January 7th, Upper Palmetto YMCA, 857 Promenade Walk, Fort Mill, SC 29708
6 weeks out from the SC State Meet!
Still time for strength training and increasing intensity (lower reps/heavy weight) up to the meet date.
The updated Meet Roster and Entry Forms can be found at http://www.usaplsc.com/events.
There will be two platforms and we are limiting the roster to a tentative 80 lifters. Entry form cut off on December 27.
We have 55 lifters on the roster, 35 from SC, 15 from NC, 2 each from Florida and Virginia and 1 from Georgia. Also 13 women and 23 lifters at 23 years old and younger.
Ages on the roster range from 13 to 64, proving that powerlifting is a lifetime sport!
Due to a change in our USAPL National rules, American Records can only be set at State, Regional, National and IPF meets.
There is still time to set up a training cycle and beat your own PRs on the platform!
As always these meets rely on our volunteers, particularly spotters and loaders who are fundamental to a successful meet. If you are not lifting, or are looking to get into powerlifting please volunteer as a spotter/loader. It is tough work but rewarding in terms of meeting lifters, watching form and for new lifters, learning the referees commands and how a powerlfting meet proceeds.
