Pardon the bewilderment on the first set. It literally felt so easy I thought I forgot to load the extra plate on. I guess that's a good thing?

Few things about tonight. The block pulls are DEFINITELY going to help me out, they were terrifyingly hard for 192.5kg lol

Also, we noticed that my right arm flexes a bit when I'm pulling. This hasn't happened before ever, and I don't want it to become a habit. I don't feel myself doing it. Does anyone have experience with this?

Nice work. My arms bend like that on sumo (one of my many problems with that way of pulling). I put it down to not enough arm tightness, lock those triceps tight. I also think it's to do with not using your upper back to pull the bar back. With sumo there is a tendency to lose the bar forwards at the knees as you are less stable. Tight upper back should keep it close. I'll leave you with this though, Jeremy Frey also has that problem a little in this video and it seems to get better as the weights get heavier:

Where are you located? I live in Calgary. The Secretary of the CPU (named Mike) lifts in the same gym I do and he invited me to a CPU meet that he said was going to be held this spring here in Calgary. I don't have any exact details yet tho. Where is the meet you are going to in 9 weeks?

Thanks, LtL. I'm going to really focus on getting my triceps engaged and my upper back tight. I don't really notice it on my 220kg or 240kg attempts at the meet, so either it's entirely new, or, like you said, it gets better as the weight gets heavier.

Thanks for the Frey video.

Charlottetown, PEI. Mike Armstrong? I wonder what meet he's talking about.

The meet I'm doing is the CPU Nationals in BC.
