Spring Strength Showdown 2013 (a NF Virtual Powerlifting Meet!)


Recommended Posts

Ill get my numbers up tomorrow. Was not where i wanted to be but its okay.

I ended up hitting the following in lbs.

300 squats (was way easy. Could have went higher)

275 bench (got it off my chest but it wasn't budging after that at 295 :/ )

355 on dead lift. (Which was no increase in max. I need to work my dead lift form a good bit.)

That's a 55lb increase on squats though and a 10-20lb increase in bench because i think i probably could've hit 285. That's not bad progress for one months time since i last maxed. Wont be maxing again for several months.

Ill add my totals once i get my video uploaded.

Stop! Badger time.

 

Squat: I was feeling good coming into this, and sure enough after 165 and equalling last week's 175PB, new PB 180, four plates, happy dance.   :nevreness:  Greyhound is my new jam, it's awesome lifting techno.

 

Bench: Feh. Opened at 100, but 105 just wouldn't get off my chest.  Equal PB, but.... feh.

 

Deadlift: Playtime! 200 open, 210 solid PB, and then greed for five plates: I'd have got 215, for sure, but 220 didn't get high enough to grind out. 

 

So, total 490kg / 1078 lbs, and obviously I'll be focusing a LOT more on my bench over the next training cycle.  Wilks stabs me in the eye because I'm soooo heavy.

Okay. Here are my totals in KG. 

 

Squats- 136.2

Bench- 124.85

Deadlift- 161.17

 

Here is my video proof. I realize from watching some of your videos I need to make sure I do a nice pause and all that. Didn't realize that was something I needed to do. Noted for next time. 

 

 

Also notice I need to make some different adjustments on form. I'll be posting in the form section for any recommendations on that though.

 

I am definitely looking forward to the next competition we have. Hopefully with some bigger numbers and a smaller waist to boot. I think I had a pretty good showing since I've been back in the gym for a solid 5 months. 

 

Congratulations to everyone and good luck on more PR's in the future!

Need to add my video later (squat and DL only, needed my husband to spot for bench and only recorded the first attempt of OHP due to battery running out), but maxes were (in kg):

 

Squat: 67.5kg (Realised when I did that that I could have gone higher but really wasn't sure until then. Still added 12.5kg to my previous PR.)

Bench: 52.5kg (Matched previous PR.)

Deadlift: 80kg (Added 10kg to previous PR.)

Big 3 total: 200kg

 

OHP: 40kg (Never tested that before but pleased with the result.)

Well done everyone! The competition is officially over and unless I am mistaken, I do not believe we have any stragglers that are going to be competing late. Everyone did extremely well and we hope you learned a lot and got some more confidence under the bar.  Remember, power lifting as much a competition with yourself as it is with others.  Use your numbers that you achieved this time as bench marks and try to beat them out next time.  That said, the NF lifting champions are listing below. The next competition,  The 2013 Fall Brawl for it All, will be in September,

 

The Prizes:

  • The person with the highest Wilks Total is CoreyD. He shall be known as the "NF Power Lifting Champion" until the next virtual meet, in which he must defend and win his title again if he wishes to keep it. He also wins a t-shirt of tank top from the NF store.
  • The person with the highest Wilks Squat is Ancalagon The Black. He shall be known as the "NF Squat Champion" until the next virtual meet, in which he must defend and win his title again if he wishes to keep it.
  • The person with the highest Wilks Bench Press is Wildross. He shall be known as the "NF Bench Press Champion" until the next virtual meet, in which he must defend and win his title again if he wishes to keep it.
  • The person with the highest Wilks Deadlift is big141414. He shall be known as the "NF Deadlift Champion" until the next virtual meet, in which he must defend and win his title again if he wishes to keep it.

I'd like to point out that had 80's Medium used his working weights from his squat workout last week he would have won Squat Champion...

Something I would like to see :

Have a thread stickied/locked to use as a trophy board to display current reigning champions. Either that or have a page in the leaderboard spreadsheet for it. Also a male and female devision would be cool. Or does it make me sexist because I think that women have a harder time building strength? :P
