Held a practice meet for myself last Thursday, and hit 105/140 really easily with no misses. I'm feeling good for my meet in 2 weeks.

My son hit a big DL PR today. His back was a little rounded and he hitched it up a bit but I'll let that slide this once.

Default South Dakota State Powerlifting meet results

My wife and I competed in our first sanctioned Powerlifting meet this weekend. Good experience, but personally, I still prefer the concept of Oly lifting over Powerlifting. The presence of spotters on every single lift really takes a bit of the you vs the bar element away, IMO.

Results:
Went six for nine lifts, totaled of 475 kg, 40-49 mens masters. Did not know to write in "RAW" on entry form, so I was competing with equipped lifters.

Squat:
#1: 140kg attempt, red lighted for not deep enough. Judge said I need 1 inch more depth. Bummer.
#2: 145 kg attempt, red lighted for coming up "too powerful" and adjusting my foot position somehow.
#3: 145 kg - completed.

Was hoping for 150 or 155 kg, but the first two lifts being red-lighted messed with me.

Bench:
Made 100 kg and 105 kg, missed on 110kg. Should have attempted 107.5. 110 kg would have been a 6 lb PR. Go big or go home, right?

Deadlift:
3 for 3 attempts.
#1: 197.5 kg - easy opener
#2: 215 kg - easy established max from a week ago.
##: 225 kg - a bit of a struggle to pull, but three light lights and and a 21 lb PR!!! Felt really good. Plus, I moved up in the flight order and was lifter #8 of 12 instead of #2/3 of 12 in the Squat/Bench. Nice to be mixing it up with the heavy lifters!!!

My wife went seven for nine, winning the women's masters division. Total of 280 kg.

I will definitely enter the next meet as a "RAW" lifter and see how that affects the outcome. I personally prefer to simply to see how well I can perform against the bar vs equipping up for the lifts. I do use a belt for anything above 90%.

Next goals:
1) Crossfit Open sectionals - next six weeks. No intentions on qualifying as an individual, still too young for Masters, but hope to help the affiliate team as much as possible.
2) Rocky Mtn State Games Oly meet in July - 1st Oly meet.

let me guess...it was an USAPL meet?

The first redlight was for it being your first meet, the second was because you squatted more than the head judge.

Not aware of or clued in on PL federation politics or meet rites of passage. Care to share insights??

I train alongside a bunch of USAPL national judges and I've worked several USAPL meets. I find the meets to be joyless soul sucking affairs with judging that is excessively harsh...unless the lifter is well known and liked.

They deserve cred for judging strictly but not fairly. That's been my experience.

Thanks. I was really floored with the red light on the second squat. "too powerful coming up????". I still had some gas left for heavier weight, but wanted a meet total. The 21 lb PR really made my day.

Really no control on the fed choice here in SD.
