Thanks OR!

I ordered a singlet, and mailed the entry form and money.
Steve was gracious enough to let me hitch a ride with him and Erin. I know he will help me a ton at the meet too.
This was a very difficult decision to reach. Lifting at home, in my environment, dark, no people...I've been able to push through my pain and problems pretty well, or I think so. Doing this meet will be a big challenge! New place and different equipment not a huge deal, maybe? But I'm sure the bright lights will take a big toll on me and my photosensitivity. Then lifting around a bunch of people, not really my thing ! I like alone or small groups, I hate crowds. And then there's the little thing about doing all 3 lifts as heavy as possible in one day, lol. But even if I do horrible, at least I'll have tried to do my best. Kind of an expensive experiment, but at least I'll not have the regret of not even trying.
I asked JB for his advice on how to train as I don't have a long time. Here's his advice and what I'll be doing. I will probably start paused bench right away though, the other lifts I should be ok.

weeks 1-3 continue what you are doing

weeks 5-6 drop down to only 1 aux movement after Main lift
weeks 7-8 just main lifts no aux stuff.*
week 9 rest up
week 10- kick ass.*

As far as reps, keep doing what you are doing, week 6-7-8 we might should play around with some various pauses and stuff to get ready, but really your on the right track. Hope that helps.
Right now I weigh 201, so I'm going to lower my cals a little and try and compete in the 198lb class. I'm going to try and not stress this as I know my scale will probably not match theirs.
I believe I can get a 900 total unless I do horrible. I'm shooting for 1000 though, as I think I can get this on a good day. But we will see what happens!!!
