UCSD’s Powerlifters Get Rec’d in the 2015 Powerlifting Contest

Some of UCSD’s strongest students showed up in full force on Saturday for UC San Diego Recreation’s Powerlifting Contest. Powerlifting is a showcase of physical and mental strength. For this competition each lifter had three attempts at maximal weight on two different lifts: bench press and deadlift. The best lift in each discipline was recorded and then added together for each lifter’s total for the contest. The highest total won each weight class, calculated by the weight they lifted compared to their own body weight. Winner’s Included: MALE 123: David Nguyen 132: Benjamin Kim 148: Miguel Angel 165: Daniel Macks Female: 105: Tina Garcia OVERALL WINNER: Daniel Macks with a pound for pound ratio of 566.32!
