Results at my first PL meet
anyone who has been following my log knows i have been training to compete at my first PL meet yesterday so i figured i would let you boys know how i did and what i thought.
first off i competed in the 165lb open class against 3 other competitors. 3 of us doing a full meet with one guy just doing push/pull.
first lift was squats
1st place was 350
2nd place was 335 (this was my lift)
3rd place was 265
second lift was bench
1st place was 275 (this was my lift)
2nd place was 270
3rd place was 250
4th place was 225
last lift was deads
1st place was 435 (this was my lift)
2nd place was 430
3rd place was 350
4th place was 315
i took first place in the overall with a lift total of 1045. it felt great to actually compete against other people and come out on top. i am a extreme competitor and really don't like to do things unless i can win and with only six months to really train and get ready for this and cutting close to 30lbs last month to make this weight i am extremely happy with my results.
this was a long and exhausting day. it was about 5 hrs from the time i did my first lift in squat till the time i did my last lift in the deads which was what i was.......DEAD!! i had managed to strain just about every muscle in my entire body going for the win in the deadlift. all in all i had a great time and probably will compete again but right now i'm going to switch my mind set to bodybuilding and competing in april in ohio. that is where my heart truly lies and all this heavy lifting has truly added some size on my frame this year and i can't way to see the results.
