Hi Titch. Welcome to Sugdenland. We've had a couple of agreements and a couple of disagreements over on MT, but I'm sure we'll agree on all things powerlifting!

Just had my last session before this weekend's comps. Went to Catts and raw benched three pairs with 150, so feel that I'm finally back to where I was last November before the injury. My training log's over on PLUK, that's why I'm not posting it here. With any luck I might be able to give marc a run for his money. Hope to see a few of you over the weekend.

Try going up to doubles with your planned opening weights a week before, then leave it. Also a good idea to have your last session at the same time and on the same day as the competition. So if you're lifting at noon on a Saturday, have your last workout at noon the Saturday before. Not a huge problem if you can't, but good rehearsal if you can.

To cut a long story short you should compete unless you are very highly strung. But firstly you need to build a foundation of strength and make sure you are doing the lifts technically correct. For many people the sugden website is a lifeline so stick with it because a lack of communication can let you down. Of course your first competition can be a little stressful and you could be telling yourself that I don't need this pressure on, but everyone in powerlifting is very supportive of each other.

ok I think thats as many Spandau Ballet gags as I can fit in one paragraph.

Definitely. There's Hadley any left. I'll get my coat...

So at Rhino's Jim told me to go max legal on bench, and I did, and everybody commented how solid and comfortable it looked - and, indeed it felt really natural. Then the following Wednesday I went index-on-rings on the "good" bar in the Sugden and felt kind of weak. So, suspicions brewed, I brought a tape measure today.

As we knew, the fat bars are narrow - 73cm ring to ring (should be 81). For me that means if I put the first joint of my thumb on the rings, I end up about right.

The "good" bars, otoh, are actually wide. I measured them at 86cm. That means that max legal is actually, for me, pretty much ring finger on the ring - you could gamble on ring finger outside, middle finger inside, but it'd be risky. For someone with smaller hands, like LGB, max legal is probably pinky to rings.

So now we know.

Just as well I do powerlifting, otherwise all this maximum width and index fingers, pinkies and thumbs to the ring stuff would have me really worried. I hope you keep your fingernails short.Happy
» How Much Upper Back Work Do You Do? (Go to post)29-06-2007 @ 22:20 
I do lots of upper back work to aid my bench. Number of reasons. The back muscles and rear delts play an important role in lowering the bar. Lat, trap and romboid work helps maintain body balance if you're doing a lot of bench and shoulder pressing. And rear delt work (facepulls, shoulder horn, inverted dumbell raises, etc) helps avoid rotator cuff problems by keeping the shoulder in balance.

And it helps me carry invisible tvs and carpets.Happy

I agree, Rick is on the ball.

We often forget how clever this man is - I mean, they did base Good Will Hunting on his story.

Ah... THAT'S why they shortened it to Will...

Cheers for the comments,lads. In fairness to BWLA, it's not a BWLA rule but an IPF one. BWLA has no choice but to apply it as a condition of its membership of the IPF. I, like most of you, obviously, thought we were only prevented from lifting against banned lifters until Rick directed me to 14.9 (earlier in the thread if you haven't seen it). So I can (theoretically) set a WDFPF record, as long as it's not done in an international event. Lunacy! Probably breaches Human Rights legislation, not that I can be arsed going down that road.

I'm gutted Jon. I can do both - IPFs in September and Drug Free in October (assuming everything goes ok and I get selected) but if I do that I won't be able to be involved in BWLA in any way until October 08. More chance of a medal drug free, and I get to represent Scotland for the first time in my life, but IPF is swimming with the big fishes and I've been with BWLA since '95. Just a shame the rules force me to make the decision. Can't see what the problem is if I'm not lifting against banned lifters tbh. Would understand it if we were professionals with contracts etc., but this is an amateur sport that costs us all money to compete in.

Yes, but only if you lifted in an international event (eg Europeans, Worlds, etc.) in another federation. Check web link from Rick's post.
» Clive Henry gets IPF Worlds Gold (Go to post)26-06-2007 @ 16:16 
s**t. So if I do the WDFPF Worlds I get a 12 month suspension from all BWLA events! Crazy. Big decision ahead...

Thanks for info Rick. I was looking in the wrong place. I can think of some lifters who have transgressed and got off with it (will name no names).
