Congrats to Ldydragon on her first powerlifting meet.

This is my first powerlifting meet. It was only my 4th time ever trying the deadliest and was a little unsure of my form and capabilities. I feel I may have been able to pull 250.

NOW FOR THE FUN PART!!!!!

The meet today went FANTASTIC! The judging was not as strict as a federation meet would have been but I still tried to maintain the standard. The hubby is working on posting a video I can upload to my Youtube for those that may be interested in checkin it out. This was a very small competition but was EXTREMELY fun and makes me want to compete on a professional level.

Bench
120, 125, 135 and a 140 attempt that failed

Deads
175, 185, 205, 225PR

*yes they did let us do a fourth attempt *

I should have started out higher on the deads but only having done them 5 times EVER in my life I wanted to just see where I stood. I could have pulled more after the fact. The adrenaline kicked in and I felt fantastic! I truly connected with the weights and see my self becoming really good. All I know is I am happy with myself. I have only been lifting heavy for about 6 months... I can only imagine what a few years will bring.

I want to thank BtB and J Byrd for the motivation... Hunter and Babs... a few more that I probably forgot but if you tossed me words of encouragement you know who you are so THANK YOU!! I wouldn't have gone if you guys hadn't been here for me. I hope to get more ladies in my area involved and will be sending them to the forums here.
