Meet Recap: Christiane is your newest USAPL Pro! Going into the Arnold Amateur, we knew if Christiane hit her lifts, she likely was the front runner to win. What we didn’t know is just how much she was going to have left in the tank, and that she would finish 3rd overall in the points series standings for the meet. Christiane finished the day with a 394lb. American Record squat, a 264lb. bench press, and a 407lb. deadlift to finish with a big PR total of 1067lbs! With squat in particular, we planned to be somewhat conservative with either 391lbs., or if things were feeling good, go for the American Record with 394lbs. Needless to say things were feeling good. Her best squat in the gym was a 397lb. RPE 11 all out grinder, so neither of us were expecting her 3rd attempt to move that effortlessly. But that is definitely good data for the future, as she peaked phenomenally on all 3 lifts, had a pretty easy weight cut, and the day could not have gone any better!
