Back to Back Meets and Answering a Question
 
Hey guys thanks for you support and encouragement the past few weeks. I like this board and as I said I'd come around for sure. I had no idea things would go so well for me at either competition, I really and very thankful.

Lastly someone asked why lifters point their hands out before Deads? I am only speaking for myself, but as I gained weight and size in the stomach I found that more often than not I was breathing into my chest and not into my stomach. Keeping my arms ups allowed me to pull more air in the way I felt was most beneficial for me. Hope this helps.:rockon:

Awesome numbers Brandon. Very impressive. Are you getting back in gear now?

Welcome to the forums, and you had one hell of a meet. I was wondering, how do you mentally prep your self before Squatting on meet day??

Great job at the meet Brandon.

impressive all around total. No weak lift, very good at all 3.

Great pulling. Didn't get to see your other lifts yet. Looking forward to a video.

Welcome to the forum BLilly, and great lifing indeed. I'm glad to see even more top-tier lifters joining, you'll find this place to be a lot better than BB.com.
You conducted back-to-back meets with a proficiency that I bet even Henry Thomason would admire.

That was a monster total you got over the weekend. Congrats, Brandon. Oh, and your beard deserves a congratulations too. :D

I was the one who asked the arms raised question. Thanks for the answer. I think you're different than most because you have a rationale for doing it. I get the impression that the majority of lifters do it because they see other guys do it, not knowing why, just following the herd, like most other aspects of their lives.

Congrats on the lifts. It was great to see you on the live stream

I am as impressed with your beard as I am with your lifting. Do you plan on starting a log of your training?
