    USAPL NJ State PL Championships

    NJ State Powerlifting Championships 7/31/10

    I will update finish when results are posted. I had a great day. It was long and I was in pain by the time deadlifting came around. I had PR's in squat and dead, this time confirmed by high level judges : ). I competed RAW with a lot of other(read "big") guys @ 148. I weighed 140, I cut for the wilkes but I don't think it really helped me out. My friend accidentally competed in Collegiate instead of RAW, but no one has ever done that division so now he has all the state records with a 1001lb total. < That's what I am chasing for next year. Feel free to give advice of form(2 Things: I didn't know heels have to be down on bench and I have trained on my toes and felt really good-clean 230lb 1 week ago-so it felt weird for me. And I realize my sumo DL is sloppy but I don't feel pain YET and it seems to work comfortably so far. Tips besides push feet through floor lol are welcomed as always though) I tried to rep for AtLargeNutrition as best I could. Here are the vids(switch to HD):

    Good job on the meet.
    Here a couple things I saw with a quick look at the video. 1) You are walking your squats out about a half mile from the rack. A couple of much smaller steps would be sufficient to get out of the rack. As you get stronger and the weights get heavier you don't want to have to walk them out any further than necessary. 2) On your third BP it looks like you hit a lower spot on your chest/abs than with the others. This may have something to do with why it seemed to come off your chest slower than the first two attempts (other than the fact that the weight was heavier of course).

    So I ended up with 3rd place in the Junior 20-23 division, missed second by 5lbs!!!!! And I got 2nd in the RAW division. I don't care that there weren't a lot of competitors, I'm still ranked in the state ; )
