Division: 198s/Novice/Raw(no knee wraps)
Summary: As you can tell I am not very strong. There were at least 50 lifters here. The meet went relatively fast. I won first place in the 198s novice raw division(probably only a handful in this division). As you will be able to see I was practically ATGing the squats out of fear of failing. Probably could have stayed up an inch and got that last squat. Bench I suck at hard. My singlet is very tight around the legs and ass and my ass moved a hair so I got a fail on the second one. That gassed me for the 3rd attempt. Deadlift I went 3 for 3. I had some trouble getting my body vertical but being that it is my strong point I still nailed them all. Everyone was very cool and I had a great time. I look forward to beating these numbers later this year.
Side note: Seen a lot of records broken which was awesome.
What I learned: Everyone is very cool and if you are going to go out and do your best it doesn't matter your numbers. Everyone is very supportive and if you are thinking about competing just do it. The judges in this federation were strict and I seen some people get robbed IMO so learn the judges of the federation. I saw a 625 raw dead stolen from the guy who one the 242s(I believe). Set up openers that you will nail(Thank you Rodja!) and have fun. Oh, and if you are unsure don't jump weight too much.
I would like to give an extra thanks to Rodja for all his help in this.
