Overall I'm fairly happy with myself. I royally screwed up on the bench press. I competed in the Junior 82.5kg weight class.

Squat - 147.5kg - 325.2lbs

Bench - 95kg - 209lbs --> This was on my first attempt. On my second lift I didn't pause long enough (105kg) and on the third my butt came off the bench (110kg). All three lifts went up pretty easy though. I guess I'll have to work on the technique more.

Dead - 187.5kg - 413.4lbs

Total -- 430kg - 946lbs

I matched my PB in the gym for squat and beat my PB in the gym for dead by 8.4lbs :D

I was 40kg short of qualifying for nationals. The head referee came up to me after the competition and told me he wants to see me at nationals. I guess I'll have to make up that difference somewhere and get to another comp before nationals!

Congrats Deeder! I remember we we're sitting on about the same level for a little while, and your lifts have taken off! Great stuff.

Excellent! Did you learn any secrets to bring back to us?

Risk10k -- Hehe! Good to hear! You'll have to do some catching up!

clawhammer_33 -- Not really? :p



Also, I didn't mention before, but the only piece of equipment I wore was my belt. Hopefully once I get (and learn to use) a bench shirt, squat suit, DL suit, knee wraps and wrist wraps I'll be on the same level as all the other geared up guys! That'll probably be a while though! That ****'s too expensive for me... Damn school costing so damn much :p

Congrats deeder, very fine lifting! You got your first competition under your belt, it only gets easier from here. The one thing you'll find out, is that powerlifting competitions are addictive. You do one, and you wanna keep coming back for more. Great stuff man!

Well.. I'd have to go to Quebec or BC for another IPF sanctionned one to qualify for nationals... So I doubt that'll be happening because they are both in november and I don't think I could add that much weight to my total by then...

There's one here in Regina December 31st at a gym that just opened... I'll probably compete there. Too bad I can't qualify there though.. I'm sure I could have :p

No way :s That's ****ty. How far would you have to travel? :p

Melbournes a 2 hour flight... damn Adelaide. (But we got good woman :D)

A well, Melbourne has scary woman (buff lesbain chick nearly beat me up!!!)

I guess it might be worth the flight to try and compete in a junior comp.

Looking at your numbers my lifts are about on par with yours and I'm the same weight.

I may have to look to see if there are any competetions here locally. It would be fun.

Good show, deeder. Those are nice lifts for being raw! How was the meet run? Was it overall a good experience?

I second what TommyBoy said in that PL comps are addictive and you'll want to keep doing more! At least that was the case with me.

Crazy! I work out at the U of R gym.

I can't remember the name of the gym but the meet in December is at a new gym on South Railway Dr. that is owned by a couple of powerlifters.

Thanks Guido! It was a great experience! The guy running the meet is the one that got me into it. He was crazy busy the whole day but everytime I was up to lift he was right there cheering for me!

My mom came and spent the whole day there. She's never even been to the gym and she was absolutely amazed by it all. She said she was almost scared when I went up to squat the first time because of how intense I looked. :strong:
