Went 8/9 at my first powerlifting meet. Got all white lights for every lift except my third attempt on bench, but I'll get that weight next time. Overall I'm happy with how the day went and all the support from @bossbarbellclub members from months ago when I first registered, all the way to my last lift at the meet. I'm incredibly thankful to have such a supportive and helpful community at BBBC.

A lil disappointed with my deadlifts today. 600 felt so heavy today. Not kool! Gotta get my life together lol finished with 589 and still had a blast! #bossofnorcal4 #bon4prep #universalnutrition #animalpak

Got a silver medal to add to my DIY windchime. If y'all want to see some videos smuggled out of North Korea, swipe for squat (286lbs) and bench (182lbs) videos. #usapl #bossofnorcal4 #bbbc #powerlifting

Big thank you to @thebarbellresistance for all his hard work and patience being my coach (DM him your headshots he's also a talent scout). & you just have to love @leah.and.life for being a great judge and stylish dresser .

If it weren't for the super encouraging @chrisg.mfc and @aaronwest22 of @missionfitnesscenter, I probably wouldn't have done the last rep you see here on my AMRAP. I was ready to call it quits on the last rep when my glutes started cramping again. 😂 #squat #BON4PREP #bossofnorcal4 #squats #glutesfiringtoohard

First meet at #bossofnorcal4 455 squat and 507 deadlift the ones that counted. Thanks to @poweredbynapalm for helping me through my first time and the entire @untamedstrength crew that rolled out to compete and to support it was a blast!

Apologies for the powerlifting inundation! Second bench attempt at 70 kg (154.3 lb). PR for paused bench. Failed my third attempt at 72.5 kg (159.8 lb). #bossofnorcal4 #powerlifting #xxfitness #girlswholift #benchpress

Squats and lower body. Second triple at 100kg, pause high bar triple at 85kg, and top set of RDLs at 265#. Dan said this was our deload workout! #powerlifting #squats #bossofnorcal4 #bossbarbellclub

All he saw was sweaty and gross all I saw was muscles and handsome ❤️❤️ how did I ever get so lucky #mcm #bossofnorcal4 #animalpak #musclepharm #mce @guzzy11

Had such a fun meet! Thanks to Boss Barbell for putting and everyone who helped to make this meet happen. Got to share the platform with @politicalmuscle again. And shared my warm ups with @bigart18 and his athlete @jveckel, and with the super cool @judge_dredd_pirate_roberts. First time competing with my good friend @honeycomb_warrior, who also had a phenomenal day! Thank you to @__vince_tagram__ for coming out to support. A big thanks to my coach @max_aita for his expert coaching and programming, I highly recommend him! And last but not least thank you @teh_littleone for cheering me on and making sure I had everything I needed, I love you! I went into this meet just wanting to have fun and low expectations because the last couple of weeks leading up to the meet was not ideal. But still walked away with PRs across the board and my first 1st place medal for powerlifting.
S: 227.5kg/501lbs

This is why you don't waste energy on anything that is not a lift, at a meet. Spotters grab your squat early? Save your energy for later. Fail a lift? Stay calm. They misload the bar by 44lb too much for an opener? Stay focused.

Great performance @granticusrex with 583lb deadlift. 600+ soon.

And the moment none of you have been waiting for, my third attempt @ 583, 33 pound PR, almost 80 pound meet PR. Just a few pounds shy of triple bodyweight (weighed in at 197) stole this from @untamedstrength please don't hate me Adam Paul.
This was RPE 10. I never want to go RPE 10 again. Surprisingly I wasn't even that sore from it...
Huge shout out to everyone from the gym and especially @thebarbellresistance for all the programming and wisdom, definitely wouldn't have come this far without you! This lift had me so elated.... #powerlifting #powerlifter #usapl #ipf #sbd #adipowers #inzerbelts #gangstawraps #untamedstrength #trainuntamed #squat #squats #skwaats #bench #benchpress #deadlift #deadlifts #poweredbythebarbellresistance #startingstrength #hookgrip #bossofnorcal4 #noididntpoopmyself #rpe #rpe10 #over9000 #powerliftingmotivation @powerliftingmotivation

Love this man with all my heart ❤️❤️ I'm so proud of everything he accomplishes. He told me way before we signed up for our last meet that the next meet we did he would be back to where he was for squats before his surgery. And look at him 😍😍. I have nothing to show you guys with my workout because it's all boring, so why not take the time to show off this stud #bossofnorcal4 #animalpak #adidas #powerlifting #powerhouse #powerlifter @guzzy11

Last lifting video post from the meet and probably the most hyped I ever been for deadlifts. I matched my gym PR on my 2nd attempt, which is a 30kg meet PR for me. I tried 467lbs for my third, and even though it didn't count, the cheering and support from my friends and the audience was electric! (watch with sound). That rush made me hold on till the very end. You can hear the everyone go "awww" when I got two red lights lol. I really appreciate all the love and support on that lift!

#TSAthlete Sarah Wellberg (@teamrackcurls) had an outstanding showing at the @usapowerlifting #bossofnorcal4. Under the guidance of Coach Hani (@hani_tsa) she finished with a 120kg / 264lb squat, 67.5kg / 148lb bench, and a 145kg / 319lb deadlift (shown here - wait for the smile at the end!). All together this made for a 25kg PR on her total as well as achieving her qualifying total for nationals. Expect to see Sarah crushing weights this October in Orlando for Raw Nationals!

545 in October at vs 545 this past weekend. I think I got it further in October, but I had to dump it quick this weekend cause I felt a feeling in my lower back. The type of feeling you don't play games with. Probably avoided an injury, and here 3 days later my back feels fantastic. So I don't regret not fighting the lift. ............
I swear videos are coming soon. The formatting is messing up my IG cause I'm on android and they were all recorded on iPhone (if someone knows how to convert file types easily, let me know). But this is what I've got for now. #bossofnorcal4

Probably my most disappointing lift. I got 330lbs in the gym, but couldn't get 324lbs in the meet. Still got a 7.5kg meet PR. I need to learn how to lock my elbows at the start lol. Thank you @carter.ly @pamv_anderson @dedicated_joshua and @merrbertt for recording and handling me!

Squats from the meet. I went 2 of 3. Got called for depth on the last attempt, which would have tied my gym PR. 413 was still a 17.5kg/38lbs meet PR #BossofNorcal4 #bon4 #squats #usapl #usapowerlifting #bossbarbellclub #powerlifting

Last post from the meet: squat 3 and a PR @ 100 kg/220.5 lb. #powerlifting #xxfitness #girlswholift #squats #bossofnorcal4

Competed in the 74kg / 163lb weight class and finally went 9/9. Was pretty conservative with the attempt selection but I'm happy. Good times with @tschaeffer3 @kidcali_9 @newtoncheng @will_the_thrill5.9

@5trong = mvp

Squat: 215kg / 474 lbs

@granticusrex lifts from #bossofnorcal4
Squat: 2nd @ 518, 3rd @540 fail...spotter furthest to the.right, facing him, actually pushed up on the bar as soon as he began to grind. I was in direct sight of it, and the camera doesn't capture the first touch. Failed the 4th attempt, 4m minutes later (540 repeat).
#
Bench: 2nd @ 336. 3rd fail @ 358
#
Deadlift @583...his first attempt was 496, but the loaded 540, which he pulled. Changed his 2nd to 560ish, and went all out for 583... never seen anyone grind out a rep like that
#
Lots of shit went wrong at this meet, beyond his control, and the ability to conserve/funnel rage into determination and focus for the remaining lifts was excellent. Not bad for a second meet.. congrats on 3rd and I told you you'd pass me very soon.

Bench third. 358 🔴🔴🔴 this would have been an 18lb overall PR. since I was no longer going 9/9 I went with a #fuckit decision and said 358 instead of 351. Didn't work out. I'll get it soon tho. So I finished bench with 336. 67 pound meet PR in 4 months. Not bad.
