Default IPA Virginia State Powerlifting Championships

I was looking around on Powerliftingwatch.com and found this:


Meet: Virginia States
Federation: IPA
Date: May 1 2010
End Date: May 1 2010
Type of Meet: PL, BP, DL, PP
Location: Four Mile Fork Sport & Health
City: Fredericksburg
State/Province: VA
Country: United States
Promoter: Gene Rychlak Jr.

I am currently going to school in Fredericksburg, VA. The week before the meet will be finals, so I think it would be a good way to prepare. I think I need to commit to this and just do it. I also looked at some of the state records for VA and here they are:

RAW AMATEUR
Squat-405
Bench-280
Deadlift-445

I should crush these records, these are taken from the RAW Junior 220 class

I have no idea so I will just list my current PRs here:

Squat: 435
Bench Press: 340
Deadlift: 525
Total 1300

I am not sure all of these lifts would be good for competition though.

A PL comp. bench is slightly wider than a standard bench, so the weight feels a bit differently than you would be used to. For me, I prefer a wider bench because of my size/width, but most say it sucks... So for your 340lb bench press, I suggest going out and tossing up 280lb in your first effort, and save the bigger weight for the second run, after you already raised the bar so to speak! Doing this will allow you to feel out the bench before stacking on a weight you cannot move.

Also remember you do not have a spotter touching the bar at all. No lift off (for Junior/lightweight), no fingers on the bar (I am HUGE on wanting fingers on the bar), so mentally this will be different for you than normal...

I suggest not using a spotter (have one there at all times but move the weight yourself for your 1-3 rep attemtps) for your benching from here on out! I also suggest band training (if you can get some, EliteFTS.com has some at decent prices) so you can strengthen your "coming out of the box" for the pulling (dead lifting).

I say do it man! Ain't nuthin' to it but to do it!!!
