  • CrossFit Powerlifting Meet

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NIsY99dksbs

    380 lb Squat
    170 lb Press
    525 lb Deadlift

    I LOVED the atmosphere and the people there - I would enjoy the hell out of training at a CrossFit gym . . . problem is, I'd rather some day deadlift 600 lbs.

    It is a fun gym (crossfit) for sure.. but that press is pathetic.

      Nice job. If they dropped the squat, that would be the perfect "PL" meet for me. lol
      PM me to discuss website/video/dvd etc. related work.

          Was that you? LOL my mistake.

          I don't know why I was just assuming you put up a random video - and to be honest, I didn't watch the video until after I posted that.

          You beat my CF total though

          I got 1080 and I scored 1055, I think.

          My press was 225 though.

          375 squat
          225 press
          455 dead

          I pulled 500 up to my knees but I don't use a mixed-grip, so I didn't get it passed my knees before it slipped. My squat was pathetic, in my opinion. I used to rep out 400+ back before I jacked up my quad almost 2 years ago.

          Anyway, I was 205-210 when I did that CF total, few weeks back.

            Start by getting and holding your air in your belly before the lift. Looked like your core wasn't very tight at all.

              I too like the press, do you have an injury that prevents you from benching? How about the squat? Pardon me, I don't come by forums often anymore . . I really like the idea of the press anyway as opposed to the bench . . standing up, whole body support . . functional strength.

              Fade, I am guessing you use a double overhand grip to avoid tearing a bicep? 225 is a strong press - and no worries about knocking my press, you are right; my upper body pushing is WEAKsauce.

              What are your favorite CF workouts?

              Thank you Adam - I keep up with your journal whenever I visit this site and appreciate getting some lifting advice from you.

                Squat/Press/Deadlift would be cool.

                Good work.

                  No...no injury, I just do what I enjoy. I do bench sometimes though.

                  How much do you weigh? The 170 press is a bit low for your other lifts, but anything close to a BW press is at least decent. FWIW, my best dl is 605 and best press 242x4 (so maybe 265-275). So at least using me as an example, you have room to improve the press relatively.

                    Good to know, referring to your pressing strength in relation to your other lifts. I read in that Reg Park press thread that you are used to going heavy at overhead lifts.

                    Thank you for pointing out my weakness to me, it is exactly what I need to hear. A scenario like this is no different than the infamous frat boys who are all bi's/chest with zero legs (referencing that group of lifters has been beat into the ground, I know).

                    btw I am 180, with some added holiday pounds.

                    Thank you Red Skull.

                      No problem man. Glad I can help a little.

                      You mentioned Reg Park presses. I recently started doing them as well and am willing to bet there will be some very good carry over to military pressing strength.

                      Keep hittin it. You'll get there.

                        170 @ 180 isn't too bad at all. I think BW for reps would be pretty good by any standards. Of course it's easier the lighter you are, but still impressive.

                          Use a hook grip if you're going to double overhand your pulls and you'll find that it won't slip.

                              Yea, true, and I thank you for the support LandryP . . BUT, they are right - my press and bench press are pretty weaksauce when compared to my squat and dead . . in addition, because of this, my shoulders, chest and triceps are not as big as they should be, which results in me still hearing people say to me, "Wait . . . YOU lift weights??".

                              So, knocking my press is the tough love that I need.
