No, no, you misunderstand. It means he squatted 905 lbs while weighing 181 lbs in body weight.

wowowowow, that 905 squat would be amazing for anyone ever, but at 181 that is just silly

but what is strange is I think I am even mroe impresse with that 1650 total, she has to be the only person to ever do that for a women

great job both of you

Thank you so much everyone! I just want to thank Chris and everyone at AtLarge for making such awesome products! Couldn't have done it without them!!

The meet was Saturday in Middletown, Ohio. At a bodyweight of 164.6 I went 725 in the squat, 415 in the bench, and 510 in the deadlift, 1650 total. 1st American woman to ever total 10x bodyweight. It was an awesome meet, fun, and catered to the lifter! I wasn't feeling the greatest at this meet and didn't hit the numbers I was expecting so, look for an even bigger total in November! ; )

Thank you so much to everyone for your support and encouragement! I truly appreciate it!

Thank you very much! In November, I hope to go mid 7's for squat, mid 4's for bench, and closer to mid 5's for deadlift.

And "MrsBobbyFields"???? Does this mean you guys got married? If so, CONGRATS!! You guys are so cute! : )

He keeps referring to me as his wife everywhere we go, that's what they call me now...LOL! We'll be tying the knot in October next year.

Training is much better now that the shoulder has healed up some. :strong:

That will be awesome to see you guys there. We're not lifting, but definitely hanging out. We'll have some fun on Metal Militia's stomping grounds!!!

I still have a hard time understanding why so many women are so weak. I certainly hope we're seeing a trend here. Congrats Laura, you are now an inspiration to everyone, irrespective of gender.

Women weak?? Compare to who? you? men? Men are stronger than women because men have testosterone and also because women have smaller bone structures, and yet, there are exeptions to this. Female powerlifters and bodybuilders can become very strong after many years of weight training. The measure of a woman's strength is not in how much she can lift, but in her heart...Let's not forget that! Laura is extremely strong, and she is not only an inspiration for women, but also for us men! How many of you can total 10 times your bodyweight???

I think you misunerstood him. I took his post as to say he was in awe of her accomplishments, and it made him wonder why more women aren't taking advantage of their capabilities. He wasn't calling women "weak."
