BLK's Big 3 Lifts
« on: May 10, 2014, 10:44:27 AM »
I'm starting this thread to track my big 3 powerlift movements.  It'll be interesting to compare earlier lifts to recent ones as I progress and get stronger.

These were my lifts from my 1st meet on 5/3/14.  Squat and bench were not PRs for me in the meet (well, squat was for RAW Classic, no wraps), but they were close to PRs and judged to be legitimate lifts by 3 judges.

340lb Squat


240lb Bench


370lb Deadlift


I'll post followups as I achieve more PRs and have video.

Yeah buddy.  Another meet, another PR vid.  I tied my bench and deadlift meet PRs and got a 35 lbs squat meet PR.  It was also a 10 lb all-time PR for me as well.

Nice work Ron.

You impressed the hell out of me.  SRS.  Was an honor to lift with you.

It'll be broken on May 2, 2015.  I hope to be over 400 by then.  Gotta lot of work to do to get into the same flights as Alex and Flex  :D

Nice work Ron.

Thanks man.  You've been a huge help to me with your advice and encouragement.  I am already thinking of next year.  If you ever get sent to Taneytown again, give me a shout so we can grab a beer.  I'm trying to talk the wife into coming next year and make a short vacation out of it to go the the falls next year.

New 5lb gym PR from today on bench.  I'm going to shoot for 260 for my mock meet.  This was 250.  I hit the damn upright though.  >:(

Congrats.  Did you consider throwing on the extra 5 pounds to make it an even 400?  I might have a hard time passing that up.

This week was my light week but the weights were feeling good.  I held off from going for a true max.  I'll be doing a mock-meet in 2 weeks where I'll shoot for 405.  Until then, I'll stick with 395 and probably try to get two sets of them in next week.

I fell victim to peer pressure and decided to do a single with 395 then up it to 405 for 4 pretty plates per side for my first time since returning to the iron.  Thanks for the gentle push Flex :bigthumb:



If all goes well, I'll be posting 3 new PR videos next weekend.   8)

Planned lifts are:

Squat:  375, 410, 425?
Bench:  240, 255, 260?
Deadlift:  350, 380, 405?

All PRs on 2nd attempts.
Deadlift is a real big ? still though.
