A nod to Donnie Thompson and positive powerlifting Monday...

Not a great picture, but I like this shot. I was wrapping my knees right before I hit my 625x2 buffalo bar PR. There is always an incredible mix of sheer terror, high emotion and uncontrollable rage. I need the right song. While wrapping I talk to myself, saying the same thing over and over again: "Trust your form, trust your form. Ignore how heavy it feels."

2 weeks later I went on to hit an easy 645 buffalo bar single. This put my approximate straight bar squat close to 700. (The buffalo bar leans me over some) I tried to test this at the UPA Battle on the Mississippi but fate wasn't with me that day.

It still was an amazing year. I approached 1950 raw at the age of 46. Though I will never reproduce this run, it was the best 4 months of my training life and I appreciate every moment of it. I achieved things I never thought possible. It changed me forever.
