Nice squatting Dave. You have ridiculous explosive strength.

Pull is looking good. Where were you pulling at?

Stay healthy and you’ll definitely tear shit up.

Thank you. It has taken years of hard work to get where I am, and will take years more to get where I want to be. Im just trying to keep up with the pack. The sport is very competitive right now and there are a lot of freaks in the game. Thank you again, I appreciate the compliment. [/quote]

Yeah, I know what you mean. I live in Alaska and we have sub-junior world record holders here. I’m getting out squatted by 15 and 17 year old girls haha. All you can do is train hard though and be consistent. It’s definitely a sport that requires a ton of patience and hard work. I’ve only had one powerlifting meet so far and have fallen in love with the sport. Anyway, I hope your upcoming meet goes well! Best of luck to you. :slight_smile:
