So I went to this website (http://www.usapowerlifting.com/records/american/index.shtml) to see the USAPL records. I way 150 lbs w/ clothes and shoes on so I would say I'm in the 148 lb class. I'm 16 years old so I am in the youth/teen/junior class... right? Well if those records are right, I am 5 lbs short of the bench press record! I got 265 on Friday.

Any help, I wanna know the record for the 165lb, 16yo class.

None of this matters until you step on stage.

Actually, I will be on stage on the 28th, I'll do it then.

The record is 253.5 lbs, or 115 kilograms. I'll get 255 atleast.

For you rbar, I'll pull 315, since the record is 311, and then flip the camera off.

For you Chub, I'll pull 350, then maybe 350.5 if I really feel like proving you wrong.

Sorry.
I just hate cocky people / people who doubt me.

not to be mean dude, but you don't look like someone who can pull those weights. but i can't weight (i love puns) to see you prove everyone wrong, won't lie i'll be impressed. I'm starting powerlifting next year at the college that i'm starting at..pretty excited to go to my first meet. Anyway..yeah.

What's with the pissing contest? I never once responded to you. You're in no position to be cocky, at all.

Still trying to get my forms perfect before i go to a meet. I just started deadlifting a few months ago, and seeing as how i used to squat on a smith before i came here..free weights are showing me my balanced is ****ed up lol. I likely will do a couple this summer however

I love saying this :evillaugh

Don't use machines, you girl.

Smith = doesn't let stabilizer muscles develop as well as freeweights, stay away from the machines.

Oh about deadlift.
Go flatbar, no trap bar.

Oh. Well, I'm pretty sure the record WW is talking about is 311 kilograms, not pounds. There's no way it's that low.

I wouldnt think about using anything but a flatbar...

And like i said..i used to use a smith machine before i came to this site where i actually learned ****. Thats why i mentioned my ****ty balance.


Btw..is it common to find meets with a deadlift only sort of thing? im not a big fan of benching, and until my squats ready i wouldnt want to have it included in my total lol

Yeah, don't get me wrong. 350 lbs is impressive, for a 16 year old at that weight.

no, pounds.

350 lbs = 158.8 Kg

Try kilograms. Those world records are all in kilos.

I don't know, it says 311 and since were in USA, I just took it as lbs.
There is no way a 165lb 16 yo could deadlift 685 lbs.
If it is in kg, he was a beast, or on gear.

on that site they have the weights listed in both kg and lbs whats the confusion.

also the USAPL is very strict in their form on what passes, so even though you can do 265 in the gym it might not fly in the comp, for usapl, you have to come down, pause for about 1.5 seconds then press when the command is given by the ref, then come up even without stopping.

doing 265 at the 148lb body weight and 16 years old is very impressive none the less, im sure if you train hard and stay injury free and dedicated you will set alot of records in life.

In revision, it looks like the record is indeed in pounds. Confusing. Most official records are kept in kilograms.

WestsideWarrior

Okay. I got to the bottom of it.

I called Smitty, and she said the records were in pounds.

So.

I have the record, just not recorded yet. ;-)

Was your bench with a pause at your chest? Either way, good job and keep up the good work.

Do you guys figure that those world records are with suits/shirts?

WestsideWarrior
04-22-2007, 08:05 PM
So you're saying I could do more with a suit?

jed
04-22-2007, 08:06 PM
I thought suits / shirts added a lot more weight to ur press / squat / pull. I'm wondering if those records are with no suits or with suits... I guess I could be mistaken but I'm sure they add weight...

WestsideWarrior
04-22-2007, 08:08 PM
I'm not sure. Someone else chime in, why do people wear dl suits?

jed
04-22-2007, 08:10 PM
I know people wear them to get more weight out of their lifts. Their are PL'ing federations that allow them, and others that allow only wraps and stuff i think. I'm pretty sure those records are with suits/shirts because some would be unreal without them. So yes, if you wore a shirt or w/e for ur bench then it would add weight to it.
