Final Days to AAPF Illinois

Final Days to AAPF Illinois

Mar 18, 2013

It looks like fellow athlete Matt Heck and I will be competing at the APF/AAPF Illinois State Powerlifting Championships this weekend (March 23/24, 2013 – roster at the end of this article).  We will be live-broadcasting, so watch us on LIVE!  This will be my first equipped meet in preparation for AAPF Nationals at the end of April, 2013.

Saturday, March 23, 2013: 9am Bench Only and 11am Raw Powerlifting

Sunday, March 24, 2013: 9am Full Equipped Powerlifting

Final openers are finished – Tuesday will be a light flushing and then staying ready!



– 8:15 a.m. – Mandatory Rules Meeting for Bench only lifters

– 9:00 a.m. – All Bench only lifters – Awards ceremony for Bench only lifters to immediately follow

– 11:00 a.m. – Mandatory Rules Meeting for Full Powerlifters

~11:30 a.m. – Full Powerlifting will begin with squat – time is approximate, will depend on how long the bench only takes, 

                        ***Bench only lifters–expect to start on time promptly at 9:00 a.m.  Full powerlifters likely will not need to arrive until 11:00 a.m. or a little before.

**NOTE–Due to the large number of lifters, we will be running TWO platforms for the full power on Saturday.  Make sure when you check your name in the flights, you note which platform you will be competing on.  We will do our best to label the two platforms so that there is no confusion.



– 8:15 a.m. – Mandatory Rules Meeting for all lifters

– 9:00 a.m. – Full Powerlifting meet begins

***We will only be running one platform on Sunday
