A few guys I workout with decided to have our own little practice meet. Here are videos of some of my lifts. I haven't been sleeping the best lately which has effected me, but it was a really good learning experience ( I haven't competed in a full meet before ).
Nice stuff man. Jesus you're tall as hell!

you looked pretty strong at that bench. i get the feeling you can do more reps with that weight.

I think its hailarious that some of the guys spotting you on the squat had the bar above their sight line. I would be one of those guys, but seeing a 6-8 powerlifter is sure a counterpoint to a 5-4 one.
Nice work dude! You make those lifts look easy as hell.

How tall are you? It looks like your up on a stage in the power rack, the bar is above the spotters head! lol
Squat looked a bit high to me, but hell you are 6'8". That is still a long way to go down. I'm no competitive powerlifter, but I think widening the stance on both squats(if you want to continue in the suit) and deadlifts will benefit you greatly. Squat is tough to tell from a front view, but it seems like you might need to sit back more too. Again, tough with the angle. Can you widen your grip on the bench at all? That might help you too. Good lifting.
Great job! I like the shirt on the bench :o).

I've watched that clip probably 20 times, and I think you're right, I should have gone deeper so there's no doubt. I CAN ( and do ) go deeper, but I think since I haven't used the suit very much, wearing the suit makes it harder for me to tell where parallel is. I need somebody yelling at me to know when I got depth.Squat looked a bit high to me, but hell you are 6'8".

I *really* love squatting, and still can't believe Im squatting what I am, and I think with some more work on form/technique I'll be able to squat a ton more. Before I started squatting last summer, my right knee bothered me all the time ( from a previous injury, not from squatting ), but now I never feel anything but strong in that knee.
Wow. Nice smooth lockout on your bench. But with that wingspan you have, I would think you need as wide a grip as possible on bench. I think you should start lifting with your grip out. Before long you'll be lifting more that way than close. I also noticed you don't have much of an arch. A bigger arch would help. Good job though. I won't comment on the dead or squat. They're just support lifts to me. LOL
Can't wait 'til tomorrow, 'cause I get stronger every day!
Strong lifts. You look like you can do a lot more with more training, especially the deadlift.
