Here are some pics from the APA Savoy Prairie State Classic powerlifting meet on September 16th. My wife had a 115 raw bench (meet PR), and 300 deadlift (all-time PR) at the meet, both state records for her class. I had a dissapointing meet, just missing 390 on bench and only making my 465 opener (missing 525 twice) on deadlift. Still, I think they are good pictures.

Nice pics man.

Just a question though, I'm a bit suprised about the 115 raw bench record for your wife, it sounds awfully low to me. Women must really not be good at benching - I'm stunned. Also equally stunned that she can deadlift 300 lbs, thats huge!

Great pics, ur legs look very solid and ur lucky having a wife who can not only appreciate ur lifts but also lifts herself!!. Call this a stupid question but can anyone please explain what it means when people put(RAW) by benchpress for example?.

Cheers

"RAW" implies that the bench press is done with no equipment, such as a bench shirt. A lot of people call it RAW (In all caps for some reason). I prefer to call it "Unequipped".

Your wheels are looking huge.
I also cant believe that lynnlynn can pull 300. Thats insane.

congrats to youShe wouldn't like me posting it, but she's about 135-140 lbs, so she lifts in the 148 class. :hide:

Also equally stunned that she can deadlift 300 lbs, thats huge!Also, there aren't that many women who powerlift, let alone that many who have performed raw in a meet in her weight and ago class in the state of Illinois. Besides, she came THIS CLOSE to benching 125 on her 3rd attempt.

Awesome, congrats to both of you!!

One question though ... how does the girl in the second picture feel about having her up-short pic displayed on the intraweb????

Sick set of wheels, Guido!

Also, one newbie question. Your raw bench is 280 but your bench with the accessories is 385, what do you use for accessories? Is it just a shirt or is it more things? The reason I ask is because I'd like to know what I can bench with the accessories on.

I have got to meet your wife!

All the women at my gym just sit around and talk about how their menapause is going...using the pink weights and complaining how fat they look. Atleast thats what I got when my mp3 player died in the middle of a workout..

But yea congrats to you and your wife.

[edit]actualy there is a guy looking at your ass tooHe's a "spotter", there to make sure nobody falls backwards if the bar slips out of their hands. I know him, actually, so no biggie.

The reason I ask is because I'd like to know what I can bench with the accessories on.Just a bench shirt and wrist wraps. The wraps are there only for support, and don't actually help your bench.

I'm also just noticed that 280 raw - 385 shirted difference. Sounds like a huge difference. I recently put up 295 raw, and I would be willing to bet money I couldn't do 50lbs more than that with a shirt.

Any recommends on where to buy a shirt to fit me? Can I buy something like this online? I'm 5'7 155lbs. I want whatever you have man!

I want whatever you have man!If you can do 295 raw, you can probably do 400 in a shirt, once you learn the groove and if it's the right shirt. I use a size 42 Titan F-6 single-ply ply. I've been using F-6's for well over a year and they are great shirts. You can definitely get them online. Try www.plgearonline.com for your powerlifting gear. They are knowledgable and quick!

That last pic in the bunch is my favorite. You look inspiring and a little like Henry Rollins with Giant tree trunks for legs. I love it. Very nice. Thanks for showing and we look forward to more!!
