Meet Recap: There have not been too many times I’ve been more excited for a PR than watching Joe lock out his 3rd attempt deadlift of 480lbs. this past Saturday! I have worked with Joe for a little over a year now, and there is not a week that goes by that he doesn’t put his all into every training session, and it paid off with meet PRs on all 3 lifts and a PR total. Joe competed at the USA Powerlifting Springfield Showdown where he finished with a 353lb. squat, 231lb. bench press, and 480lb. deadlift with plenty in the tank on each lift. While I knew the strength was there for all those lifts, I didn’t know they’d move as easily as they did, especially on bench press. I believe we now have a perfect game plan for building off of as Joe is already signed up for his next meet, where we will actually get to compete together July 27th down in Arkansas, and I have little doubt that we will be able to improve upon then meet once again!
