Big Day for Liz!
Liz Wahlman of TPS competed a few weeks ago at the USPA National Championships.
Here is her account of what happened:
On Saturday July 16, I competed in the US Powerlifting Associations’s Drug Tested Raw National Championships in Atlanta, Georgia.
This was my fourth powerlifting meet ever, and my first at the national level.
I was very excited to represent both Boston’s Strongest and Team Goggins Force.
I weighed in at 87 kilos (about 191 pounds) and lifted a total of 821.2 pounds (372.5 kilos).
That’s 40 pounds more than what I lifted at my last meet in March of this year.
I squatted 314.2 lbs./142.5 kgs.
benched 148.8 lbs./67.5 kgs.
and deadlifted 358.2 lbs./162.5 kgs.
I was really happy that I went 9 for 9 and hit meet PRs on all of my third attempts! I also took first place in my weight class.
The whole experience was amazing, and I met some truly awesome people.
The ladies I lifted with are some of the kindest and strongest people I’ve ever met, and I was continually amazed to see how much everyone supported each other in what is a very individual sport.
I’m honored to be part of a sport where women uplift and lift heavy, and I can’t wait to see where I go from here! I’m also extremely grateful to my coach, Steve Goggins, my training partner, Lodrina Cherne, and my gym, TPS Malden.
