Congrats to Paradox


warmed up to about 200kg. Felt verrryy loose. I could hit depth with a plate. Which NEVER happens for me.

opener: 210kg
absolute smoke show

second 225kg
buried it, smoked it, easy as fuck

now, I was here to win, so I put 237.5kg as my third, to up my record by 7.5kg. This was a VERY conservative attempt. I killed it easily...but called on depth. The judging here was BEYOND strict. You had to be four inches deep to get anything passed. Whatever, I was still only 5kg off my PB with the 225 and I was 30kg up on my only competitor

warmed up to 120kg

opener: 127.5kg
fucking destroyed it. Red lights for ass up. Lol what???? There was no way. I didnt even use leg drive. Whatever again, i was here to win, so i took it again and let my legs dangle loose. Killed it. Went 137.5kg for a 300+ bench for the first time ever. Absolutely ate it for dinner. Wanted to go for 145 that day, but stupid first attempt fucked me. Lost a bit of a lead here as other guy benched 152 or something.

warmed up to 220kg in the back room

opener: 230kg
lolol joooooke. 245kg second for a 5kg meet PB. Also a joke and secured the win
for a third I had two options. Go for the total 105kg jr record or the deadlift and the total. So i did the latter and went 258kg. Absoltuely fucked killed it.

Overall, I think I could have gone 245, 145, 272.5, but instead I went 225, 137.5, 258. However, I added a national champ gold medal, a deadlift record and the total record to my squat record, so I guess I'm happy with it.

Thanks, everyone! And thanks to BtB for the recognition.

Video was taken of what I believe is most of the lifts. I really have no idea. Should get that once the rest of the Island lifters get back after the weekend.

I also got a whole bunch of pictures. I'm not sure if you guys can see this or not, but here's the album on FB. If you can't see them, I'll try uploading to picazo or whatever it's called:
