I started weight training consistently in July 2015. In November I decided I wanted to get serious about training and was introduced to Powerlifting a competitive strength sport that consists of 3 lifts-the squat, the bench press, and the deadlift. After one week of training at the Strong Life Tampa Bay Facility I was thrown into my first powerlifting meet. The 2015 Tony Conyers Extravaganza.

Thankful for the experience, it was a wonderful meet.
2016 Tony Conyers Extravaganza| Tampa Bay Convention Center
165 lb weight class: Squat: 340 (missed last attempt), Bench 175 (missed last attempt), Deadlift 370 (missed last attempt), Total: 885. Overall I felt happy with my performance. Coming right off the training cycle from the Jenn we hit this last training cycle hard! I felt confident in my squat going in, a lift that I used to hesitate with. My bench has definitely hit a plateau. I’m SO close to breaking through 200lbs. I know I need to work on and improve my leg drive. My deadlift I also need to improve technique and get my but down. I feel strong in the lift and know that I can pull 400lbs. I’m coming for it. I’m looking forward to amping up my conditioning with the team and deciding which meet is next.
