2010 Texas Cup (powerlifting meet)

2010 APF/AAPF Texas Cup

October 23

The Colony Tx, Cascades Events Center at The Colony, Fairfield Inn & Suites.

I've decided to do this meet. Im now about 5 weeks out, just starting training last week. haha

Lockout will also be a sponsor for this event and have a booth handing out free samples as well.

Looks like i'll be moving up to the 220 lb class to chase some more Police/Fire records.

Come out if you can!!

Just out of curosity, what is your best DL with no suit on?

No offense, but are you still bloated looking(in the face) and what caused that?
Was it the pic, your diet, or something else?
I've just never seen you look that way before...

A suit does nothing for Deadlift just so you know. Im shooting for about 630.

I was force feeding as i am now to make it up to 220. Im leaner now at about the same weight.

How heavy are you right now? Is there another jeans-on weigh in coming up?

As for the suit, then why do you put one on when you and others compete(is it required?)?
I understand they will not make a huge difference like a bench or a squat suit.
I can definitely see how it would help someone with a sumo stance DL though.

That is awesome weight for your size dude and congrats!

I am down to 233lbs now(been doing cardio 7 days a week) and finally becoming very vascular.
I actually have been doing some DLing the past 4 weeks...pulled 585lbs last weekend, but I seem to be stuck there.
You looked much better before btw(but then again, that is just my "bodybuilding" side coming out in me).
You know how us BB'ers and PL'ers are on opposite sides of the spectrum!

Didn't you weigh in for a meet in jeans a few years ago?

Most all get suck locking out when deadlifting. A suit wont help your lockout, it cant. If you are the very few that just have problems getting it off the ground then a DL suit will slightly help you. I can probably get about 700 off the ground and get stuck about 6 inches up. haha

I do the same with or with out a suit. I wear my squat suit to DL for mental reasons, it's tighter keeping everything tight...
585 is getting up there! Not many people can DL over 600lbs in all reality.

I leaned out a week after the meet when i stopped force feeding. haha
I dont do any cardio and eat fast food everyday!!!

Tex, i may have if i knew i was under the weight. Cant remember.

I hear ya and thank you.
I am part of the very few(probably due to my back strength) and long as I lift the weight a few inches, the rest is simple.
I have to keep forcing myself to bend at the knee's and incorporate my legs into the movement.
My weaknesses are my grip(trained with straps always) and also my leg strength(450-475 raw parallel squat and me being 6/4 sure doesn't help things, lol).

I have told you about your diet vs. no cardio and one day...you will see the light.
Everyone with good genetics always dies out later in life.
Just look around at all the fat bitches in the world that used to look smoking hot back in their day.
I sure wish I had good genes and could eat whatever I wanted anytime I wanted!
