Meet Recap: Payton came into the 2021 USAPL Springfield Showdown with a mission, and he executed to perfection! 524lbs. PR squat, 270lb, PR bench press, and a 567lb. PR deadlift for an 88lb. PR total over his last meet in September. Payton really stepped his game up since September and has gotten all his recovery variables back on track and it shows. After a bit of stagnation, these past 5-6 months it’s been like beginner gains all over again due to his renewed focus and motivation, and I was so happy for him to see all that hard work come to fruition on the platform. Not only did we see strength progress, but if you were to look back at his squat from September in particular, I’m not sure he had the technical ability to grind out 524lbs. like he did this past weekend. So just all around awesome improvement for Payton, and I’m sure there is plenty more to come later this year when he competes again!
