NSPC Powerlifting Challenge

On Sunday 28 September I competed at the NSPC Raw Powerlifting Challenge. The aim of this competition was to build confidence for the major competition to come in December, that being the Oceania/Asia Championships. I weighed in at 50.75kg and finished with a 120kg squat (PB), 60kg bench press and a 120kg deadlift (PB), giving me a total of 300kg (PB). I finished in 1st place for the 52kg weight class and came away as the best female lifter of the competition (based on strength to weight ratio).

It was a great competition for me, not just because of where I placed and what I lifted, but also because I walked away feeling more confident with my lifting and energised for the next training cycle.

Below are the videos of my best lifts on the day (apologies for the blurriness).
