2014 USPA National Competition in Las Vegas

This event took place weekend of July 18th 2014 in Las Vegas.  I was super stoked to have qualified to compete at this level.  The whole experience was not perfect or close to it for me.  My coach was not able to travel at the last minute so it was just my training partner and I.  We did, however, hook up with an excellent coach and fellow powerlifter named Matthew Barba from Brownsville TX.  I couldn’t have pulled through some of the lifts without his coaching.  Overall, I was not happy with my performance. My goal was qualify for Worlds but I was about 30# short. I’ll try again in September at the Capitol of Tx Open in Austin.  I did place 2nd and brought home a nice big silver medal, not bad for my 3rd meet 🙂 These were the only pics I took from the event. Unfortunately, I did not get any video or pics of my lifts 😦

It’s back to training, 6 weeks til the next meet!

Training videos to come…
