Congrats on the progress Mike.

On the flip side, I missed all three third attempts and I am flat out emabarrassed by my third squat attempt. I honestly don't know what happened. I just lost my mind, dropped like a stone, lost my air and had no chance after all that idiocy.

Similar thing happened on bench third. Just lost tightness and got no pop off my chest.
Sorry to hear that. Know how frustrating it can be.

However, that's why meets are a hell of a lot different than lifting in your garage!
Truth. Sometimes that single attempt isn't going to fall our way.

Stay strong though Mike and enjoy the process. That's the key to all good things.

I'm damn proud of you for how hard you have worked this year. The strength will keep coming.
