HI EVERYONE,
I KNOW THIS IS VERY LATE NOTICE, BUT I NEED TO CHANGE THE QLD STATE TITLES TO SATURDAY MARCH 12TH, THIS IS DUE TO A NUMBER OF MATTERS RELATED TO THE RECENT FLOODS WE HAD HERE IN BRISBANE. I HOPE THIS DOESN'T CAUSE TOO MUCH DRAMA, ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE CONTACT ME qld@capopowerlifting.com.au
THANK YOU

Impossible to compete when you keep changing the dates mate, some of us work week ends

PTC
20-01-2011, 08:24 AM
This is the date I wanted as well, its perfect timing out from Nats, but in Vic we have the Pro Bench on this day

Hope everything is getting back to normal after the floods Jeff

Queenslanders, get behind Jeff, this date is spot on for those wanting to qualify AND do well at Nats

Lamy

Thanks for the support Markos! I think an extra week would help prep for the nats better.
@Skalatharx - most people work weekends mate, not just you, AND we all lift and compete. I've given you an extra week to arrange with your employer to have the weekend off, i'm sure that would be enough time.

yes but you have to understand Jeff Its not easy for every one to get leave, I work 12 hour shifts round the clock, can be either day or night with 4 people on each shift (8 every 24 hrs per site). Only 1 employee between our 2 work sites can have leave off at any given time otherwise we face a fine, we are just stretched at the moment. I applied for the leave in May when the 1st one was set, it was approved. I scraped the one in on for the other date but only just. For this one there is an employee on leave so no chance. Thats why I like to put leave in well in advance so I know I can have the time off.

I hope next year will be ok and the dates will be set in stone as I would realy like to compete.

dude i think moving the date due to matters in relation to the recent floods are way more important than you not being able to get the day off.

We where hit a hell of allot harder then fkn Brisbane here, and yes I agree, its just annoying that it was changed in may to start with. The second date that was organised was during the floods, I was keeping an eye on the dates. Hey its their decision obviously and im not the only one that isnt comming down.

How but you just but out, it doesnt concern you

Norse
20-01-2011, 11:21 AM
Skalatharx maybe look at the OPO mate, they have a 3 lift meet in June in Ballina

Lamy
20-01-2011, 11:26 AM
Hey Everyone,
Let's just be civil about all this, the date HAD to change due to unforseen circumstances, it's unfortunate it happened, but if if you can't compete in the states, then there will more comps later in the year for everyone to do.

Sticky
20-01-2011, 11:30 AM
Hope you faired ok with the floods man, west end looked pretty bad. I have slot of cleaning to do when i get home apparently.
The new date is great, I was hoping this would happen. When do enterys need to be in by? I have a few females that may compete.

I get back next week, so I'll pop down in a few weeks.
If you need a hand with anything just give me a yell, I'm always happy to help out.

Lamy
20-01-2011, 11:37 AM
Hey Mate, good to see you are back! Hope all is well with you, def drop in when you can, we start heavy bench again on Sat this weekend. Al's got a few surprises up his sleeve this year!

Sticky
20-01-2011, 11:47 AM
Woohoo, sounds like fun.
I benched over 1.5 x BW just before I left on holidays, so let's hope I can get it, and more in comp.
Can't wait to get back in the swing of things.
See you in 2-3 weeks :).

PTC
20-01-2011, 12:08 PM
Big Skal, this is a long shot, but if your doing the States to qualify for Nats, I'm open to having a Nats qualifier after all the States are done, giving lifters a second chance.

If this suits you, let me know and I'll organize dates around lifters.

I really dont like seeing anyone missing out. I know it means traveling to Vic, just a thought.

This goes for ANYONE who for whatever reason needs to qualify for Nats, raw or equipped

Norse
20-01-2011, 12:44 PM
That sounds like a good idea markos, I was probably going to miss out this year as well with capo, thats why I was looking at the OPO comps. Lets hope we can get the numbers to make this happen. Im sure Skal will be keen when he cools down lol

Sticky
04-02-2011, 11:50 AM
Normally their enterys close 2 or so weeks before the comp, but lamy hasn't stated when they close so you may be able to just rock up on the day. You need a soft suit.

I'll be there, but with next to no training :D

I'll be in Brisbane over the weekend doing tafe. If I get a chance, I'll pop in and say g'day.

Lamy
04-02-2011, 03:17 PM

Hi Everyone,
Just wanted to let everyone know that you can weigh in 24hrs before the comp on Friday 11th, 11-12pm at Healthworks West End, 33 Vulture St, West End. Weigh In will also be at 9am before the comp, thanks.

diesel
02-03-2011, 12:25 PM
Jeff

Probably a simple question, but...how long would you expect the event to go for on Saturday based on the number of entries you have?

And it's an 11am start - right?

Thanks

Trev

Lamy
02-03-2011, 05:22 PM
Trev,
i would expect it to finish around 2pm, we will be running a pretty quick comp. And yes, start at 11.

Thanks again Jeff. I look forward to meeting you next week.

Lamy
03-03-2011, 08:26 AM
Mick,
Weigh Ins - 9-10am
Briefing - 10-10.15am
Warmups - 10.15am - 11am

trofius
03-03-2011, 08:36 AM
thanks,

I just wondering how much time after weigh in I have to inhale as much food as possible lol..

I might try and get to the friday weigh in, depending on when I get down from Rocky.

Lamy
03-03-2011, 11:35 AM
Mate if you weigh in at 9, lifting starts at 11, so 2 hours. What weight division are you trying to get into? Realistically if this is your first comp, i woudln't be too concerned about weight, just lift heavy!

trofius

Not tempted to have a little lift Scott, I know youre not 100%

Sticky
10-03-2011, 05:52 PM
Tempted? Defiantly! It's killing me that I can't enter this. That's why I wanna go down and help jeff out with what I can.

I'm just sticking with a bit of volume for a bit. I'll be fighting fit for nats, which since they have been moved, are defiantly back on the cards.

You'll find that everybody there is extremely helpful. Jeff/Frank/jase and the rest of the guys will be more than willing to help you out and give you advice/tips on the day and about your training.

Exactly right.
Everybody has put the hard yards in already, now you just have to put it together on the day.
Bonus is, you'll have a heap of like minded lifters to push you harder!

QLD STATES 2011:

This is a list of RED LIGHTERS you should be aware of.

I cant list them all here but its my intention to point out the MAIN red lighters.

SQUAT:
No 1 red lighter - DEPTH
No 2 Feet movement after the squat call is given
No 3 Not waiting for the judges call Squat or Rack
No 4 Double bouncing to get out of the hole
No 5 Failure to lock out at the top

BENCH:
No 1 Red lighter - Not waiting for the press call
No 2 Not waiting for the rack call
No 3 Lifting your bum off the bench
No 4 Uneven extension of the bar
No 5 Any downward movement during the upward press
No 6 Contacting the bench with shoes or lifting feet from the floor

DEADLIFT:
No 1 Red lighter - Hitching or supporting the bar on the thighs
No 2 Failure to lock out at the top of the lift
No 3 Lowering the bar before the down call
No 4 Movement of the feet during the lift
No 5 Not controlling the bar with both hands on the way down

So thats the "BIG ONES" also remember you have 60 seconds to commence your lift once the "BARS LOADED" call is made you also have one minute to enter your next lift with the Records Keeper.

GOOD LIFTING any questions i can help with email me.

180sx kid
11-03-2011, 11:36 AM
good luck guys. Im not going to be coming to spectate now. Im a little sore post op and best I keep my leg elevated. Hope everyone breaks some PBS and ill see those who qualify at nats.

Smash some PBs!

Sticky
12-03-2011, 03:08 PM
Was a great day of lifting.
2 absolute standout lifters
-Warick (missed last name) 335kg squat, 215kg bench (which he unracked himself) 350kg deadlift.
Brad?ben?dan? Can't remember his name, will have to wait for the results, but he hit 9/9 with a 280kg deadlift at 85kg. Top class.

Also I had my first female client step out. She went 70/70/120. Missed her ATG 80kg squat and missed her 4th attempt deadlift of 125kg due to 1 hitch. The squat is her weakest, we will try and get it up to 90+ in the coming months. She is 43yo and weighs all of 58kg lol. Top work.

It was also great to catch up with mikeW, trofius, trev, lozzo, Dan and ben from the forum. I'm pretty sure they all had a ball..... Well I know lozzo did, he pulled 220kg which was a 17.5kg PB lol, nice work man.

trofius
12-03-2011, 03:46 PM
Yep great daybit dissapointing for me but still good fun and great to watch. Lozzo could have gone another 10kg, he made it look easy!

Thanks for the lift offs sticky.

12-03-2011, 08:04 PM
Great lifting everyone! Even my 5YO son loved it!! Warwick was a stand out, I've never seen those sorts of lifts before and it was something to behold.

Annie, if you're posting here, well done on your first comp and awesome deadlifting! There was a fair bit of talent in the female lifters, in more ways than one...

Can't wait to get amongst it myself next time.

Cheers,
Mike

Have to agree with mike the female lifters were impressive, what did Kat do was it 135kg @59kg BW, deadlift, very impressive.

Sticky
12-03-2011, 08:17 PM
Yeah man, 135kg. As soon as she brings her bench up, she will be unstoppable!
275 @ 59 is a great result!

diesel
13-03-2011, 08:38 AM
Yeah - Thanks to Jeff, Sticky, Frank and all the others helping on the day.

I bombed out on the squats due to depth, which was gutting, but got back into it and put up a bench and a dead that I was aiming for.

It was a great environment and I'm looking forward to the next one.
