BIG IRON Christmas Challenge: Bench For Reps & Strict Curl Results

On December 9th, after the AAU Christmas Challenge Powerlifting Competition we hosted what we hope will become an annual event. The BIG IRON Powerlifting Bench Press for Reps and the BIG IRON Powerlifting Strict Curl Compeition. The event was held at the Bay State Athletic Club in Scituate, MA. Referees Mark Sieminski, Louie Vega, Eric Arnold and Dave Mansfield officiated the Bench Press and Louie Vega officiated the Strict Curl Competition.

Bench for reps (body weight for reps) in the light weight division was dominated by Brandon Chase out of New Hampshire with 30 reps. This was after Brandon had competed in the full power meet in the morning. There were 3 closely matched contestants in the middle weight division. 48 year old Brian Shea out of Club Ex in East Bridgewater took first place with 28 reps. Ray Martineau and Dave Sellars tied at 24 reps which forced a Bench Off. After 5 minutes rest Dave came back with 20 reps while Ray, suffering from a bad cold was still able to put up 15 reps.

In the Strict Curl heavy weights 66 year old Ray Cross and 24 year old Justin Sproul fought it out working up to 52.5 kg for Ray and 60 kg for Justin. In the middle weight division Ray Martineau and Dave Mansfield battled to failure with a 58 kg tie. In the light weight division Brandon Chase bested all comers at 68 kg with Mike Clark, Brandon’s training partner strict curling 48 kg. These events were a lot of fun with the competitors providing good natured commentary on the proceedings. Next year we will publicize the event more heavily and expect a much larger field of competitors.

BIG IRON AAU 5th Annual Christmas Challenge

The 5th annual Christmas Challenge was held on December 2nd in Scituate, Massachusetts. The competition was spirited and the energy in the room was fantastic as lifters from Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Hampshire and Rhode Island brought their best efforts to the platform. The Chase Powerlifting crew (Mac, Brandon and Mike) out of New Hampshire made a good showing, as usual. Jim Onderdonk brought 2 of his excellent young lifters, Al and Andre, up from New Jersey. Bay State Athletic was represented by young Nick Capodilupo. Centre City Gym, Brockton was represented by Craig Strohmeir and Adam Delancey with support from Sam Pagan and Eric Wright. Bob Buhlman and Steve Bergeron were excellent on the platform. Dennis Wall, who competed in October was back for more as the BIG IRON team cheered him on. Old Friend Darrel Calhoun was back for the deadlift competition as was 1st time competitor, M6, John Leahy. Joanne Shear was back on good form, breaking the American M5 squat record and Lindsay Johnstone won Female best Lifter. Steve Hoff, always very competitive, won Best Lifter honors. The spectators were treated to some fine lifting from Dave Rak, Marcus Laich and Conor Nordengren who barely missed locking out a 600# deadlift. Conor tells me it will go next time, and I have no doubt. Congratulations to all.

The Bay State Athletic Club platform crew was at their usual outstanding efficiency with Mike ably managing the crew. Many thanks to our officials Larry Larsen, Dan Driscoll, Louie Vega, and Justin Sproul for an outstanding job. Thanks to Bay State Athletic Club for hosting the event.
