Here are my results from the 2015 APF Big Iron Iowa and Nebraska State Powerlifting Championships:

Squat – 3 for 3 – Final Attempt: 501.5 lbs (227.5 kg)

Bench Press – 2 for 3 (Missed 352.7) – 2nd Attempt: 336.2 lbs (152.5kg)

Deadlift – 3 for 3 – Final Attempt: 523.6 lbs (237.5 kg)

Full Power Total – 1,361.3 lbs (617.5 kg)

These lifts got me 2nd place in the 242 lb Raw Men’s Division.


Here is how these numbers compare to my 1st Powerlifting Meet at the SPF Rick Hussey Tribute Meet:

Squat – 402.3 lbs

Bench Press – 325.2 lbs

Deadlift – 451.9 lbs

That makes for a 99.2 lbs increase on Squat, 11b increase on Bench Press, and 71.7 lbs increase on Deadlift for a 181.9 lb increase to my total.  I did this in 7 months!  I feel very good about how my training is coming along.  New goals have been set and a new training cycle has been started.  I can’t wait to compete again! (Videos will be posted later.)

Felt great today. Very strong. Shoulders didn’t hurt at all. Hit new rep PR for 175×10.


Set a new rep PR on OHP 175×10. I will most likely do some accessory exercises tonight. This was a welcome PR workout after yesterday’s bad DL session.
