A Top 40 Weightlifting Blog

The 2011 Canadian Powerlifting Union National Bench Press Championships went way better than last year. In 2010 I opened with 230kg and BOMBED hard. This year I opened with a way more conservative 190kg and I wasn't disappointed. 190kg opener went up easy. My hand off was a little harsh but because it was lighter I handled the hand off being dropped into position. My second attempt was 200kg which didn't feel any heavier than my opener. 200kg ties my competition PB and I wanted a PB for my third attempt. I asked for 205kg which seemed like the easiest of all my attempts. Over all I'm very pleased going 3 for 3, getting a 5kg competition PB, and winning the 120kg+ Silver medal. Very cool! Snowdaddy
