Congrats to Shorts
From his log:


Well after some much needed rest and recovery, plus a little video editing, I can finally post up about this weekend. I had an amazing time at the meet, I got to meet some really cool people and watch some awesome lifting. Here is how my day played out:

455 1st attempt - 3 whites
500 2nd attempt - 3 whites
525 3rd attempt - 3 whites
^may have left 5-10 on the table, but this is a +40 lb meet PR

295 1st attempt - 3 white lights
325 2nd attempt - 3 white lights
335 3rd attempt - 3 white lights
^+10 lb meet PR, it was all I had left. This will be a big focus in the upcoming training

550 1st attempt - 3 white lights
600 2nd attempt - 3 white lights
625 3rd attempt - 1 white, no lift
^All I had to do was push my hips through (see video), just a mental lapse. Still at +15 lb meet PR

Total: 1460

Took 1st place in my weight class. Went 8 for 9 and PR'd all my lifts. Can't do anything but be happy about that even with a mental lapse on 625.

Taking a couple days off to fully recover then will start back with a new plan to keep the weights moving upwards.
