2006 WA State PL Championships

Just a quick update on the 2006 USAPL's Washington State Powerlifting Championships that took place this last Saturday, the 25th, in Issaquah, Washington. My wife, Lea Hendrix, will be posting a link later this week that will contain a rather large (500+ photos) photo gallery of the event, so for those who are interested, stay tuned.
I had a pretty good meet, though I had one of my famous March colds on top of the usual March allergies. I competed as a SHW in the Masters III (50-54), weighing in at 285 lbs. I hit the goals I had set, the most important, of which, was totaling 1900 lbs for the first time and it took me 10 years of competing as a Masters lifter to do so at the tender age of 50. I set all new WA State USAPL MIII records at SHW and 3 American SHW records (old American records, all in lbs, were SQ 710, DL 688 and Total 1755). My lifts were ( = a missed attempt) as follows: SQ 675, 715, . BP 425, 450, 475. DL 650, 690, 710. Total 1900 lbs. I was very conservative in the bench press, due to still recovering from a shoulder injury sustained at the 2005 IPF Master Worlds in Africa last October.
My next meet will be in May at the 2006 USAPL Masters Nationals in Killeen, Texas, where I hope to push closer to the 2000 lb barrier. Much thanks to Bull Stewart and Dick Schuller for putting on a fun, though crowded (about 100 lifters!), meet. Also, much thanks to my sweet wife, Lea, for mingling and taking so many great photos during a very long meet when she was also under the weather.
