Meet Recap: Kate competed at the USAPL Missouri State Championships, and at 73 years and in her 8th competition she was able to PR her total by 12.5kg! Kate PR’d every single lift, with a 198lb. squat, 121lb. bench press, and a 259lb. deadlift for a 579lb. total! We even thought we were being aggressive on that 3rd deadlift since there was nothing on the line to lose, but Kate still smoked it with more in the tank based on her ability to grind. There is not much else to say other than it is pretty incredible for someone at Kate’s age, and now experience level, to be adding 4.95% to her total. But this past year or so she has made some big improvements from being more focused year round. Prior, we would go in and out of powerlifting specific training as she would get a little burnt out, but more recently we’ve been able to continue to train hard at all times and the progress shows.
