 06:22 PM
Nice. Most federations, AFAIK, only give a fourth attempt for a WR. Great meet man.

Sick work Stump. That deadlift is sick!

The no press command thing is ridiculous. I don't understand that at all.

03-16-2008, 07:52 PM
You're a monster, Stump!

Damn impressive numbers. Congrats on the win and records!

03-17-2008, 08:12 AM
Nice. Most federations, AFAIK, only give a fourth attempt for a WR. Great meet man.Nah, most will give you a 4th for a State or American record, too.

03-17-2008, 08:15 AM
Nice job, Stumpy!

What lift did the kid do 440 @148 on? If bench that would be very impressive.

I wonder why your meet was so strictly judged? Are all USPF meets called that way? And why no press commands on bench? I've never heard of them not giving you press commands before.

Anyway, no matter. GREAT job. You are a still one of the strongest teen lifters I've ever "seen".

03-17-2008, 08:43 AM
Awesome job stumpster...
Will that be your last teen? or can you do Nationals still as a teen?

03-17-2008, 08:57 AM
Incredible work stumpy! I hope ALN decides to sponsor you ;)

03-17-2008, 09:03 AM

thanks so much everyone!

uspf is always that strict, the head judge is a world judge and the others are national.

i can do nationals this year as a teen and RIs as a teen again next year.

the 16 yr old did a 440 deadlift at 148 bodyweight.

03-17-2008, 03:49 PM
I do have to say congrats though I am late.

You are a beast stump. I see you being the worlds strongest man one day.

03-17-2008, 03:53 PM
the 16 yr old did a 440 deadlift at 148 bodyweight.

Ahhh, I thought you meant bench at first and almost ****. 440 dl is still damn impressive at that weight and age.

:hello: Hi fellow Rhode Islander!!! Just wanted to say you did a great job at the meet. I was there and saw you lift. I had to drop out of the meet because I slipped 3 discs. I couldn't belive how strict the judging was on squats. Did you compete last year too?

03-24-2008, 03:58 PM
damn congrats! FINE lifting and only at 18years old? Talk about putting on a show for sure! WOW!
