Meet Recap: Joaquin competed at the USA Powerlifting Oklahoma State Championships, where he was able check off one of his big goals in breaking through the 1500lb. total barrier. Joaquin finished the day with a 568lb. squat, 341lb. bench press, and a 595lb. deadlift for a 1504lb. total and first place in the 105kg class! Outside of the PR total, the other big PR of the day was Joaquin’s squat. When we started working together about 6 months ago one of the big goals was to get back to his all time best gym squat of 570lbs. When we first started, his strength was probably around the 525-530lb. range and this meet marked the first time he’s been able to not only match that strength, but show that he’s got even more in the tank.
Weight Class: 105kg
