IPA Iron House Powerlifting Classic
2005 - Pictures

By Gary F. Zeolla

I competed in the Iron House Powerlifting Classic - 2005. Below are pictures of yours truly taken by the contest photographer. Click on any picture for a larger image. Pictures of other lifters at the contest are posted on the Web site for Iron House Gym.

I'm not sure which attempt this was, but it looks plenty deep to me.


Counting the weights on the bar, this looks to be my second attempt with 215. I got this lift.
But it looks like where I stalled on my third attempt with 225.

I really have a mean look on my face on this one!

My form here looks similar to my form on DLs in college (see Yours Truly Performing the Powerlifts).
I'm still driving backwards with my head.

Powerlifting and Back Pain

    The first book is geared towards the beginner to intermediate powerlifter. It presents sound training, competition, dietary, and supplement advice to aid the reader in starting and progressing in the sport of powerlifting. The second book details how I overcame years of crippling low back and was able to return to the sport of powerlifting.
