Meet Recap: Kate competed in her first ever powerlifting meet at the age of 69, going 6 for 6 at the GP Athletics Push/Pull with an 88lb. bench press and 187lb. deadlift. She had a little left in the tank on both lifts, but that was our general gameplay since nerves were very high and every lift was going to be a meet PR anyways! I started personal training Kate a little over a year ago, and immediately new she had potential well past what most would assume by here age, and I was met with very little resistance when I told her she should do a powerlifting meet, as she was all for it! So for the past 6 months we’ve dedicated our training to learning the big 3 and week by week improving form. And the experience did not fall short, as Kate said this was one of the most fun experiences of her entire life and immediately asked when we can start preparing for the next one. So if all goes to plan, we hope to have Kate competing next April in a USAPL sanctioned full power meet!
