This past weekend AJ (19) and Avneet (17) Chhabra traveled to Fresno to compete in the Jr Men’s and Jr Women’s Raw divisions. Both lifters had a good day and set some personal records. Despite advice from the crowd to “look up,” 90 kg (198 lb) AJ posted the heaviest squat of the morning session with 210 kg (462 lb), and just missed the USPA Jr Men’s Raw American Record on his third attempt, 218 kg (480 pound). AJ set all of the Nevada State records and finished with a 147.5 kg (325 lb) bench, 240 kg (529 lb) deadlift giving him a 597 kg (1317 lb) total, the highest in the morning session.
Avneet also did well, squatting 90 kg (198 lb) for the heaviest squat in her class. She also pulled a PR deadlift, 107.5 kg (237 lb) at a body weight of just over 56 kg (125 lbs). The link is to download a video of AJ’s lifts, and below is some photographic of Avneet’s lifts.
