    PLSituation  You coach a team of 20 lifters, competing at the State Meet. There is no limit to how many lifters you can list on the official team roster because only the team's 10 best scores will make up the total team points. If the team roster has less than 10 lifters, a single lifter can score points twice by being in 2 divisions (Open and Masters or Full Power and Bench Only). If a team has 10 or more lifters, a single lifter can only score once. Mathematically, it would be detrimental to the team points to list more than your top 9 lifters, entered in two divisions. While beneficial to the team points, this would mean leaving over half of your athletes off of the official team roster. Official rosters will be listed on the event website, in the lifters guide and in the state meet program.Do you include all of your team members or only the top 9?NewLifterTipSquat Depth:You are low enough when the top surface of the legs at the hip joint are lower than the top of the knees. It has nothing to do with hamstrings being parallel to the ground or any other factor. The only thing that matters are the two points mentioned above. Many newer lifters think they are squatting deep enough when they are actually high.Agree or Disagree?Lara reflects on the life on friend and teammate Selena HesseJosh and Lara reflect on lessons they've learned over the years about balancing life and powerlifting and what is important to them

    Siraj Saeed:Owner of Truborn StrongTruborn Rookie Rumble Preview:Sunday, Jan 9 @ No Excuses Crossfit in Suwanee, GAQ&A: (listener submitted questions)Do you think lifters that aren’t elects or pro will get lost in the USAPL shuffle?New Georgia Meets:4/30/22 - USA Powerlifting Georgia Ladies of Iron - Lawrenceville, GA 5/21/22 - USA Powerlifting Savannah Showdown - Savannah, GA7/30/22 - USA Powerlifting Atlanta Open - Atlanta, GAPLSituation You are coaching a brand new lifter in their first meet. They are 8/8 on the day. You call 150 kg for their 3rd deadlift, which would be 5 kg under their training PR. The primary goal was to go 9/9 and have a great first meet experience. Looking at the scoreboard, if you bump up to 157.5 kg, that would be enough to earn the bronze medal out of 10 lifters in the weight class.Do you make a change or stay at 150 kg?NewLifterTip Yes, it's a new year but that "new year feel" will fade. The good news is every single day is a new day. Don't lose sight of that opportunity!Follow the Podcast on Facebook & Instagram at PLBalladsPodcast.
