    RAW Power -- Strength Sports Contest Announcement !!!

    RAW POWER
    IML Strength Sports Strength Contest

    Welcome to the first Strength Sports contest on IML Forums.

    We are proud to announce that two sponsors have stepped up the plate to bring us one great contest, with two fortunate winners!

    Special thanks to:
    Purity Source Labs -- P.S.L for bringing $350 of there International EP line products!

    Legend Pharma -- Thanks to Anton Fire they will be putting up a prize for a winner as well!

    TWO winners, TWO sponsors, one contest!



    CONTEST
    The goal and outcome of this contest will be to demonstrate a dedication to strength sports and interest in furthering ones strength development to a new level. We will all support and coach each participant into increasing form and strength to further develop their power and increase their lift.

    Lifts will take place in two categories, one winner in each category.

    Bench Contest: The bench press contest will be to develop and increase the raw bench press over a period of time (six weeks). You would be AMAZED at what can change in six weeks with the right program and help. We want to see you develop your strength over a period of time and the individual with the most improvement will be our winner.

    Deadlift Contest: The deadlift contest will be similar to the bench contest. Over a period of time (six weeks) we will help you develop your deadlift, work the weakness, and the individual with the most progress will be our winner.

    This is a TRANSFORMATION contest. Not one of physique, but of strength. Don't get it wrong. This program and challenge can apply to anyone interested in PL or BB. Is having a bigger and stronger deadlift or bench going to make you smaller? No...

    PARTICIPATION

    Each participant will create a LOG in this section. That log will begin with pictures and videos of the lift in which you hope to transform. From there we will help you with your program (if needed) and critique you over the period of weeks. Individuals that show the proper dedication and effort will win.

    I am very excited to have this contest kick off, and very curious to see who has what it takes to see it through! It is easy to take some selfies and apply some instagram filters... it is another to put that weight in your hands...

    ASK YOURSELF? Do I have what it takes to improve? To swallow my pride, show my weaknesses and work on it? Do I have what it takes to improve myself? If so, start that log and lets embark on a journey together!

    Shouldn't be hard to judge maximum effort in videos. I will have numerous judges, some pro in my own social circle that will watch the videos.

    Kinda hard to fake a deadlift, and should be pretty noticeable if someone is faking effort and faking the amount of weight they use.

    However, I mean best we can hope to do with any contest is hope for some integrity and honesty.

    But over a 6 week time period and NUMEROUS videos maintaining a consistent lie should be pretty hard.

    I'm already running a westside log over on ASF. I think it will suffice.

    I've got chalk, a belt, and nose tork.... Just need some halo

    To further expand on your point. If you watch my video from tonight...




    You can clearly tell the amount of effort and body exertion this lift entailed.

    This contest will expect similar quality videos.

    Have to hand it to you this is very intriguing and a very good idea on your part. I will be following this for sure and if it was not for starting PT for my back I would be in for the bench contest.
    I have read and followed a lot of your posts and think you bring positive and fresh new ideas to IMF......

    Sincerely,

    I'm loving it! It's very difficult to put yourself out there to be judged and critiqued. Probably one of the reasons I have never competed. But increasing my raw DL has been one of the things I've been working very hard on over the last year.
    Right now I'm at a Bw of 216 and pulled a raw PR of 510 at that Bw a few weeks ago and I know I had more in me but I held back. I would like to break 600 by the end of the year. Id also like to add about 10 pounds of solid muscle.
    I'll put up my stats, pics and video when as soon as I can.
    Thanks for doing this. It is excellent way to bring attention to the true meaning of Strength training.

    I agree, effort cannot be faked. I think this is gives us an opportunity to discuss the difference between effort and intensity. Effort is hard to measure but as a strength athlete I have made up my own scale to measure effort. It's necessary for me when I'm logging my training session's to determine how hard I was working on a particular set or lift.
    Anyone else have a method they use?

    I think I'm going to. I just have to get my shit in order. I just DL'd on Mon so I'm probably not due to until Tuesday or Wednesday. It is suppose to be a deload week, but I'll see.
    I'm 6'3 and #216 Bw, so I would like to get some ideas from other taller lifters. I use a conventional style if DL as I never liked sumo. Not too mention I like to throw in some power cleans, squat cleans and my primary squat is the front squat so I feel this style translates better for those lifts.
    I am part body builder, part power lifter that is why I choose these lifts also.
    I use to be about 250 at my heaviest body weight but I had some health issues that took me out for a while. Since then my appetite has not been the same and the treatments I've undergone has effected me on many levels. I don't want to make this about that stuff but it is a big motivator for me. I wrote about it in my intro when I first joined the site.
    Very excited about it. I think it's very cool as I'm all about the training and less about the aesthetics, however, that is still important as I am still quite vein.

    We have a bodybuilder at our gym that does PL also and he is a monster, and stays lean. He can switch from PL and do a BB Competition prep and be stage ready quite easily.
