RPS Retribution, Saturday February 28, 2015
« on: January 02, 2015, 06:53:02 PM »
I think It'saGoodDay and JTBNY are attending, either as lifters or spectators. I know DerAlta is not competing. Meet is in Auburn NY. 2 members of my lifting club are already signed up. The club usually does a March IPA meet in Ithaca NY but this year that meet is the same weekend as The Arnold. I'm strongly leaning towards competing.

My hope was that my 14 year old son would compete but he said "that's your dream, not mine." Good news is that he can pay for his own college after that statement.  ;D

Need a new singlet and elbow  :-\

Anyone else up for this?

I'll give it some thought.  All my lifts are in the toilet right now.  I'd be lucky to get a 1400 total.

I feel like my squat and bench are on par with other comps I've done but my DL needs to come up before then.

Good luck bando.  I'll spectate from the interwebz. 

I notice you're doing SL 5x5 now.  You may want to consider dropping that to 3x3 as the meet draws closer for the last two weeks or so.

If the drive was under 300 miles, I'd be competing. Would love too compete with you guys. I'll do another meet in Feb 2016. That's the 40th bday.

I'm gonna go ahead and signup, told Gene if I didn't compete I would load and if I'm lifting weights I might as well be lifting them for PR's.

Another thing is that for awhile now I have wanted to dedicate a meet to my Uncle Tom. He was a competitive lifter in the US Marines (has a few stats, like the 3rd person to bench x for x I think)  but his competition days ended when he boarded a plane to Vietnam. He misses his comp days and just LOVES my meet videos.

The fact that a portion of the proceeds of the meet go to Military Families is a bonus for this effort.

It is a good cause and closer to home for you. See Ya there!

Good luck Bando!  I'll have to see if I can come down to cheer ya on!  I'm training for the April RPS meet in Rochester, realized it wasn't a great idea to do two meets two months apart.   ;)

Had a general body club meeting today, got 5 lifters competing from my club. For everyone but me it will be their 1st comp. Got 2 females going for it as well. Got a carpool just for spectators.

 8)

*edit to add, the strong kids are doing the IPA event in March that our club typically competes in  :(
