Meet Recap: Great day yesterday for Al at the USPA Red, White, and Blue Championship, where he finished with a 451lb. squat (17lb PR.), 319lb. bench (23lb. PR), and 507lb. deadlift (17lb. PR). I think Al will agree the best part of the day was locking out that 507lb. deadlift, as it was fairly unexpected and a big boost to the day. Deadlifts had been very up and down during the last 16 weeks due to experimenting back and forth with sumo, and about 2 weeks out we made the switch back to conventional and it paid off. It has been awesome to work with Al, who is a guy who gives so much back to the powerlifting community. He travels all over the country with his company @squat2depth_apparel to support and give back to the lifters, and yesterday was his time to get his!
