Meet Results from today:

Deadlift

1st Attempt: 117.5 kg (259 lbs) British record for this weight class
2nd Attempt: 125 kg (276 lbs) British record for this weight class
3rd Attempt: 135 kg (298 lbs) PR and British record for this weight class!

She didn't even know she was making a record attempt until she went up to do her first deadlift and they ANNOUNCED it!

Kinda cool that her training weight over the last few months was actually a British record...

<blush> OMG, Built put up a thread about this!

I'm a fat little thing, 82.5 kgs and believe me I had to fight to make that weight.

Being over 40 sure doesn't hurt in terms of the record books. Makes that a LOT easier, lol.

Great Job!

I'm wondering if your federation is run like the IPF. You are permitted I believe to make a 4th attempt if it's a record attempt. I'm not sure if you can keep going on continuously if you are constantly breaking a record or not. It has to be I think a minimum of 5lbs over though, or something like that.

You also get up to 5 minutes rest for the next attempt.

Just asking since, if you had more in you, you may have been able to further push the record up.

Congrats either way! Great work!

Yes, they let Tholian make a 4th attempt, and I bet you she could have done it if she hadn't suddenly remembered that it was freaking HEAVY!

True. I failed 140 kg (308 lbs) because I wasn't prepared for how heavy it would feel coming off the floor, and as soon as I had The Forbidden Thought ("Jesus, this is HEAVY!"), that was the death knell for the lift. My technique went to hell, I got out of position and then there was no way that bar was coming up. I got it about halfway.
