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


Recommended Posts

Still not sure if I'm in bc I'm on a program now and I promise to do what coach says

I AM going the distance

 

'Cause all I wanna do is go the distance. Nobody's ever gone the distance with Creed, and if I can go that distance, you see, and that bell rings and I'm still standin', I'm gonna know for the first time in my life, see, that I weren't just another bum from the neighborhood.

what are the standards for cleans and snatches?Can I power clean or do I have to get down below parallel? (I know, my power clean shouldn't be higher than my squat clean, but I'm stilla newbie)

never mind googled...

Coach says come hang out with nerds? 

 

 

Good coach

 

I wish I wish I wish but the event of a lifetime.... the event I've trained for all year happens this Saturday:

 

the 2nd annual Clam-a-rama clam pitching tourney.  Spousal unit and I have entered as a team.  We've been eating right, lifting the things, running, pushing, pulling.....

 

And it's too far from CoreyD's for an appearance.  BOO!!!

Done. :)

Best attempts were Squat 185 / Bench 125 / Deadlift 215  (Press 100)

 

Big 3 Total: 525  (Awesome)

Big 4 Total: 625

 

I should have tried for higher on squats.  I tried 135 on bench and got trapped under the bar, had to dump my plates to escape.

I celebrated by doing a widowmaker set of squats @ 125 kgs. Then, I ate 1 kg of slow cooked pork ribs and a mason jar of whole milk with whey protein. Now I am back in the lab. Coding. Not a bad day today. :)

what happened? maxing out wasn't enough of a workout for you?

nice OHP by the way

 

Thanks ! After doing all the lifts, I still felt I had a lot of energy left. I hadn't sweated at all while attempting my lifts. Then I did the widowmaker set . Then I almost fell down and felt light headed. So, I sat on the platform for quite some time. When I tried to get up, it was nasty. So I went and did the other things. Tonight, I had 4 huge slices of pizza and 4 beers. I feel drained. :)
