Only one week out from the SC State Meet!
Time to test openers, stretch and practice form and commands with light weight.
Entries closed 12/29/16. The final Meet Roster can be found at http://www.usaplsc.com/events.
We are getting entries into the computer and setting up lifter flights and platforms.
We have 85 lifters on the roster, 60% from SC, 30% from NC, 10% from VA, FL, PA and GA.
23 women and 39 lifters at 23 years old and younger.
Ages on the roster range from 13 to 73, 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.
First time lifters, please read my previous post on “New Lifter Competition Advice”.
Good luck to all lifters! Lift Strong!

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 powerlifting meet proceeds.
