PRE-MEET SESSION

After having a couple of days to think about things, I am feeling much better. Today's session went really well, as I had no Facet joint issues. This is a good sign it is stabilizing and has given me back my confidence to go for 365 squat for my opener, 405 for a 2nd, and hopefully 415-425 for a third. All the support I get from all of you guys has also gone a long way to restore my faith that I can do this no matter what. Out of the 3 lifts, the squat means the most to me, so it's fitting I give the lift my all in Vegas.

I got a bit emotional after my last bench today. I know I'm a big baby, but I can't help it. It seems to be that 20+ years of lifting has all come to this. The Crew told me that this meet is like going from amateur to the Big Leagues, and that has really struck a chord with me. My goal is simply to improve upon my lifts from my first meet last July and I have structured my lifts so that this will be accomplished in the most efficient way possible. I have done all I possibly can to prepare for this, so now it's time to shut up and lift my ass off.

I went for a professional massage today and boy do I ever feel great. She complimented me on my legs!! I also got my traditional pre-meet haircut. All that is left to do is to pack and watch some Football Sunday. I work Monday. Tuesday the plane departs at 9:00AM. I lift Thursday starting at 9:00AM. I am sure Collin will be filling you guys in on the results, hopefully as they happen. Focus from here until Thursday is to eat and rest.

One last thing - i have been successful in maintaining my weight at 228-230 lbs now for 3 weeks
