IDFPA 2012 Push Pull Champs
Iontas Centre Castleblayney, County Monaghan
This was my second time to enter a powerlifting competition.
Weighed in at 96.7kgs , so entered in the 100kg class.
Either 4 or 5 of us in that class.
Ill know when the results are posted online.

Disappointed with how the bench went.
Was looking to have a go at 140kg for my 3rd lift , was confident going in that 125kg and 135kg would be fine.
The bench on the day was a lot more narrow than I am used to and it threw me off a bit.
Should have considered this when deciding my 2nd lift.
Happy with the deadlift , have worked hard at this to get my numbers up, probably should have gone 210kg for 3rd lift .
I am still a long way off the standard for the day – so lots of room to improve.
I think for the next meet I will really focus on my squat and deadlift.
All in all had a great day. Well worth the trip.
The place where it was held was a really great spot with top notch facilities.
The world champs was held there in 2010
My wife and nephew made the 4hr round trip - was great to have them there
Things I learned form the meet
-while all 3 lifts are planned beforehand – this should not be set in stone. Circumstances can call for a change.
-leave emotions behind before making a decision on the next lift
-try watch the video of the previous lift back before making the final call on next lift.
-my wife knows more about deadlift form than I do

Thanks to all the MAB family for the well wishes and the support.
Special thanks to Steve for the deadlift program which I am convinced helped me reach the new PR.
Next meet will be the Single Lifts in Jan 2013
So time for the hard work to begin for that,
