Virginia State Powerlifting Meet Today!!
The meet was awesome, such a cool experience. I met a ton of awesome people and saw some very strong people get huge lifts. It was a great time, a long day but I think I did pretty well.

My Lifts:
410 good
430 good
450 no good, I think I tried to go too deep
They were pretty strict on depth, but I think I hit it well.

Bench Press
295 good
305 miss
305 miss
Both times I got the lift but got red lighted for two different things:
1. Ass came off the bench, just a little bit
2. Did not pause on the chest long enough, other wise I crushed this lift

495 good, easy
530 great
550 awesome, good lift, at least a 20 pound PR for me

Overall it went well, I have a lot of work to do on my bench. I talked to some guys there that said I have a ton of potential, I need to figure out the whole pause thing on bench. I think pressing out of the bottom will help, and just more practice with a pause.

Squat I just need to keep working, and put in some max effort days, I love the 531 but I thought I should have been able get more on squat.

Deadlift is by far my favorite and best lift, so I will just keep doing whatever for that, I would like to hit a 600 deadlift by the end of the year.

Awesome day, I met a lot of cool people and had a great experience.

By the way, all of these lifts are now Virginia State Records, once the IPA website gets updated I will throw a link up. I got first place in my division, but I was the only one. But I got second overall in the Raw 220s, for any age group. I will get some pics up as soon as possible, my roommate got some great shots. Sorry no vids this time.

I'm happy to be the second to virtually congratulate you. Great lifts, obviously, and I'm glad that the experience itself was a positive one.:rockon:

Awesome job Jeremy. You do have a ton of potential. You'll be elite level in no time.

I think bench is easiest for me to get astray on. The heavier I go the less I want to lower it to my chest.

Thanks guys, all of your support has been so helpful to keep me motivated, thank you.

And I want to most of all thank Steve, BTB, because quite a while ago he suggested to me that I start training like a powerlifter, and made me see my potential, so I appreciate big guy!!
