My one and only Powerlifting experience was more than mere words could express.
May 3, 2003: My first and last Powerlifting contest. I'm the tall guy in the back row (white t-shirt), behind the big check. This was a great experience:
  • Here's my favorite quote from that day, maybe for the year!
    A couple guys thought there would be lots of women there (Oh yea! Chicks dig Powerlifters!). So they were talking back-stage about how girls will be hanging all over them after the competition. Another guy mentioned that he brought his girlfriend, and they started teasing him and telling him what a bad idea that was:
    "Dude! You shouldn't have brought your girl-friend here.
    That's like bringing sand to the Beach!"

    These guys were really disappointed when they found out the audience was full of high-school boys and other powerlifters!
  • There were lots of nationally ranked pros there! About 50 guys competed.
  • I got to meet Louie Simmons of WestSide Barbell fame.
  • The guy in the blue shirt won 1st place overall with a 715 bench in the 220 weight class - The big check was for $1,000!
  • I dropped from 265 to 235 to get in the 242 weight class. Overshot by 7 lbs 'cause the scale at my gym was off - Oops!
  • I wore a single-ply bench shirt, but it LOWERED my max by 40 pounds. Bench shirts aren't magic! You have to train with them, and train for them. I learned that the hard way!
  • One contestant got into powerlifting to keep her rehab interesting. She benched 100 lbs that day! Better still: The rehab got her out of a wheel chair and into braces and crutches!
  • There was no predictable correlation between size and strength! I've known this concept for years theoretically, but it was of amazing to see it in action!
I think every lifter should enter a contest for the experience, and to give serious powerlifters someone to beat!
