Well, I did it. Made it through my first meet. Although it took almost 12 hours to get through 85 or so lifters, it was a good experience. Here is how I ended up.

Squat
275
345
395 PR

Bench Press
275
305
325

Dead Lift
375
405
425 PR

So I got a total of 1145 and a couple of PRs. The weights felt really light in each category. I'm sure I could gone heavier in squat and deads, but I'll save that for next time. I wish it was run a little better, but you can't have everything. A good day overall.

Here's the 305


And the squat....

great job, sir!

judging by the ease with which you benched 305, looks like 325 was playing it safe!

just curious, if you're willing to share, what did your pre-lift warm ups (resp/sets) look like?

Yeah, I was playing it safe. Being my first one, I wanted to nail all my lifts.

My pre lift warm ups were pretty light.
For squat I stretched a lot, then did 135 for 3, 225 for 3. Since my opener was so light, I just wanted to keep it similar to a regular workout. It was too easy, but now I know I can go higher on my first lift.

For Bench, pretty much the same. 135x3, 225 x 3 with strict form for each rep as though there was a judge watching me.

Same thing for DLs. My back was a little tight all week from softball, so I was worried about tweaking it, but the warm-ups of 135 and 225 loosened everything up. Again alot of stretching of the back and hammies.

I saw a lot of guys doing much more for warm-ups than I was, then they would bomb out on their first lift. I think they did too much.
(especially the older dudes)

Hope this helps

So many lift results are posted, but the warm ups are critical...

smart moves...looks like you got it dialed in!

Well, you beat my first meet total, and actually my 2nd meet total, so your obviously doing alot of things right Chris.

Congratz on such a huge accomplishment, and your right on all your weight selections, as your 1st meet is really for getting a feel of the process and getting numbers set. You will for sure build upon it!

Form really looked pretty darn good on the squat - much better than your regular training, so it looks like competing is in you for sure.

12 hours is quite the marathon as well - wow - and to nail your deadlifts is huge after such a long day. very proud of ya!

Thanks Jim. I think the prep, the crowds, and the adrenaline, really helped me focus on getting it right. I learned alot by watching the other lifters and seeing what they did right and what happened when they got a bad lift. It was nice to get the first one out of the way. I feel like I graduated from my basement.
