Bay Strength had a great showing at the 2017 Spring Starting Strength Challenge! This is the first time this meet was sanctioned by the US Strengthlifting Federation, and lifters that competed in this meet can qualify to compete in a National level meet. The contested lifts were the Squat, Press and Deadlift.
Below: Katy sets up to press her successful third attempt, with 108 on the bar.
Val won the female masters division, and one of the coveted dinosaurs!
Patricia set PRs on her squat and deadlift, squatting two plates and deadlifting three plates, while competing in the under 60kg weight class.
Heather set a 50 pound meet PR on her deadlift.
Katy set PRs on every lift and made all her attempts, on her first meet.
Will squatted three plates for the first time. He is still on his linear progression.
Julie placed third in her class and division at her first meet.
Katherine set meet PRs in every lift, plus a whopping 13 pound press PR from her last Starting Strength Challenge.
Kili competed while sick and under the pressure of starting a new business. Despite that, she managed to press 100 pounds.
Richie, our youngest lifter (16 years old), had a great first meet and is excited to compete again in October. He hit PRs on every lift.
