Canadian Powerlifting Federation (CPF) Men’s Amateur Record Certificates

September 25, 2013 — 3 Comments

Remember that powerlifting competition I did way back in June?

Just to recap, I hit these numbers in the 90 Kg (198 lb) weight class:

  1. Squat: 235 Kg (518 lb)
  2. Bench Press: 170 Kg (374.8 lb)
  3. Deadlift: 255 Kg (562.2 lb)

TOTAL: 660 Kg (1455 lb)

Here's a video showing all the lifts:

Anyway, turns out I actually got the Men's Amateur record for the squat and overall total!

I found this out about a month afterwards when the record was posted on the spreadsheet available at CPF's website.

It looks like this, without the yellow highlighting or Chong Li picture:

Well, I seen a picture on Facebook of someone posting a shot of their record certificate they received a while back and thought to myself,

"I should get a record certificate..."

I did some research and found out that I had to submit an application form along with $10 for the certificate.

I mailed in the form along with a cheque a few weeks ago, and just received these in the mailbox:



Looks nice!

A lot better than having to refer to an Excel spreadsheet all the time.

Still, I think I'd rather have a sword. One day...

Ever since I started taking strength training seriously, I was bitten by the Iron Bug. Then it burrowed under my skin and laid eggs in my heart. Now those eggs are hatching and I... the feeling is indescribable.
