Angie had a rough training cycle battling injuries but put together a great day at the Women’s ProAm. Se competed in the Raw 148 class, here’s how she did:
Opener: 175 – good lift, very fast
2nd Attempt: 195 – good lift, still fast
3rd Attempt: 215 – good lift, still fast! 5lbs PR
We had to go conservative on her squat because of how her hips were bothering her all training cycle. She squatted better at the meet than she has all cycle and all her lifts were very fast. She probably could’ve gone 195-215-230, but with her hips we erred on the side of caution and she still walked away with a PR.
Opener: 155 – good lift, 5lbs PR
2nd Attempt: 160 – miss, misgroved a bit
3rd Attempt: 160 – miss, out of gas
On bench we opened Angie with a PR, which she nailed. In training she we were thinking she would hit 160/165 at the meet but squats do take it out of you before you bench. A PR is always solid to walk away with!
Opener: 295 – good lift, fast and smooth
2nd Attempt: 320 – good lift, 5lbs PR
3rd Attempt: pass
On Deadlift the goal was to hit 320. So after her opener it was straight to the PR. She had to really gut this one out at the top, but she never stopped pulling and nailed it! It was awesome.
So, Angie went:
Squat: 215 PR
Bench: 155 PR
Deadlift: 320 PR
Total: 690 PR
A fantastic day for Angie. Her training partners are very proud of her!
So, again, completely terrible at updating this page. We are growing as a gym, we now have 3 disciplines of strength groups at DSBB:
We have 2 Powerlifting groups right now, 1 Strongman, and 1 Highland Games group. We have about 12 full time members right now with a couple students who are back and forth in town when they are co-oping. So, we’ve got a solid group. We have a couple of our raw lifters who are very close to raw Elite: Angie and Lou. I expect both of them to get their Elite Totals in the next year.
Kyle and Tim have their first Strongman show of the year coming up in March over in Georgia. Looking forward to seeing how they do. Angie is getting ready for the Women’s Pro-Am in April, we have a few guys planning to do the SPF meet in Arab, AL in April as well and the Highland Games season hasnt started yet.
As always, if you are interested in DSBB, shoot us an email and we will get back with you.
Lou competed at 198 at the SPF Alabama State Meet a couple weeks ago. He had a great day:
335 raw bench (no video yet)
Matt’s Meet (minus bench):
We will be putting together a tshirt order. More details coming in the next few days (pricing, design, etc)
If interested email us at email@example.com
Ok, again horrible at updating, but everyone in the gym is doing quite well. We alive a few different groups rolling right now. Several folks getting ready for a meet on 2 Feb. Tim and Kyle are training for a yet to be determined Strongman meet. Daniel is fat and purple. So, gym is clicking along well. Shoot us an email if you are interested in getting more information about the gym.
We had several guys compete at the SPF Record Breakers meet in Gatlinburg, TN on Saturday. Everyone had a great day and hit some PRs.
Here is how our guys faired:
Kyle (competed at 242, raw):
Squat: 500 – PR
Bench: 300 – PR
Deadlift: 500 – PR
Total: 1300 – PR
Glen (competed at 259, equipped):
Squat: 600 – PR
Bench: 440 – PR
Deadlft: 505 – PR
Total: 1545 – PR
Daniel (competed at 242, equipped):
Squat: 650 – PR
Deadlift: 630 – PR
Total: 1830 – PR
Lou competed at 198 in Squat only and squatted 500 raw.
Paul competed in bench only but did not have the day he wanted. He dropped some weight unnecessarily over the last few weeks and it cost him. He learned his lesson and is already looking at his next meet.
Congrats to the guys on their PRs. Now it’s time to get back to work. We have several lifters planning to compete at the SPF TN Sate meet on 2 Feb, including our first female lifter that will be giving a Raw Elite Total a run at her first meet and a teen lifter who is going to put up some very good numbers. Also, an old broken down lifter will be trying to hit some PRs too…
