Band Of Barbells  🍁CPU/OPA Powerlifting Team🍁 Team Training Facility Scarborough, ON📍 Esprit de Corps

Like we said, literally the HOTTEST meet of the summer has come to an end! Our boy @carlotorres__ has put in hours upon hours of work to run an unforgettable #Apexsummershowdown and we couldn't be more thankful.
Our tenacious 3: @mriaque, @dionfajardo and @avnotsav competed valiantly and came away with PR's across the board! Ave came second in the 63s, Maria came 3rd in the the 57s and Dion came back from an almost 2 year hiatus and came 5th in a highly competitive 74 class. The rest of the team assisted on the platform, the head table and even judged to create a smooth + efficient experience for the lifters.
--- Onwards to Centrals!

3 days out from the hottest meet of the summer, the @apextrainingcentre Summer Showdown hosted by our boy @carlotorres__. ---
We've got @avnotsav, @mriaque, and @dionfajardo all peaked and ready to go!! Among them we've got a big chunk of our team volunteering their time to run the platform! We'll see you all there this Saturday! It'll be a meet to remember!

We'd like to send a massive congratulations to our Co-Founder @remullagotgrams and his achievements at the IPF World Classic Championships held on home soil! Dan ended up going 8/9 with a 635 total and ended up 7th overall amongst a very competitive and talented Open 66kg class. His most distinguished accomplishment was taking the Gold medal in the Bench Press which was high on his priority list when he first got called up!

2 weeks ago the much anticipated 2018 Niagara Open went down. Following tradition we had a small contingency of 4 team members compete in an unforgettable string of performances we won't soon forget!! Here's how they did:
BoB Co-Founder @maelemons fresh off of CPU Nats competed in the 57kg division for the first time (unintentionally) and managed to finish 1st with a 2.5kg PR in her Deadlift & Total!!
@wenchenn_ competed for the first time and managed to hit her National QT, with PR's all across the board and 4th in a heavily competitive 63kg class!! --- @biancafit managed to go 9/9 for the first time and hit PR's across the board while snagging 1st place in the 63kg class!
Our lover boy and Mr. Romance @jimmytwotwo competed for the first time and managed to hit some conservative comp. PR's all the while having the most fun out of everyone there 🤗 --- We are so incredibly proud of their performances and we look forward to the next string of local OPA meets going down this summer as well as the Central & Provincial championships where almost our entire team will be competing in!!

With the 2018 IPF Classic World Championships well underway in Calgary, we'd like to take the time to congratulate all of #TeamCanada Masters & Junior division lifters for their brilliant performances over the past week!!
An honorable mention goes out our very own @jrpineda.prvl (SWIPE ⬅) who made his international debut and came away 2nd overall in the Jr. 53kg class! We'd also like to give a special shout out to our hometown girls & @afterburnbarbell own @tuffany & @yeunglorraine for their incredible performances and podium finishes 💪🙆
Later this week the Open Division take to the stage, among them is our own @remullagotgrams who will be making his international debut in the 66kg class as well as honorable member @deadlifding who'll be competing in the 59kg class. We can't forget mention Scarborough's & ABC's own @dub.c_ who'll be duking it out in the 93kg class. We'd like to wish Canada's entire Open division the best of luck! 💪💪💪

It's not every day the entire family shows up to Lit Night rocking the exact same t-shirt. Thanks again to @a7intl for producing a crispy new team Bar Grip shirt for us. This is just one of many more new developments dropping this year 👀
MIA: @chubbymuscle, @trock_dc5, @3ddierocksteady, @jrpineda.prvl.

Our boys did a tremendous job holding it down for the team 2 weekends ago at @afterburnbarbell's meet. Here are their most memorable highlights:
@alefeo2- 277.5kg. Last pull of the day, he needed this to pull for the win in the stacked 93kg literally can't paint a better picture than that!
@dendentran- 270kg. Dennis standing up with some massive weight in his first ever competition! He'll be hitting 300kg before he turns Open.
Jose- 190kg. Competing for the very first time, Jose capped off a very successful first outing with this +5kg PR!
@ifbbprojonah- 215kg. With a national QT in the books he decided to go balls out with this +10kg PR!
@dtrantracks- 245kg. Dan loves to squat, he definitely had this in the bag, just had to dig it a little deeper since he got called for time 250 is going down!
On to the next one!

Last weekend our young 120kg Quadzilla @dendentran competed for the very first time alongside his fellow teammates and put up a perfect performance. He went 9/9 hitting PR's on his squat & bench and easily qualifying himself for Nationals next year. We look forward to being a part of Dennis' competitive growth as the latest & arguably the largest addition to our family! .

What a weekend!! #SSC2018 was an absolute blast for our team and even moreso the powerlifting community here in Scarborough! Thanks so much to the @afterburnbarbell for hosting an exciting meet and to everyone that came out to show some love to our boys and the sport! .
All in all our boys held it down for the team, all coming away with PR's across the board and qualifying themselves for Nationals next year. We couldn't be more proud of @dendentran, @dtrantracks, @ifbbprojonah, @alefeo2 & Jose for their exceptional performance and to our coaching staff for making sure our boys were in good hands!! .
Big congrats to our hommies from the west @bramptonbarbell for taking home Best Team! Onwards to the 2018 Niagara Open! .
