This video is in response to Tim Thebodeau’s “2021 USAPL Nationals is a Mess” video. In this video, I give my thoughts on the matter and say which of Tim’s points I agree with and which I disagree with. If you haven’t seen Tim’s video yet, then you can watch that one first using the link below.

And as I mention in the video, if you want to make a change, then email your State Chair and Athlete Reps. Social media will only take you so far.

My name is Arian Khamesi and I’m a Powerlifting Coach under Squats & Science. In addition, I’m involved in the sport of Powerlifting as an athlete, meet director, referee, scoring manager, committee member, and more. On this channel, I produce videos that are beneficial for Powerlifting athletes, coaches, meet directors, and referees. The videos will be most applicable to those involved in an International Powerlifting Federation (IPF) affiliate, like USA Powerlifting (USAPL). But many of the tips and tricks can also be used for those involved in other Powerlifting federations.
