T Nation

My First Comp, Some Additional DLs

Stats: 6’5", 201 lbs - 20 years old

I had my first competition at the CPF National Raw Amateur Championships (drug tested) a few weeks ago. I competed in the 100kg (220 lbs) weight class even though I weighed in at a measly 92.2kg (202 lbs). I broke the national (Canadian) squat, deadlift, and total records for my age and weight category. Pretty excited about it, though the record squat was super low to begin with… I guess there aren’t really many 20-23 year olds competing in the 220s. Any how, my best lifts are in the video, and more info is in the video description.

This next video was taken just a couple of days ago, I hit 4x4x415, 2x470, 2x520, and 8x415 but only got the 520 double on film. Notice how my competition best DL was 237.5kg (524 lbs) yet I pulled 520 for an easy double a few weeks later lol

sweet

GOOD JOB! You got some bench arch on ya as well.

Where abouts in Canada are you?

Nice job on the meet. Where was it held this year?

If you like lifting raw, there is ton’s of it now in the CPU. There’s a meet tomorrow in Mississauga that you can check out. I assume you live near since I recognize the McMaster logo.

Says the guy in a suit and wraps :slight_smile:

It doesn’t need any help growing. It’s taken off like a shot. The Ottawa Open has over 50 lifters and it’s almost all classic with very little equipped. I think it’s also helped grow our membership.

hehe, I did my last meet raw, and the next meet will be raw as well! Will likely do both at Nationals if they combine it again.

That’s quite a few lifters…Good to see that.
