Meet Recap: We got it! The 502lb. squat went down this meet for Tony, as well as a 325lb. bench press and 491lb. deadlift, all 3 being big meet PRs resulting in 3rd place in a very competitive 93kg class at the USAPL Springfield Showdown. In 1 year we have added over 200lbs. to his total, and the climb will continue! Tony just narrowly missed a 523lb. deadlift that would have secured a 1347lb. total and a qualification for nationals, so for redemption he’s already signed up for Regionals in July 2018 where we are going to far exceed that. This is one of those success stories every coach dreams of, with two meets in a row adding 100lbs. or more to his total and Tony keeps continuing to respond to the training like he’s getting those beginner gains. Let’s keep this train rolling!
