Well as some may know yesterday I competed in my first powerlifting competition ever. It was held at Phillips Highschool in Philips Wisconsin.(Mabye some of you know about it or mabye you were even there, who knows) I have to say I had a freakin blast! I am already all pumped up for next year.

My schools powerlifting team took 3rd place out of 14 schools and 150+ lifters. Which is actually pretty remarkable because last year was our first year and only 3 people competed.:D I myself took 3rd in the 242 weight class with a total of 1020.:strong: I was hoping for a bit higher total but whatever, my deadlift just wasn't with it, a bit of trouble with moving the feet.

My lifts were as followed.
Squat: 320 345 370
-I can't be to dissapointed with squatting because I set a personal best and I had alot more in me as you will see in the video.
Bench: 210 225 235
-I have been kicking myself for this one because I went 235 as my highest but after doing that I realized I could have gone 15-20 pounds higher, all well)
Deadlift: 415 430 435
-I am defiantly dissapointed with myself on this one. I started strong with getting a incredibly easy 415 and then proceeding to 430 which I did not get due it resting on my leg for a split second. So at this point I was a bit flustered and dissapointed and my confidence was going down the drain. So I just decided to try 435. I put it up easy, I personally thought I had good form and was waiting for the 3 white lights...3 reds. I was crushed. I asked why I had gotten them and apparently my feet moved a bit. Which was pretty iffy. So my highest was 415 in deadlift, defiantly not what I wanted.

Now the pictures!!!

Thanks mate!

Just so everyone knows, I wouldn't mind some critism on some of my lifts. Anything major you guys see that I am doing wrong.

I'm not a deadlifter, but I think you have your grip out to far. If it was not so wide, you would have a shorter ROM. Also, get your but down at the beginning of the pull. Use your leg muscles, not all back. Good job though. Have fun. That's what it's all about.

Great job!! Also, don't be disappointed in yourself. It takes a lot of guts to get on the platform and compete. Just learn from your mistakes and move on. I have made many mistakes and always try to learn from it too.
