Default My First Meet

Saturday was my first meet.

it was the IDFPA 2012 Single Lifts

entered all three events

weighed in at 96.4kgs
so well under for the 100kg class


bit of a mixed day.

Squat

did the following
140kg - good
155kg - good
165kg - fail

disappointed i didnt get the 165kg , had done 160kg before as in my log , in hindsight should have lifted the 160kg for my third attempt

Bench

did the following
120kg - good
130kg - fail , moved my head on the bench
132.5kg - fail

what should have been my best event ended up my worst, the head movement really played on my mind going into the third lift and was concentrating so much on that i forgot about the rest of the lift. should have really got it out.

Deadlift

did the following
160kg - good
175kg - good
190kg - good , new PR

really happy with the PR , i knew oing in this was my weakest event so not too worried that i was a good bit behind the standard.
total was 465kg - lots of room to improve


have to say i really enjoyed the day. learned a huge amount and thats the main thing.

two big highlights for me was watching a 320kg deadlift from a guy in the 110kg class and a 15/16 yr old guy in the 65kg class squat double bodyweight.

First off, congratulations on your first meet! I'm sure it's an experience you will never forget.

I think you made a good decision. Someone, maybe Ltl, told me that I should make the last attempt a bit aggressive. 165 looked close. Maybe 1-2 pounds difference and you might have had it.

I went through the same head issues at my meet. I was warned on my first attempt and it messed up my next 2 attempts. 130 looked solid though.

Nice! Looked virtually effortless.

That's for the update and again congratulations.

Nice lifts markievicz. Great deadlift PR, shame about the bench but still a strong total for the first meet!

Well done again Al!

You were unlucky with the head movement on the bench, I could see that it was playing in your mind for the final lift.

You'll blast through it at the next event!

Your deadlift will certainly be higher at the next event. You made the 190kg look easy!

Bring on Killarney =)

Great job on your first meet.

So, the head movement came as you were lowering the wt???


I plan to compete for the first time this year. Looking back, what would you do differently, what did you do right?

Thanks for the info.

Just watched the video. Awesome work for your first meet. I really thought you had the last squat and bench, a little faster on both and you'd have finished. As for deadlifts: monster. LOADS more in the tank there.
