6C Wednesday, Dec. 8, 2010 Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Brad Loomis achieved a 400-pound squat at the APA West Coast Regional Power Lifting Champi- onships in Sacramento, Local lifters compete well More than 60 athletes and their families filled the new- ly renovated Body Tribe Fit- ness Nov. 20, for the APA West Coast Regional Power Lifting Championships in downtown Sacramento. Three flights of power lifters took 12-1/2 hours to complete a meet filled with state, American and world records. Four local lifters braved the elements to compete in the Wdt Coast Regionals. The falling snow could not stop Andrea Murana, Cindy Wood, Jamie Loomis and her husband Brad Loomis from qualifying for the APA World Championships at this re- gional event. Murana would compete in the Masters (age 40 - 49) 114- pound weight class. She picked up the "iron bug" when she competed in last month's "Billy Funk Memor- ial" Powerlifting Champi- onhip. In her sophomore meet, she would improve all her lifts with a squat of 115 pounds, bench press of 85 pounds and a dead lift of 185 pounds. Her total -- 385 pounds -- was 70 pounds heavier than her total last month and was good for first- place in her class. Cindy Wood won the fe- male Masters (lifters over age 35) Overall Best lifter last month and was looking to do it again at the regionals. Wood started off hot: She would go three-for-three on her squat attempts of 175 pounds, 185 pounds and a personal best 195 pounds. However, a foot cramp threw her off on her last bench press attempt and she could not complete the event. Jamie Loomis was looking to finally break the 500- pound total mark at this meet. A veteran power lifter, She has many class wins un- der her weight belt; but, until this meet, she had yet to break the quarter-ton mark. Usually a slow starter in the squat, she finished with a personal best and got three whites on a textbook squat of 165 pounds. A 110-pound bench press was the best she could do in the most difficult lift of the competition. She tied her personal best dead lift of 225 pounds on her second attempt, but could not quite finish off 240 pounds on her third and final attempt. It did not matter though as she totaled exactly 500 pounds to win the 181- to 198- pound sub-master (age 35 - 39) class. Pro bodybuilder Brad Loomis was eager to compete in power lifting after wear- ing the promoters' hat at last month's event in Portola. He would break two California state records in the 165- to 181-pound sub masters class. Finally achieving a goal he set four years ago, he was successful with a 400-pound squat. The lift would exceed the California state record, for his class by 25 pounds. The lackluster bug bit him in the bench press competi- tion as 285 pounds was the best he oould do on the day. He finished strong with an- other California state record: 455 pounds in the dead lift. The 181-pound sub-master class was stacked with four tough competitors. Loomis had the best total and took home first place with a 1,140- pound total. Next week three more local power lifters will be featured as power lifting continues with the WABDL World Championships in Las Vegas, Nev. mll00rN 00JlOlrf m Imw im JOHN DEEI II II III II IIIIIIIIII I I [ Andrea Murana is successful at deadlifting 185 pounds.
