2011 IPA Battle of Champions


This was my first IPA meet. Gene Rychlak is the Vice President of the International Powerlifting Association ("IPA"). They put on a great meet at the 2011 Europa Battle of Champions in Hartford Connecticut. Here is a short video of me at the meet - I was able to hit a RAW PR of 485 bench (competing in 308 Masters at a bw of 284).

Nicely done!




Nice lifts. I really enjoyed your "Beast Reality" series on elitefts. It helped persuade me to start training for my first powerlifting meet.


Nice to see a good showing for us Master 308's. I did an IPA meet with Dan Dague in '08 and it was one of the best ran meets I've done. I'm looking forward to the day when I can get back out on the road and compete in the IPA. When that day comes I hope we can compete with one another.
