Meet Recap: Ethan made the trip down south to compete at the USAPL Georgia State Championships where he got to compete alongside his dad. Ethan had about a near perfect day, hitting a PR squat of 556lbs., and PR bench of 314lbs., and then a 600lb. deadlift on his second attempt. This came out to a nice 37lb. PR total, and knowing there is more in the tank. The goal is simple for Ethan, in that he wants to qualify for Raw Nationals, so if we can keep chipping away at his total like this it’s only a matter of time. The only hiccup came on his 3rd deadlift of 628lbs., where he just lost balance a tad and had some up and down motion, but strength wise on the day we could not have asked for much more. One of my favorite moments though of this meet was as my wife and I were watching the live stream, Charis during Ethan’s first squat attempt says his butt almost touched the floor from how deep he went. A year ago depth plagued Ethan, but now it’s zero doubt and was undeniable on the day.
