That's right up the street from you isn't it?  It's in Orlando all week long.  They never have cool stuff like that here.

I didn't even notice, lol.  Now, I'm going to see where they are

yup, it's about 5 minutes from my house.  unfortunately, all the times are while I'm working.....an hour away.

Wait, so it's now up to six days long on two simultaneous platforms???  Unless they're aiming to make this a full week long at some point, maybe they should consider raising the qualifying totals?   Cripes, that's a lot of lifters.  :o

They had 3 platforms going yesterday afternoon.  I could have qualified so it must be slack  :o

Oh damn, I missed the third platform.  LOL.  OK yeah, big meet  ;D  I haven't compared qualifying totals across different national events recently, but last time I did I know USAPL raw was way easier to qualify for than some others... like say XPC. 

I would be competing in the fed with the sky high qualifying totals :facepalm:

I have a feeling the qualification lifts are so they can fill out the field.  Just because you qualify doesn't mean you'll necessarily want to pay to travel and compete in it. I would though at least once. 

I have seen some very strong m'f'ers in this too thought  A bunch of 66kg guys benching deep into the 300s and squatting and deadlifting over 500.


I have yet to see a high squat white-lighted.  They make them go deeeeeep.

That's mind blowing thinking about doing that RAW!

What did he get? Did he break his previous record?

He ended up with 1031 (467.5kg).  1080 was coming up fast but midpoint he stopped.  That gave the spotters some serious work to do.  They couldn't get the weight back on the rack for the squat supports, so they had him drop it on the bench rack which was lower at bench height (usapl used one piece of equipment for squat and bench).   If he missed that he would have had to dump it over his head I guess.

It was pretty dicey and I wouldn't have wanted to be on that platform.  I know they want to be able to give the audience a great view and monolifts obstruct a lot, but damn.... that kind of weight has the potential to kill or maim someone pretty bad.

yeah,  I hate jacks, I think it's f'in nuts squatting without some sort of safeties, Although, I just watched a guy squat 800 in a mono and dumped the bar off his back at the top of the lift and the safety straps snapped and were flung across the building like rubber bands, fortunately no one was hurt. Just goes to show you that even a mono can fail.
