As of early 2013, we are still in the process of rebooting unto the new platform

If you want to keep track of the relaunch you can:

  1. Like us on Facebook
  2. Follow us on Twitter
  3. Send me (Kris) an e-mail and let me know that you'd like to join the new site when it is ready.

Once we are ready to relaunch, we will start spreading the word. Until then, expect silence to mean we are heads down coding. :) The forum is still open for active members, but don't expect a lot of activity here since meets are currently on hold.

I never got much out of the CoC grippers except getting better @ CoC grippers.  What really boosted my grip was one arm hangs from a pullup bar for time up to a minute.  That and no-hook clean grip DLs.

Hi Wade,
thanks for the feedback.
My grip is a weak point so will try out a couple of things to see it improve. I had to drop a couple of DLs lately, which needs to be addressed come meet time.

1 arm hangs: I will defintely try that.
Best regards,
Chris.

Yesterday was meet day. Considering my meet preparation or lack thereof I am OK with the results.
The meet was very well organized and always somebody available to answer my questions. As always the comeradery in powerlifting is truly impressive. No matter the lifting level, everyone was treated with respect and got cheered on. There were a lot of impressive lifts in all categories. Especially with the squats, I witnessed a lot of lifts that looked like they were going nowhere when all of a sudden the lifter using everything got it up.
I weighed in at 91.3 kg putting me into the 93 kg class.  1st and 2 nd place where out of the picture from the get go. But it was a nice "battle" for third. And only with the deadlift I was able to secure third.
Squat:
145 kg: 3 whites
155 kg: 3 whites
165 kg: 2:1 against for depth and probably not standing upright enough

Bench:
115 kg: my nerves did not hold and I lowered the weigth before the commands came.  Roll Eyes
120 kg: 3 whites
125 kg: 3 whites but had to fight the weigth each cm.

DL:
190 kg: 3 whites, no problem but very nervous
200 kg: Got it up but shoulders fell forward on top, retracted them again, but 3 red
200 kg: 3 whites

Total 480 kg

Great to be in a real meet again!
