RPS HeatWave
Powerlifting Meet
Merrick, NY

Cutting to 165 was a little shitty. I'm unsure of my starting bodyweight; it was probably 177-178. The total time spent in saunas was 100-105 minutes, not including breaks.

440 - Good Lift
475 - Good Lift (7lb meet PR)
No 3rd Attempt

^ Easy opener with minimal forward lean. The 475 wasn't the easiest squat ever, but not too much of a grinder. Decided to skip the third to ensure that I wasn't too drained before the bench and dead.

Bench Press:
280 - Good Lift (5lb meet PR)
290 - Good Lift (15lb meet PR)
300 - Good Lift (25lb meet PR)

^ None of these were too difficult. I was probably capable of 305-315, so that was cool. 300 is a milestone that I've been chasing for a while. I look forward to benching in November, the meet after this one.

540 - Good Lift
590 - Good Lift (6lb meet PR)
600 - No Lift

^ Smoked the opener, then was successful with 590. However, it was harder than I thought it would be. Also, a few seconds after I put the bar down, my glutes were bothering me a little. Pulled 600 just an inch or two off the floor, and that was it. I can almost always pull anything up to my knees, but not 600 today. Completely spent.

Total: 1365 (37lb PR)
Division: Open 165 Raw
Awards: 1st Place + Best Lifter
