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


Recommended Posts

Yeah, streaming will only happen during the lifting, no streaming my house all over the interwebz.

 

 

Dang and I was hoping for an MTV Cribs style tour of Corey's house.

I was thinking more about a supply closet setup where people can go for secret confession and the likes. MTV Cribs tour sounds even more fun though.

 

 

I can imagine that turning into Jersey Shore pretty quick.

I do hope that the average nerd weightlifter possesses a bit more self restraint and intelligence than the average jersey shore person.

 

Also: Thats part of the fun :)

Perfect!

 

I'm a little sad about no streaming drinking...everyone knows Mir loves to make a fool of herself :tongue:

 

You totally should wear a GoPro aimed at yerself.

BAHAHAHAHA

 

...if I remember correctly my heaviest squat ever was done after drinking Russian whiskey for 6 hours, getting the worst sunburn I've had in 15 years, then deciding while riding my bike home I should hit the gym in my street clothes.  I even left my helmet on.

I will do this.

 

And that sounds like the best squat attempt ever in the history of the world.

The fact that you kept your helmet shows great self restraint and personal responsibility! Safety always comes first :)

My favorite deadlift vid is linked at the end of bigm's, the 380x4 where Konstantinovswhistles as the end. a very back heavy way to do it, but I'm no one to critique 840 lb for reps. Here, I'll link it below.

I-Jo and those who haven't seen it before, but here's a photo montage from our last lift off. 

 

Wanted to quote this here.

my BF is suddenly concerned i"m meeting random people off the internet when I told him about this event.

 

 

(I've been doing that ever since I met him- for like 3 years- hell it's how I actually met him <confused jo is confused>)

Link to post

nope.

 

I was literally trying to buy his pants.

 

he had them on sale- I needed leathers for the track.

 

He lied- jacket was too big- pants fit okay... 3 years later and I still can't fucking get rid of him!

ya, that montage is great. Almost gave me the chills and now I'm pretty bummed I'm doing this solo.

I-Jo...I can only imagine what the conversation would be like if I told my wife I was going to hang out with a bunch of people from the internet. "but it's okay, they all seem like nice people from their posts...", "no, I'm pretty sure that if any of them were psycopaths they would have put that in their sig..."

90% of my current friends are all inernet mets.

 

Actually my roommate- guy I met off the internet.  Best riding buddy?  girl off the internet.

 

It's surprisingly an easy way to make friends- but yeah- in retrospect sometimes it's not the best idea. LMAO
