Hercules of the West
Last Sunday (25.09.16) Deb took to the platform at the Hercules of the West powerlifting competition in Castle Hill.
Thanks to a couple of injuries and being a super busy human being, Deb had not yet competed this year. This competition was entered into a few weeks out, basically to shake some rust off and make sure Deb at least got on the platform in 2016.
It was definitely not Debs best ever showing, going 5/9 lifts and not hitting any PR’s. However we knew going in to the day that PR’s were very unlikely (due to the lack of preparation). Some of the missed attempts were surprising (Deb has hit a 52.5kg bench multiple times in training on competition equipment), but overall she made the best of the situation and kept her spirits up until the very last lift.
Despite not having a great day personally, Deb took out best overall female lifter at the competition as well as first place in the 52kg female category. Congratulations again Deb, looking forward to a great showing in 2017!
Deb’s lifts on the day:
Squat: 107.5kg / 112.5kg / 117.5kg x
Bench: 50kg / 52.5kg x / pass
Deadlift: 120kg / 127.5kg / 132.5kg x
Total: 290kg @ 51.5kg bodyweight
