  1. Great work at the Meet! Drive, Determination, PR and gave it all you got and left it on the platform...in front of a crowd.
    Lets Say you do everything that you are supposed to do. You check all the boxes. You Believe, you prepare, you work, you fight, and you know your why, and Life still catches you on your blindside..... Just remember Failure Is Never Final !!!!

So yea... what can you do lol. Itll be fun. hoping to get the numbers i want at that meet.
    Damn, dude, sounds like quite a challenge. I'm sure it'll be a weekend full of eating and stretching.

    Do you weigh in just once, or what's the deal there?

  3. not 100% Sure. Weighins are morning off. Hopefully I dont have to weigh in a 2nd time for the kings of bench part

  4. Oh I misunderstood and thought you were still competing over 2 days but in reverse order. I just reread. It's even crazier huh? Haha. Good stuff man

  5. yup. feeling good right now. my normal walk around weight has been between 170-175 these last few months. so making weight wont be a problem. will also get to eat from now until saturday morning and not have to worry to much. No having to rehydrate either

  6. Did better than last week but still didn't hit my goal. Squat opened with 460. Smoked it. 2nd attempt was 490 was moving slow up and the left spotter jumped the gun and touched it so red lighted. But since it was they're fault they gave me a redo at the weight. 2nd attempt at 490 got it. 3rd attempt jumped to 515. Everything felt great but didn't get it. Bench opened with 315. Got. 2nd attempt went to 335. Got that. 3rd attempt jumped to 350 and stalled out about halfway up. I knew it was going to be a close one for 3rd so I had to go big with DL. Opened up with 420. Got it. 2nd attempt went to 440 got it. 3rd attempt went to 460. Got it moving pretty good. But my knees moved forward and the bar hit them and kind of stuck/threw me off. So didnt get it. But I know come Feb I'll destroy that pull. Totaled out at 1265 which was good for......4th place 3rd place finished with a 1270. So close but so far. This was the first time I've ever had to chase ppl in a meet. Def felt different but I loved the competition. Got a lot to work on. BTW. Vashon perryman. Yea the dudes a freak. 625/325/700.

    Kings of bench. Opened with 315. 2nd attempt 340. 3rd attempt missed 350. 1st Phil brewer with 455. 2nd Joe Luther with 345. 3rd was me. Joe was gonna take his 3rd attempt at 385 but decided to just do 345 after seeing how much i struggled with 340. So really he would have blown me out of the water too.

    Hey man, that's good stuff. That's not far from 8 times your body weight. Well done.

    Thanks, but after watching Perryman, my numbers feel like nothing. Back to training, to try and close some of the gap between my numbers and his.

  9. Nice job on the meet man, caught up on the fb group

    Thanks, got a long way to go still. Need to be doing that with 495+. Got 2 months to train for my next comp and work out some kinks. speed is a big problem for me, so really gonna focus on that

  28. First heavy bench night post comp. Goals for this training period 1.) keep elbows from flaring 2.) bring the bar down lower on me 3.) more leg drive 4.) faster speed (descent/press)

    Moved my grip in one finger and got rid of the mats i normally use. Brought my feet in closer too. I know i got alot of leg drive tonight because the bench tilted back on me at one point so had to have someone step on the peg.

    RC/shoulder/pec warm-ups

    Bench:
    45x1x12 - Cambered bar / reverse grip
    45x2x12 - suicide grip
    135x1x8
    185x1x5
    225x1x3
    245x1x3
    275x1x3
    315x1x3
    +slingshot
    335x1x3
    365x1x3
    +maddog
    405x1x3
    +maddog and 2board
    455x1x3

    Pin Press:
    +2" off chest
    225x1x4
    +4" off chest
    275x1x4
    +6" off chest
    315x1x4
    +8" off chest
    405x1x4

  29. Can't imagine all that weight on my wrists. Impressed as hell.
