2017 Iron Maiden - Hercules Gym
« on: May 10, 2017, 02:25:50 PM »
Sabrina has selected her next Meet, and it looks like we're headed back to NY in October. 
She's planning on doing the 2017 Iron Maiden at Hercules Gym.

This time around, she's aiming for a 400lb squat, a 225 Bench, and a 430 Dead, landing her over the 1050lb total.

Who knows what competition she'll have, but if it's anything like Laura Phelps-Swett Women's Pro-AM, it'll be a very good show.

Hopefully, I'll see a few of the I-S crew there.

Squat: 545; Bench: 350; Deadlift: 610; Total: 1490

I'll be there.  I'm on the fence as to whether I'll be watching or competing though, it's not the longest turn-around time after my August meet and I've never done 3 meets in a year before.  Also, between the Herculadies and the Sweatt Shop chicks, I'll get slaughtered.   ;D

Hey Alex, tell Sabrina to sign up fast when the entries come out.  I hear they are only releasing a small number through the web site, and they expect to sell out fast.  Guess I only have like 10 days left to decide on this meet then  :o

Rheta said that there were only 60 spots available.  I'll make sure to get registered on the Herc site, and be ready as soon as it's released.

And then I'm told "hey, if you're in the 181, you'll be against Jeanine Whittaker, who totals 1500 raw".

Oh flaming hell.  I'll probably go for it.  If I'm going to go down, it may as well be in flames  ;D

Yeah....  But she'll be registering Pro, and you'll be registering as Amateur. 

Because she's about as Natty as Ronnie Coleman was.

All joking aside, Damn.....

I am somewhat consoled that it looks like it takes 3-4x the muscle to get 2x my total lol.

And a significant amount of "Supplements".  Look at the choices/sacrifices Rheta has made to get to where she is.

Actually no, that's like 10x the muscle that I have lol.  Yeah for sure, supps are a whole different playing field.  What a shame that naturally occurring fat does not have the same effect, I'd be on velvet  ;D

Alex, wish Sabrina luck for me!  Sorry I won't be able to make it out to compete and see you guys!  I'll be contacting Rheta to back out of this meet, no way I'll be able to make it next month given my mom's health issues.
