CREW BENCH

The guys have convinced me to lift in the Fed's upcoming meet early May. It is only 6 weeks out. I am going to lift of course, but with no expectations. I am just going to go and have fun with the sport I love to death and gain some more invaluable experience.

With that said, I was going into today's session with all intentions to lift light. However, I have discovered it is impossible to do so when in the vicinity of a Powerlifting Crew. Even tho this is definitely not what the Doc's prescribed, I am quickly getting the feeling they were very conservative and likely over-cautious. They did tell me that my eyes were normal (well, my normal anyway) at the last checkup and they have been just fine since. So, I am going to start prepping for my meet and just do the best I can. All the weights will still be lighter than I was previously doing before my back rehab and eye surgery.

Triple was sloppy, but single was awesome. Everything felt heavy as fuck, but the good thing is is that I didn't think about that at all. Doing so used to be a problem for me.
