Meet Recap: Kenji competed at the USAPL Winter Thaw this past weekend and got the revenge we were hoping for on deadlift from his last meet in November. Kenji finished the day with a 474lb. squat, 253lb. and a 446lb. deadlift for a PR total of 1173lbs! The big PR came from deadlift, where he hit 33lbs. more than he did in November and displayed the strength we knew he had all along. This was Kenji’s last meet as a Teen, and it’s pretty crazy that he’s done 11 meets prior to turning 20, dating all the way back to 2016 when he was 13 years old! These last 6 weeks were a bit rocky, as Kenji’s school and social demands were at an all time high, but he did a fantastic job getting the work in and we adjusted as needed to make sure on meet day things could come together as best as we could hope.
