Thanks tann means a lot to hear you say that.

Haha I'm not that good, and yep that was pretty much my plan.

Thanks mark, had to change around the squat opener out of fear though.

Thanks mike, you really helped me with my bench press!

3/31/12 USPF Charleston WV

Can't remember exact weights execpt the last ones, this is all in pounds.

407.5 PR

Felt very shaky and a little scared so went with a lower opener, also I think I had another 10-20 pounds in me.

Bench Press
303 PR
314 PR

Was a little shaky warming up but didn't change opener, on 314 form went right out the window.

550 PR
585 missed half way up

As the other warming up felt very heavy but once I got out there felt pretty good.

Notes: Ended with a 1271.5 total so I hit all 4 of my goals today,squat 4, bench 3, dead 550, and total at least 1200. Felt very sick to my stomach today but still went on and had a pretty good day, went 8/9 which is always good. If I gone right for the 585 I think I would of had it. The one I was really shocked with was bench, in training I had never benched over 300 even with TnG.

I will try to actually put some video up later, had a great time, wasn't 100% thrilled with the meet director, and can't wait to do it again!
