The Singlet

31 Jul

Leave it to the Punkmaster to pick a sport with a not so fun uniform. The USAPL says you must wear a weightlifting or wrestling type one piece singlet. So in the years of this sport there still is only a couple of options for this uniform and let me tell you they have not advanced in style since the day they started. I will say that I appreciate the rules and will happily wear my ever so flattering “scuba suit”, I mean singlet but COME ON!!  The purpose of the singlet is to allow the judges to see your body during the lift. For example if you have a big baggy shirt on its hard to see the crease of your hip to make sure you go below parallel. At this point my suggestion would be “well cool let’s make it a 2 piece?” So that I don’t have to get completely undressed to go to the bathroom! AND when you are nervous you go to the bathroom A LOT! They also come in primary colors, hardly any patterns and most are made of spandex or polyester. Luckily mine is black which is a slimming color but I think I would like a pattern like zebra stripes? Jus kiddin. Its even worse for the guys, I feel bad they have to get into one. I know you are thinking it so I am just going to say it…… yes it is really hard not to look “there”. Because honestly its like a target! AH! Thats all I’m going to say about that.

So my plan is to get more women involved in Powerlifting so that maybe someone will design a better, more flattering uniform. If there was a Lulu singlet I would buy one in a heartbeat and I know I would look smokin hot in it!! Please Lulu make a singlet????

One last thought, there are things you should avoid when picking out your singlet. Spandex is not preferred. Stripes are not slimming, and definitely do not even if it’s the last thing on the planet, absolutely DO NOT WEAR A WHITE SINGLET!

Field Trip to the Fitness Expo

20 Jan

This weekend is the LA Fitness Expo and some of us at Orange Coast Crossfit are headed there on Sunday. Bob Takano is giving an Olympic Lifting Demo with some top lifters at 10:15 on Sunday that we are going to sit in on. Then we are going to check out the booths and get lunch. We will probably head back later in the day.

We are meeting at the gym on Sunday at 8:30am and carpooling up to the show. If you are interested or have questions feel free to comment or email me sheryl.condon@gmail.com .

Hope to see you there!
