View Full Version : Delayed, but here are videos from the 9/11 IPA PA State Meet

I competed in the 220 lb raw open am class. First powerlifting competition. Didn't get videos of my 1st squat attempt or 2nd deadlift attempts, but trust me I killed those too.

Squat opener was 445 lbs to get in the meet.

2nd Squat 490 lbs


3rd Squat 520 lbs


1st Bench 255 lbs


I missed 290 lbs my next two attempts. Neither were very good, but my third was better than the second. Really was lazy on the second one and paid for it. Noticed my butt came off on the third, but it was the set up I need. I am not going to post them, but they are on my page if you look hard enough.

1st DL 500 lbs


Best thing about this was I called for 480. Was going to do 480, 540, and 600. I like making big jumps in the deadlift and can do so. I don't understand going up just 10-20 lbs in this lift unless trying to set a record or new PR if the last one felt very easy. After I lifted Ame Rychlak told me 500 was on the bar for the attempt. Told her to move the second attempt up to 550, which I did.

3rd DL 600 lbs

I think I can build on everything too. Thanks for the comments guys. It is great to get positive feedback from others on here I respect.

Nice lifting man. How tall are you? Seems like we have pretty similar builds. How much less do you pause press vs touch and go?

09-28-2010, 05:25 PM
6'1". The pause vs. touch and go usually doesn't make much difference in regards to bench typically for me with singles.

Oh, I think the outfit makes you look taller. I was thinking 6'4".

Our bench form is almost exactly the same too...Not too big of an arch and feet grounded on the floor. That style has really improved my 1rm. I still feel like I can only lift 40 pounds less when I pause though. Maybe I just need to train it.
