I have not posted in a couple months as I have been very busy. My father has stage 4 cancer and I am is caregiver. He has been doing chemo for 14 months now and the last couple months were pretty rough for him. My time was spent in and out of emergency rooms and his regular hospital visits. I have still been training and working on getting stronger I just haven't had the time to keep up with my log.
This last Sunday I did the Hardcore Powerlifting NW Championships. I ended up hurting my knee on my second squat so scratched my third. I could not bend my leg without pain and as such could not use leg drive on my bench and deadlifts were rather exciting. I just got very angry and went out and pulled. I really wanted to hit 2000 lbs total but it just did not happen. I won the SHW division with a 1950 total and placed second overall.
I am planning on writing in my log everyday again, but it will be dependent on how my father is doing.
I'm sorry to hear about your father. I hope for the best.
Also, regardless of the injury, good job on your awesome total.

Thanks. I really wanted to break 2000 this year, just didn't happen.
So I just recently competed in the Hardcore Powerlifting NW Championships and did not accomplish the goals I had set forth for myself. This caused me to sit down and reassess my training to ensure I am doing all I should be doing to reach my goals. Looking at my training I realized that I have been spending far too much time coaching others and helping them with their success instead of focusing on my own. I've put together a new routine and have stopped taking all my stimulant supplements and change my diet to being far cleaner than it was. I'm now training twice a day 4 days a week and two other days once a day. I am focused completely on my goals now and have a new drive to accomplish great things. My main focus is now on my gains and my own success. Everybody can come up with some dream or goal but it takes drive to cut through the crap and get it. Time to get it. This next year I will be coming with a vengeance.
