Heavy Saturday Power Party !

Here, "Hunky Dorky" lives in a world of Powerlifting trophies.

Heavy day at Nancy's condo gym...LOOSE Katana shirt after the usual Raw warm ups to 330 ..needed lots of sets to get the soreness from Wednesday's workout gone...

Shirt ON then used 440 --500-- 510-- singles.

The 510 felt heavy...but the shirt was not in Katana 'evening gown configuration'---so since it was in 'chokey' mode ...I guess I musta powered that one out myself .

Then we used reverse bands, and took the bar up to
then 600
for 4 singles---
the progression being UP from 2 singles in the last heavy shirt workout 2 weeks time I may use a weaker set of bands--try more singles or add weight to the 600--but we will progress upward.


I see in the WABDL schedule the earliest meet to try 600 again in --is in Pasco Washington in March on the 14th---Pasco is a HARD travel for me...hope I can figure a way to go...I'm a little too scary looking to hitchhike.

But in 2009, the good news for our loyal WABDL Northwest Team is, there are meets already scheduled that aren't too hard to plan, like:

June 13: WABDL National Bench Press and Dead Lift Championships

Shilo Hotel Portland OR

Gus Rethwisch 763-545-8654 or 503-901-1622

August 22: WABDL Iron Gladiators Great Northern Bench Press and Dead Lift Championships

Red Lion Hotel Olympia WA

These will be terrific meets, plus Bull R Productions in Seattle is putting on some good meets this year too---so maybe we'll be back in action here soon...

I'd like to expand our little traveling team to a few more members this year...
so far we usually send
1. Nancy Carpenter--
2. myself.. Bench Bozo--
3. Jody Cranston

but it's not far fetched to see.....

Jane Smith
Warren Orr
Bruce Everett-
(he can really deadlift !!)

added to the traveling team of competitors, it's great when we all get together and speak "barbell"

Dave Greene tells me he may enter the next BCPA meet here in Vancouver in the bench only...I expect him to lift Raw ! (no bench shirt)

Good Work PLUSA Readers !! The latest issue of Powerlifting USA is all but sold out at Mayfair magazines....
I expect the newest issue to be on the stands in 2 weeks !
