I can’t find the other Thor powerlifting thread so creating a new one. He’s lifting this weekend, so let’s talk some crap.
He posted an easyish 445kg squat a few weeks ago. That is potentially his opener but I think they’ll play it safe and aim for 440kg as the walkout looked very tough. 450 for his second if that goes well and 460kg as the third attempt. I don’t know if this is a sanctioned meet but if it is then that squat makes a WR a reality.
Bench is probably the one which has the biggest question mark. He’s only posted a 3x3 at 220kg. That may be his opener as he probably doesn’t have a clear idea about how much the squat will fatigue him. 250kg is probably the goal.
He’s already said 410 is going to be his deadlift opener and that looked an easy lift. A 430kg deadlift will give him the ATWR if he hit the numbers above. I think that will be his second attempt. The third attempt may be 440 if he got the WR with the other lifts to give him a 10.5kg buffer on the current record.
If something goes wrong with the bench or squat, I reckon he will go as high as 450kg or perhaps even give a touch over 460kg a hail mary to try nab the deadlift WR.
