Title: APA
Post by: tooth on July 30, 2018, 10:33:08 AM
Anyone done an APA meet?  I'm trying to find a meet that fits into my life, and I'm having a tough time.  I have a strongman comp the end of September, and I'd like to get in a full meet plus a deadlift only meet before the end of the year.  Just haven't heard of anyone doing an APA meet and they seem to run allot of them in my area.

I've been to one, I think that this Fed is supposed to be the red headed stepchild of feds, but the meet I went to was fine. I don't really have a problem with shirtless men sitting around drinking beer after their lifts.

My first meet was an APA meet. It was ran well, everything went smoothly. The only ting I noticed was the judging was super lax. There was this one woman who supposedly broke the APA record for squat. All three of her squats weren’t even close to parallel. Even my dad who knew nothing about powerlifting commented on it, he asked why she barely bent her knees

Was the gym near a trailer park?  ;D
