    My quest for a World Record and the Title "Strongest old Dude on the Planet"

    I wasn't go to say anything about this to anyone or at least to very few people. You know, failing is no fun especially in front of everyone. But I figure why not, maybe it will keep me motivated. Last year when I posted about finally benching twice my weight (213lbs, benched 435lbs) Someone posted a link to the world records for my age an weight. (Masters III age 50-54, weight 199-220lbs.) The record is 420 raw (raw means no shirt with a leaf spring in it). At first I thought cool but didn't really think that was right or possible. So I've been researching the various power lifting organizations and turns out they are all about there are less. So I signed up for a competition June 4th. It's not a national or wold meet so I can't break the world but I can get the U.S. record. Been reading the rules and learned that just getting the weight up isn't suffecient it must be done clean an neat (hands even no shifting etc.) In other words you have to make it look easy and in control. Yesterday I had some guys help me and I wen through a routine just like a contest.

    first lift 405 - clean and easy
    second lif 420 - pretty easy - right and was a little lower than left don't know if it would have counted.

    third lift 420 - pretty easy concentrated on hand level. clean and neat.

    So here's the plan.
    june 4th get AFR usa record. currently 413.4lbs
    August - go to Europa get ISA world record 325 just for fun.

    September AFR world meet break the world record. 412.5. bench only. Some russian guy has 420 in the
    bench/squat/deadlift. That's what I want to beat.


    I'm also trying to figure out if I can get down to 198lbs and take those records as well.

    You're a bad man, Mike - I have complete confidence in you, and you should be confident as well.

    Be careful during the build-up - no injuries!

    The cool thing is that you know bloody well that you can do it.

    Just keep them lugnuts tight until the comp, and you're a cinch.

    And Mike?

    Fuck the Russian dude.

    Yea after an hour and 1/2 on bench and chest yesterday, real hard and heavy last night I woke up with a pain in my left shoulder and an ache in my left forearm like an 11 year old boy with growing pains. Went to the gym today though and everything feels fine. Overtraining and injury can be a problem because it's just so hard not go heavier and harder.

    Yea, that really motivates me because that is in my mind exactly how it should be. Current bench only is from Idaho which is ok, but yea beat the Russian. He just did last month too.

    Unfortuantely it looks like I only have a 2 year window to reign. Theres a guy in Switzerland who was born in 63, he's in the business and has gym there. Unless he looses a lot of strenght quick he will own it if he competes still in a few years. He holds all the records for 45-49, bench record 509 raw.

    450's my goal and 460 might be possible with proper training and technique (I have neither) but 506.....

    I got 445 a few weeks ago, it was ugly and wouldn't count in a meet but once i do it ugly I know I can eventually do it clean.

    Just so.

    Give yourself the goal of increasing your best by five pounds for the month.

    That'll work.

    Yeah to all of that, Mike, but you're aiming at it now.

    You weren't before - makes all the difference.

    It's gonna be a piece-of-cake, man.
