Quit training for the meet Hunter. You can go to the meet and have some fun doing it, but don't train for it. I think it pressures you up more than you need. Just hit the gym and do whatever you can and quit worrying about the numbers so much. 275 is only 25 lbs away from 300, get there a step at a time. And listen to Squat Man about doing some rep work.

Wraps
275x 1
275x 1
275x 1 ...I took vids if these, but what's the point of loading and posting them! Noting to see really, were really hard, and should have been easy! Even the 135 triples were tough, aka I SUCK!
*
Leg Press
350x 15
350x 15
350x 15 ...last set I was struggling to get 15 ! After squats, every set I did, I tried to convince myself I did enough to quit for the day!
*
Lying Leg Curls
55x 15
55x 15
55x 7 ...I totally died on the last set! It was mainly because of my head, but not sure my puny legs would have got all the reps anyway! But since my head was about to crack open and spill my brains on the floor I stopped!
*
Leg Extensions
100x 15 ...planned on 3 sets, yea that didn't happen! If I did those I wouldn't have done any calf work!
*
Standing Barbell Calf Raises
225x 15
225x 15 ...again wanted 3 sets of these, didn't happen! I had nothing left to give, barely could move much less walk or lift more!
*
Done! 1 hour, and I rushed, well for me I rushed! Basically I worked and I've got nothing else good to say! I SUCK and I'm tired of it! Plus I'm tired! Yes I'm pissed off and in a sh!tty mood! Tired of my puny ass weak pussy chicken fucking legs! Have a great day all!

When my heads bad I lift for crap or skip reps, sets, whole exercises! When my head gets real bad I can't eat, I get sick or lose my appetite completely! Steve and Brute were shocked that after the long meet I didn't eat dinner, no food during the meet either. Later that night I had pretzel bites at the theater, then a few snacks at the hotel, which I made myself eat along with a big shake that I almost didn't keep down! Add to this my knees acting up still, and all the time off that I lost before the meet, made me lose a lot of what I worked for. It's mentally frustrating to say the least. Not that anyone that loses strength from time off doesn't get bummed, but I feel like I have to work twice as hard to to what a normal guy can do, but I can only put in half the effort and work!
Thank you all for your suggestions and ideas along with your support. I'm planning on trying to do more reps on squats.
I won't stop training or trying to better myself, I'm just very frustrated and pissed off.

Believe me jay I know your frustrated, our situations are different. I can't even imagine what your going through. I think you rocked the house just by going to the meet. Just keep listening to your body and don't put so much pressure on yourself. Look how far you have come, just keep at it.

Thanks Lisa! Not trying to pressure myself, but I know what I have to do to get what I want, just can't seem to get the work done the way I want or need to!
