North Carolina State Championships!!

Last 2 weeks of 2023!!




1st 2 weeks of 2024





Mid Jan through January 28th 2024






State Championships were moved to be part of the American Challenge in May at Currituck HS to be part of the competition to determine the National Champion in each division.  The Fitness Warehouse Competition was a great way to not wait so long to compete that was not too far away.  I was fortunate to be able to stay at my wife's parents' home in Elizabeth City the night before so I could weigh in and eat etc.








Decided I needed to be able to prepare more after setting the state record for the Strict Curl.  There are many strong cats out there who are able to beat my curl once they enter my new 55-59 age group so I want to be at least competitive.  I didn't want to spend $1200 for an official strict curl set up plus I really didn't have room for one.  I decided to look for an old bench or something that I could use the bench pad part.  I found this sit up bench for just $29!
