    Videos fromt he PL meet this weekend!Alot of fun!


    First meet i went to that wasnt tested and it was alot of fun!
    Got to meet Knox and Natedawg and we all had a good time!
    I hit all my lifts and could of gotten more on bench!Still learning
    Deadlifts and will move up quick on them(i hope)!Thanks for the advice
    i have gotten off of this board and when you see my videos let me
    know what i need to work on.
    I hit 525lbs on bench but it went up very slow
    then i hit 535lbs (after a hit of ammonia) easier &
    then I hit 550lbs on Bench real easy.

    The video below is of the 550lbs:

    then 575lbs & then I hit 596lbs on Deadlifts (never did that much before!).

    The video below is of the 595lbs:

    I ended up winning 2 medals a plaque & a trophy for BEST overall lifter
    plus $45 in Gift certificates!Not bad for never using illegal "supplements"!
    Next meet will be a tested meet next month & i should have a
    state record in benchpress.


    In the background you can see the B.S.CREW
    (the lifting crew We put together)who were there to
    help out and support and a couple even lifted in some events too!

    Awsome lifts man! They were even more impressive in person. I took home 2 medals, 2 plaques and $30 in certificates. Between the two of us we could really put the hurt on Red Lobster LoL!

    Good luck with your next meet and your attempt to break a record! It was great meeting the whole B.S. crew. take care.

    Congratulations!!! Awesome work! Your 550 on the bench looked sweet and it seems you definitely had more in the tank for 600! Good job on hitting 595 with your DL, especially for the fact that you're still learning them. Next time, put baby powder all along your legs where the bar would touch it and keep the bar closer to you (have someone put the baby powder on you or use the bottom of the powder bottle to rub it on, don't get any on your hands). I think you would have been able to pull it quicker and easier if you weren't trying to keep it from touching your legs. You'll get it down pat soon...you're definitely strong and have much more to look forward to!!!

    Yeah, don't change up anything before your next comp, don't want to get thrown off. Wait until you have a couple months between comps and then throw that stuff in there. The arch and bar placement will make a huge difference themselves, and turning the elbows in (as long as your medial head is strong enough) will make a huge difference. Good luck to you on your next comp, and feel free to ask me anything that you think I could help you with.

    Ouch on the deadlift. I think I got a hernia just watching that. You PL's must be a little hardcore. Awesome job.

    The alternating grip allows you to hold more weight.

    I would have to clean the sand out of my vagina before I even attempted 100lb deadlifts. The extent of my deadlift experience is picking up my shoes.

    I agree with Nate!I use to use straps all the time now i never use them on Deadlifts!
    When i did use them i would not alternate my grip but almost all lifting feds you cant
    use straps and once you get use to NOT using them your grip gets ALOT stronger.That is
    my opinion.

    You could catch up with me, besides strength all it takes is knowledge that you can do the weights you set out to do. You need 100% confidence, and you should have that with the weights you have been putting up.

    bro, all you have to do is read the rule that nasa has and will will see it clearly states no over the counter
    1ad or anything similar such as superdrol or max lmg. SO you are breaking nasa rules as well.... when ever your done.

    Well I tell you what that really is true!Cause I remember when i hit 400lbs on bench and thought
    that is as far as i will ever go and then hitting 450lbs and still thinking 500lbs NO WAY.........550lbs went up easy
    so now im set on 600lbs......plus if i start trying some new techniques that you have talked to me about maybe i
    will fly up faster.Thanks for your help NICK!

    I have used the rageX and the Metal shirt, I definately prefer the RageX, its a much faster shirt and I feel it gives better support throughout the entire range of motion. The RageX isn't that much more expensive unless you get a lot of customizations, its $70-75 for a single ply. The RageX is the shirt that everyone has been wearing when they hit big numbers (Kennelly, Wolfe, etc.). If you know someone who has a RageX that will fit you, you should try it out. The first time I put mine on I hit 800 off a 1 board.
