Until recently, I squatted with 8-year-old Adidas Sambas. Once I decided to compete in USAPL, I realized 1. I wouldn’t be allowed to bench on my toes and 2. I would need some actual shoes for squat. I was going back and forth between the Adipowers and Romaleos, but last month I decided to invest in the Adipowers.
Last month I found out that Dan Green’s Boss Barbell Club (BBBC) is located 10 minutes from my new house.
Until recently, I pulled sumo barefoot. Once I decided to compete, I realized I would need some actual shoes. I started off with a flat pair of converse which were alright, but last month I decided to invest in the SABO Deadlift shoes.
My first meet is mid-September. I’m gunning for a deadlift record in this meet – we’ll see what happens! Check back in September
Youtube and Instagram are full of videos showcasing the “what” –
lifters breaking records at meets – but few have shown the story of “how” and “why” the lifter set a record. I’m hoping to begin sharing the how/why story now.
