2016 RPS Redemption III- May 28th
« on: January 29, 2016, 08:09:40 AM »
Who's paid and registered for it?


 ;D ;D

I'm in for one so far, I would like to get a couple more in the books soon.  This isn't until the end of May, and there's not much happening after that with the other feds so I may need to jump in another one before then.

It's nice not having to buy a federation membership, especially since there is only one meet in FL with them.  So all's left to buy is a singlet, going to get an Inzer singlet.  I need to read up on the RPS rules also.
Appearantly I need wrist wraps under 48"brain farted..nevermind
Good news is I can use my 3M knee wraps.

Dude... While you may have wrists like normal people's knees, those 6 foot wrist wraps are actually knee wraps....

And if you're looking for Serious wrist wraps, Bert just started making his own.  And considering he's benching north of 600lbs, you could look into them.

Or get the Odin Wraps from Strengthshopusa.com

And serious Congrats, that is a great Meet.  A great wealth of Competitors will be there and the Underwoods always kick it up a notch.

lmfao!!!it just clicked in my head...48" for some reason my brain was reading it as 28"  I may need more sleep, I'm good then.  I've got some Anderson powerlifting wraps, I think they are 36" Stiff as phuck and I love them.


Thanks for the support guys, I'm looking forward to this.

Just ordered my inzer singlet.

Bench is up to 405
Squat-a comfortable 635
DL..525 ish...I'm not working on this at all this time around.  With any luck, adrenaline will help add some weight here, other than that, I know my DL sucks and really don't give a dam at this point. It's always been my weakest lift.

Hoping to add more lbs to bench and squat before the meet.

5 1/2 weeks out.

So I was reading through the rules for the meet again and just realized that RPS's raw classic division is completely raw, meaning during squats you cannot use sleeves.  They can be worn while not lifting but must be slid down during the lift.

Sleeve users must compete in the Raw modern against wrapped squatter...so may as well wrap.

That is what I keep telling Lisa.  She uses sleeves only.  I bought her some wraps; just waiting for her to use them.

A guy just posted on the Directors FB that he will be there recording all lifters in 4k!!!

Also my wife will be there recording my lifts, so there will be plenty of vids. 

I would love to get a total over 1600, we'll see though, I was hoping by now to be able to rep 405 for at least a double, but been lucky to get a single, and my DL is really holding me back.
