    My goals: 1700 at 198 or 1800 at 220. In both instances, it's to get my squat to at least 661 and with 700 the goal.
    What does height have to do with proportion? Long legs and short torso. Not bad for squat but not advantageous.

    You may not have the greatest leverage for it, but you're still only 5'9". If you were 6'6", then you'd have a point. I'm roughly the same height as you. A long torso makes it harder to squat than a short torso as it turns into a good morning quickly.

  4. Compete in my first meet
    Go 9 for 9
    Total at least 1000 lbs

  5. I agree, but that's not what I was talking about. And a longer torso will actually have to lean over more than a long torso to maintain proper form at the bottom of the rep. Not sure what you mean by a longer torso GMing more. Long femurs push the hips back more and the shorter torso has to lean further forward to keep the bar in the right spot. A long torso in retrospect is easier to keep upright.

    Then what's your point? Unless you have 36" legs, I don't see what the issue is.

  7. My point is that a long leg, short torso build is disadvantageous to a squat.

    And my legs are 36.5-37" from bottom of my feet to the bottom margin of the coxal joint. Not sure where you want that leg measurement from...

    Please also see the rest of my posted above.

    If you want to continue this discussion by all means shoot me a PM, but I think we ought to at least keep it on track instead of trying to pick apart each others posts.

  8. turn 40, done in feb

    compete at an AAU meet. break nebraska state record for squat, deadlift, and total at 181.

    once the above is done, eat my way back up to 198 and break the state record for squats and deads.

    place top 3 overall at a highland games event. take first in weight over bar and hammer events.
    you can call me "ozzie" for short.

    Thats for 308 weight class.... Ive never competed. But that doesn't seem very impressive at that BW weight . Id imagine guys that big should have around 600lb squat/deads, 400 bench.

    My goal is to compete in my first meet. Love this sport, and the feeling of getting strong(er).

    Which is why I fully intend to replace the numbers in the books with mine.

  17. YOUR 2014 Powerlifting Meet Goals


    Yea i know.... I was just wondering if my expectations of strength vs weight class was a little high.

    Ive never competed, and i have no room to talk. I weigh 250. Bench 250, Sq 375, DL 415. I feel i should be alot stronger than i am. Especially feel my bench should be higher, thats my worst lift.

  18. But none the less i still love lifting, and love getting stonger.

  19. Compete in my first meet, and get at least:

    425 Squat
    500 DL
    275 Bench

    1200 total @ 198
    任重道远

    I wonder if you are making the same mistake most people make when thinking of powerlifters. That the only ones that lift are the worlds best.

    Check this out
    http://www.powerliftingwatch.com/node/1793

    It shows 6 classes of standards. Most people just think of masters and elites. Those IMO are the best in the state at least if not several states. Some states, a class ii total will take records. Thats why its only a state record. Heck, I won my weight class in the open with a class 3 total at my first meet years ago.

    I know me and swanson are looking at AAU records too. Thats the amateur athletic union. Not professional, but amateur. If you look at other organizations you may see higher or lower records for the same state. Different orgs, different rules, for different lifters. Thats how the game is played.
    you can call me "ozzie" for short.

  21. ^^^^^ AAU is a tested fed as well. Look at the numbers for USPA (untested) and you'll see some differences. Of course there will be people who skirt the rules in Feds like AAU or USAPL, but that happens at much bigger meets (worlds) vs the state-level competitions.
    Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.

  22. Total 1500 or more at UPA nationals (242 Raw w/wraps, Open, AD). Other than that I'd like to try and hit maybe 2-3 other PL meets and a few strongman shows (possibly qualify for NAS nationals). Also would like to see 650 on squat/dead by this time next year, a 350+ bench, and a 300+ strict overhead.

  23. To not embarrass myself at WPA worlds

  24. Well after my first meet... I can say this.
    Goals for 2014.

    Bench 350
    Dead somewhere between 650-700 (aka as close to 700 as I can get)
    Squat something reasonable, more than I can now, and have a better squat overall (form)
    Grow into a lean 198 before I go the rest of the way to 220.
    Do at least 1 meet.

  25. Goal for 2014 is still to compete at 165 raw (with wraps) and hit 600/405/500+ and to compete at uspa nationals and ipl worlds
