    Really interesting viewing for this newbie. Thanks. Say, do you think you (both/either of you) could've achieved your PRs if they were the 2nd lift instead of the 3rd? Or do you absolutely need to do warm up/lift 1/lift 2/attempt PR? I don't know how these competitions work at all...sorry in advance if this is a silly question.

    I also have to get better at translating KGs to lbs/vice versa...I was like "391 pounds, WTH?" till I realized it was all in KGs....

    I was also amazed at how quickly one does the deadlift. Down, grab bar, lift; boom. I still have to position, ensure grip, check form--feet, back, elbows, etc etc. Obviously a work in progress. Thanks for posting!

    Thanks to both of you. I appreciate all that information, and responses to both my questions make total sense. I really don't know that much about how competitions work; I get it a bit more, and now I'm more curious and will do more research. Really, thanks a bunch.
