APF/AAPF Mammoth Open
Aberdeen, WA
12.04.10



Squat: 407.8, 424.3, 441.0 (41lb meet PR and 1lb all-time PR)

- I almost failed the opener because I was leaning too far forward, but I recovered and got the lift. After that, there were no problems and I went 3 for 3, going into the bench. I think I was good for a little more than 441 because 440 was my PR at the end of the base cycle of Smolov and I did the intense cycle after that, but I didn't want to gamble too much. The 441 puts me on the PowerliftingWatch.com raw rankings for the squat, along with my 535 deadlift from March.

Bench Press: 215.0, 231.5, 242.5 (17.5lb meet PR and 2.5lb all-time PR)

- All three attempts went well. Like the squats, it felt like I had more in me, but this was still a good performance and personal record.

Deadlift: 501.5, 540.1 (no lift), 540.1 (no lift)

- The deadlift was disappointing because I only got my opener and didn't get a PR. I haven't pulled a PR deadlift in training or competition since the full-power meet before this one, March 27th. At this meet, the plan was 500-520-540 going into it, but after my opener which flew up and was an easy lock-out, I figured that I would change the plan and go for the PR on my 2nd attempt instead of the 3rd. As you can see in the video, I was unsuccessful with the two attempts with 540. The 2nd attempt, first one with 540, was nearly finished, but I wasn't able to initiate the grind for the last few inches, like I did in previous meets since 2008, probably due to almost no deadlifts for the approximately three months of Smolov. I barely got the final attempt moving from the floor.

Results:
- 1185 Total (25lb PR)
- 1st Place in Open 165 Raw

- The 1185 still isn't enough for the PLWatch raw rankings for totals, but I'm very close, only about 20lbs away from making that list.

- I was also drug tested for the first time since I began competing in 2008. That was cool, but it should be more often if the fed claims to be drug-free.
