      Congrats Adam

  2. Going to catch up on logs this weekend.

    No threads. I'm 100% sold on how it was put together this time. Very easy to view and judge. Most people also post their lifts in their training logs, and get more feedback there. I'm certainly not against the idea. Power cleans as well. But I'm not including them this year.

    Why whoever could you mean?

    I know, please don't take me too seriously. That's just how I roll

    I'm not here to hold hands. If people want to participate. If they want to test themselves. The opportunity is here. If not, I don't care. I have no plans of internet domination here

    I like the standards set by rawpowerlifting because they break it down by each lift, and aren't set for geared lifters. If the IPL has similar standards that we can go with, I would do that. We're not pretending to be anything close to an officially sanctioned event. The IS meets are for fun, the rules are there only because people ask questions about what is allowed, and we came up with these answers. I think they are fair.
  8. I S P W L - Open Talk

    There is opportunity for almost everyone to compete/achieve. Either you are well into your training, in which case you've likely thought about, or have competed in a local meet already. Or you are new to lifting, in which case you can try out your 1RM in the IS meet. It covers everyone except those that train strictly towards sanctioned geared meets.
  9. I S P W L - Open Talk

    Berin has it right. The only 'gym lifts' will be ones that were made specifically for the IS meets. I now see a potential problem with allowing lifts from real, sanctioned meets. If they aren't raw meets, it wont be fair to those using the results from our own raw IS meet. So we should only allow outside entries (for the achievements) from officially raw events.
  10. I S P W L - Open Talk

    That's a fair suggestion. It would give people who plan their training around official meets a chance to get involved here.
  11. I S P W L - Open Talk

    Ah. Good point. Then yes, we should just use the raw standards. Even simpler - and better on the ego.
  12. I S P W L - Open Talk

    Hmmm? The chart from rawpowerlifting has much lower totals than the USAPL/IPF ones.
  13. I S P W L - Open Talk

    I really like this idea of using the raw totals and raw separate lifts under the USAPL/IPF standards. Keeps everything simple. Although it's a bit of a kick to the balls to find out I still don't classify as even class IV total (4kg short - but i do have a class III squat). But hey, this ain't supposed to be easy.
  14. I S P W L - Open Talk

    Any suggestions for how to set up the achievements section. I am set on only awarding achievements for lifts made during the ISPWL meets. I'm still unsure of what constitutes an achievement, and how they should be measured?
  15. I S P W L - Open Talk

    I don't know specifics, but i'm sure nothing kicks in unless you're over 40.
