We need a thread dedicated to raw powerlifting. We already have three sticky’s about gear, so this is for the Raw lifters only.
Topics should include:
-Favorite training program or split
-Upcoming Raw Meets
-Raw Personal Records set
-Raw elite lifters (ex. Stan Efferding)
-Best Exercises to increase your main lifts
-The big guys can post their workout here, to inspire everyone else.
-Raw Lifting Videos
I personally have competed twice last year, both raw, and both in the APA. Therefore I did use knee wraps. (metal triple black lines, if you have any questions) My lifts in the last meet went like:
520 - opener, nailed it
535 - PR, but racked it too soon didnt count
550 - I sat in the whole too long and stayed there, lol
335 - opener, easy
355 - no problem
370 - stuck two inches off chest
495 - opener, easy
515 - last meets best
525 - PR, nailed it
540 - PR, slow but got it. Yes, i took a fourth, i felt really good for some reason, and had to avenge my poor squat.
I am keeping a training log, but its hidden in the I,BB section. Before, I get hated on, let me tell your that i tried I,BB for fun and to give me a break from Westside. Now, i am back to westside since i want to compete again and im still keeping my log in the I,BB section since i already have all the I,BB stuff there.
