Default RAMROD's 1st Meet of 2016 - My Best meet yet...

Finally got a Powerlifting Meet in. My Last meet was in Nov. 2013.It felt so good to get back up on the platform again. My Last Meet in 2013 I had a 425/315/475=1210. The 315 was a 4th attempt. I took almost a year off being lazy. Then decided to get back at it. Everything was going well till about 9 weeks ago. As I ended up with Hip Bursa in both hips. Tried take time off and heal, but it wasn't happening. 13 days ago I got a shot in my left hip, but didn't help too much. After the Shot the only thing I trained the last 2 weeks was Bench. Ended up not having really any hip pain at all for the Meet.

My Goal was to hit 1300 and I did it. Everything didn't go perfect and not what I had plan.. But it all came together at the end.

Watching some of the first lifters. We noticed Depth on Squats was all over the place. Guys who nailed depth got reds, but some others were cut short and whited. So I tried to bury all of mine and leave no questions. We got to Bench and the pause commands where long or they felt long.




SQUATS
425 - This was my previous Meet PR. It was cool having this has an Opener now. This was a smoke show. Sorry no Video.
465 - I have only hit this 3 times in the Gym and was a bit worried. Got up and wasn't an issue. Felt Great
480 - Went for Broke. I have attempted 475 twice in the Gym and failed twice. My 2nd attempt went so smooth. I wanted more then just a 10lb jump. Nailed it and seemed I had more. This lift put me 15lb ahead of my goal. I could have went for a 4th. But choose not too. 15lbs PR and a 55lb Meet PR

BENCH
300 - Smoke Show
320 - Grinder and my lower back cramped up bad. Took me a few seconds to even get off the pad. I had to take a knee for a bit. 5lb Meet PR
3rd Attempt - I Passed on due to my Back. I hit my goal and it was Grinder. I doubt I had anymore. So I think this was a smart move.

DEADLIFTS
490 - Easy
520 - Felt easy then 490. First time attempting this weight. 45lbs Meet PR
550 - Too big of a Jump, but was going for broke. Couldn't break the floor and I should have kept at it for a couple of sec. I think I missed my Q's and wasn't spreading the floor like I should have been. I wished I went 530 or 535. If I got one of those I would have gotten a 4th. Either way.. Next time I'm getting 550.




So I finished the day 7 out of 9
Totalled 1320lbs. 20lbs over my Goal and I added 110lbs to my total.

I won the 181 Open, 181 Sub-Masters and received Overall Best Male Lifter
All the Sub-Masters where State Records.

Congrats! You did good passing on the 4th squat, there is no reason to put your other lifts in jeopardy for an unnecessary 4th lift.

Thanks. I believe I left a bit of poundage up there. Now that I know 500lb Squats are coming soon and that 550 Deadlift is too... I can't wait to get back to training.
