10 Commandments of Powerlifting by #MarvinInspire

I started Powerlifting at the age of 21 and I was a late bloomer in the fitness arena. That period of time, I do not have a proper coach to guide this journey. A close friend of my, David Liaw was the person who introduces me to powerlifting. My source of learning was from Coach David, Uncle Google, and Sir. Youtube. I literally do not know anything about Powerlifting that I even Squat on the Smith Machine most of the time. It was indeed a bad option to stick to Smith Machine almost every workout. I had the assumption that it was just the same as free weight squat. I learn from my mistake and move forward.

Powerlifting

The Kuching Powerlifting Meet was held on the 6 January 2018.  I was inspired by David Liaw who is also my coach.  He was the first one to sign up. After a few weeks thinking about it, I also signed up for it to get the experience.  It was my very first Powerlifting Meet and I need to express my appreciation to David for programming my workout. He came in third in the competition and received the heaviest squat award with 200kg. Congratulation to you!

I managed to deliver a total of 8/9 lifting attempts. My top weight for my squat was 160kg, bench press was 110kg and the deadlift was 205kg.  The top weights gave me a total of 475kg. Overall, I am happy with my first official record.
