2014 CPU Nationals, additional videos

Thanks to my teammates Mark and Trish Boyle, I was able to get some video from the front for all of my lifts.


207.5 kg opening attempt, good lift


220 kg second attempt, good lift


142.5 kg opening attempt, good lift


150 kg second attempt, good lift


260 kg opening attempt, good lift

280 kg opening attempt, good lift

I also looked at the USAPL's lifter rankings to see where my 650 kg total would stack up against my competition in the US' IPF affiliate and I was somewhat surprised to see that the total plays pretty well south of the border as well.  I guess there just aren't that many old guys powerlifting anywhere.  So, even though my lifting is far, far below what the young guys are doing, apparently, in the small pond of 40-49 yr old powerlifters, I'm doing okay.  What I think happened was, all the lifters that were good when they were young are either burnt out on competing now or they got hurt or maybe both.  They've made room for those lifters like myself that missed out on our prime years and got back into competing late.

  1. You are holding your own pretty well Craig. When is your next meet? Also, where is the best place to pick up a lifting singlet?

    1. thanks John. Next meet is in June, after that, the classic provincial championships in November. I recommend titan support systems but anyplace that sells wrestling or weightlifting singlets would work as well.
