Meet Recap: Demetria had herself a day at the USAPL Arnold Pro Finals, and maybe I am a bit biased, but 397.5kg total at basically 47kg (weighed 47.04kg) is one of the bigger breakout performances of the weekend. Demetria has elevated herself into a special category now in the 47/48kg class, and maybe what I was most proud to see from her is a perfectly executed 9 for 9 day. Demetria went from someone who struggled with meet day execution in the past to being a clutch gameday performer, and seeing her confidence now on the platform is a proud coach moment. She was able to PR all 3 lifts, with a 303lb. squat, a 204lb. bench press, and a 369lb. deadlift to secure an 876lb. total! It’s hard to say which lift sticks out the most, but I know a big conversation we were having these last couple weeks is if we would push into the 300s for squat. Demetria asked me to trust her and that she knew she had it, and she couldn’t have been more right. I am very confident she had at least 2.5kg more in the tank, and come September maybe that 3 plate squat will be there.
