    Time to brag a little

    So my 16yo decided a couple weeks ago that he would be doing powerlifting this year as opposed to pole vaulting for track. Had 2 days of "practice" and today was his first meet ever. As a scrawny 16yo that we have been trying to put weight on, he is in the 145lb class at 142.xx. Had a total of 655 for the day.

    Bench PR at 145

    Squat at 235

    Deadlift at 235. Later pulled 275. Need to work on his DL sumo technique a little

    Wow pole vaulting seems a long way from power lifting, what made him do that transition?

    Most likely since the wife and I have both been in the gym a ton lately. Plus, he's wanting to pack on some weight for football season which is counter to pole vaulting

    As I said in the chat earlier super impressive for his age. Like father like son I guess.

    Good stuff Creek. One day, he'll out lift you and you will be just as proud then.

    That's awesome. Yeah, you have some tweaks to the sumo pulls. He turned it into a 2 part lift. Push those knees out and the hips don't rise up first and then back. Still, be proud of your kid. Most don't have the balls to step on a platform.
    There are 2 kinds of pain in life... The pain of discipline and the pain of regret. Your choice...

    He was happy with his numbers for it being his first time. He knows he needs some work on the sumo and I wish I had more time at home to work on it with him but I'm sure we can get him squared away in short order

    That's great for him! He should feel proud for a strong first showing.

    Don't let him quit pole vaulting though!!!

    It's one of the most athletic events you can do. I may be biased, I was a pole vaulter in high school.
    Do. Or do not. There is no try.
