The new gym I joined had a lifting meet (not competition though). Just to see where you're at. We did three lifts: Squat, military press, and deadlift.
My results were...
Opened conservatively. Easy!
Could feel it on this one, but got it no problem.
I've never maxed out on it, and it's never been my forte, so I opened way light. This was a feather.
Could start to feel it, but still easy.
I pressed it perfectly fine, without any issues, but then I took a step backwards... grr! I didn't have in mind that we had to keep out feet planted. Miss.
No problem! A new PR for me. People were pretty impressed with this one, and it was the strongest deadlift out of anyone else.
Pretty happy overall... just wish I didn't take the step on that press. I lifted fairly conservatively; I wanted to make all my lifts. Next time I'll grind the second or last lift out. It was really fun; the best time I've had in years.
Might have pics or videos soon, not sure if people had taken any of me.

Nice work man. Interesting that they have military press instead of benching (not that that's a bad thing).
Yeah I guess it's a Crossfit Total... not necessarily powerlifting. I'd prefer the bench though!
nice work...keep it up
