A lot has been going on in the world of powerlifting in the Verde Valley.

Bianca Luedeker, a Rec-N-Cru member, squats 70 kilos during a meet with the 100% RAW Powerlifting Federation Saturday, April 6 at the Cottonwood Recreation Center. The Rec-N-Cru powerlifting club of Cottonwood hosted the 100 Percent Raw Powerlifting Federation Southwest Regional Meet on April 6 and 7 at the Cottonwood Recreation Center. While only eight lifters from the Verde Valley competed, 135 total lifters, from California, Colorado, New Mexico and all around the state of Arizona, showed their strength at the meet. That number was up from the 112 lifters at last year’s meet.

Adam Greeley, a Rec-N-Cru member, does a 510 pound deadlift during the a meet with the 100% RAW Powerlifting Federation Saturday, April 6 at the Cottonwood Recreation Center.Saturday, coined “Monster Women Day,” was dedicated to the women lifters.

Jeremy Selting, a Rec-N-Cru member and Iraq War Veteran, opens with a 420-pound squat a meet with the 100% RAW Powerlifting Federation Saturday, April 6 at the Cottonwood Recreation Center.“These women are sweet, small women, but when they get on the platform, I swear Godzilla comes out,” said Tim McKeever, the leader of Rec-N-Cru and co-founder of the event. “You’ll see these big guys sitting in the bleachers and see how amazed they are about how strong these pretty and petite women are. And I say, ‘Why are you surprised?’”

Powerlifting is a strength sport that consists of three events: the squat, the bench press, and the deadlift. Powerlifters of all ages compete at meets based on weight class. They combine the number of pounds they “maxed” at for the three different lifts into their total score. Lifters participating in the meet can compete in the combined powerlifting event or compete in each lift individually. Along with the squat, bench press and deadlift, the standing curl was another lift open to competition.
