Here is the meet write up from my blog
I took this meet on short notice and not really in the condition to compete. I go today to find out why my knee sucks!
Once I decided that I was going to compete, I had to make a couple other decisions.
- I was only going to take 2 squat attempts, due to my knee
- Bench in a Titan shirt
- Deadlift was also only 2 attempts
- Not cut weight
- Make sure Jack smashes the shit out of his PRís
- Have a great time!
I achieved all of those goals!
I weighed in at 118.5 kg, which was by far the most I have ever competed at. Shannon, Odin, Jack, Aneta and I had a great meal after and then off to try to sleep!
Felt good morning of. I was in the first flight and Jack was in the third which worked out perfect. Warm ups went smooth for me and I was opening at 850ish. Shannon called my depth perfect and I smashed it!
Jumped to 948 and it was a bit harder and that was enough of a squat for me to stop there.
Jack went 3 for 3 again and finished with a 341 lbs squat
Bench felt awesome in the warm up, opener was an absolute smoke show but I had to pee really bad and ran to the bathroom. I made it! Which was great, but then my shirt set up was completely off and I couldnít get it fixed on the second and third, so I finished with my opener of 585
Jack went 2 for 3. Only missing his opener because he didnít wait for the rack command. He finished another PR of 275!
By the time deadlift rolled around I was starting to feel run down. I got my opener and then jumped to a PR. which as a terrible decision on my part haha. Failed it. So finished the day 4 for 7 and didnít get hurt! 1st in the 275 weight class and best overall lifter.
Jack put on a deadlift clinic. Going another 3 for 3 and getting a PR on the second and the third! His last pull was 430!!
A big thank you goes to my sponsors!
