Meet Recap: 1st place overall in the 84kg division at the Arnold Pro American for Abbee! PRs across the board, including finally taking down her nemesis of a 385lb. squat! She rounded out her total with a 231lb. and a 457lb. to finish with a 1074 total and an IPF score of 762! Going into this meet we knew some PRs were going to be there, but we had the primary goal of putting up a qualifying total to hopefully get into Primetime for the 84kg women come Nationals. We figured somewhere around the 490kg area would be safe, and she was able to finish with 487.5kg. On meet day though, she was back and forth in the running for 3rd overall and nice little check, and come 3rd deadlifts it was all on the line. We put the number on the bar we needed, but after the other competitor hit her deadlift, we’d need to jump up another 5kg to be able to leapfrog back into 3rd. It wasn’t an easy decision, but we stuck to our primary goal and made sure to put on the bar what we knew Abbee could pull, and that was our original 457lbs.
