Ok longtime lurker, seldom post take it for what you will. I've posted before but with no consistancy. Same goes with picture taking ability. I competed in my first organized lifting meet last saturady and had a decent day. I competed in strict curl, bench press, and deadlift portions. Curl: 154 PB:167.5 Bench: 308 PB:315 Dead: 551 New PB (previous bests: 506x2 week prior, 523 second lift at comp) (note: lbs converted from kg's) Body Weight: 235 Height: 6' Age: 25 I didn't really train for the curl, so I know I could have done better there. And I got 308 on my second lift, then passed on my third atempt in order to have some more time and energy for the upcoming deadlifts. This was a N.A.S.A meet and competed in the Powersports portion rather than the powerlifting. I did this because in powersports the only equipment you are allowed is really a belt, unlike the bench shirts and squat/deadlift suits. I don't train with or use these suits/shirts so sort of puts me at a disadvantage if I were to compete unequiped vs. equiped. In Powersports participants do a strict curl rather than a squat that counts for a total. Just thought I'd share.
