    Body Weight went up to 260lbs on Friday eek: I didn’t even binge eat on Thanksgiving. Dropped back to 255 on Saturday, and hardly ate on Sunday. BW this morning was 248.6 which will put me about 252 during the day. I would like to be down another 2-3lbs by Thursday before I drop to 242 for weigh ins on Friday.

  5. Lost 12 lbs from Fri to Mon morning.....thats crazy man! Thought I was the only one who could do it.

  6. Well its looking like this weekend will not be happening. I’m subbing out the sheetrock work on the new floor I added to my house and will be able to have them get started this week. Been busting ass since Sunday to finish up some of the framing and misc items that have to be done before they start. The impact is that I was not planning on doing this till later in December so I’m having to stretch the finances to come up with a few thousand dollars right now. Not sure that I can afford to be out of town right now let alone another $500 in fuel, hotel room, food (for me and handler), entry fee, ect. I will talk it over with wife tonight but I just don’t see it happening.

    There will be competitions nearly every month between March-August next year so I will have plenty of opportunity to get that big total on the board.

  7. That blows man, but I guess you have to have your priorities. I guess it will give time to get that 1k squat for next one.

  8. got all my work done on the house i needed to. Drywall is starting to go in tonight and they seem to have a good handle on things. so not much else for me to do for next couple days,.....

    may as well go test my abilities.

    Bags are packed. Still 250+ so 8-10lbs to drop 2morrow before 6pm. Got my recomp goodies all packed up (hope i'm heading right direction as i have not done this before...sweet and salty). 1lb salty torltilla chips, 1lb chips ahoy, 1lb cheez its, 2lbs sweetened yogurt, 64oz gatorade, and a bunch of banana's. Not sure what all i'll get down. try to sqeeze a dinner and breakfast in as well

  9. Meet report.

    Overall bombed but I would call the meet a success for me as it was an experimental meet and I wanted to see how some things played out. Wanted to learn a few things more and get some more meet time under my belt before this next year. I only last minute decided to continue with meet after finishing up work on house I needed done and getting sheet rockers lined out, so I ended up not being prepared for meet.

    I’ll save the lessons learned till the end.

    Weighed in the low 251-252 upon bedtime at 10pm the night before weigh ins and made weight the next day at 5:30pm at 241lbs. and probably dropped another 1lb within a half hour after that. Back at 250lbs by 10pm for bedtime that night without dumping any further wieght.

    Squat…couldn’t hit depth.
    825- just not enough weight
    870 – missed twice. Should have been able to hit depth but I kept freaking out every time I got close to that position I dumped the weight in my last workout. Simple lack of confidence as the weight felt like absolutely nothing on my back. Felt crazy easy. ****in head!!!

    Bench
    570 super easy
    610 miss due to raising but
    630 slow lock but got it. Meet PR!

    Deadlift – First competition Sumo and only second time doing a max sumo pull.
    630 supa easy
    690 successful but nearly dropped it as I did the same thing at last comp and forgot to really grab the bar! I was holding it with 2 fingers in my right hand and they did not give me quick down call. judge was flickin me crap afterwards telling me that was the strongest 2 fingers he has seen!!! PR
    720 right to very end but couldn’t pull hips through. Did remember to grab the bar however.

    If I had sunk one of my squats I would have had a 2190 or greater total.

    Lessons learned.

    Weight Loss – dropping and recomping 10-12lbs in a short period of time is easy but uncomfortable. I took some diesel fuel caps (caffeine +) the day I cut to suppress appetite, diuretic aid, and energy. I did not take into account I was taking these on a completely empty system and should have gone with a minimal dose, if any at all. I was dry heaving by weigh in time (excessive caffeine and nervousness does this to me) and struggled all evening with getting food down afterwards. I easily regained all my weight but wasn’t able to super compensate.

    Preparedness – I need a checklist. And FOOD is of the utmost importance. Like I said this was last minute and I planned for the recomp but not for meet day. And basically did not eat the day of the meet!!! Felt solid on squat but by the afternoon when it came to benching and deadlifting I was really depleted and I could feel it affecting my strength levels. THIS WAS A MAJOR FAILURE. My stomach is a mess in the morning and I was only able to get down a few pieces of fruit and part of my pancakes. I did bring along some fixins for PBJ’s but didn’t have time to make one till 3pm prior to the Deadlift. So I basically went 2 days with only a couple hours of eating in there. I also forgot baby powder, singlet, battery for drill, batteries for camera, toothpaste, ect…you get the idea.

    Training Program – felt stronger and that my strength peaked about 3-4 weeks ago. Need to evaluate my training program leading up to the meet.

    And I missed not having my wife there

  14. I love your lessons learned section. That you missed your wife is priceless Sounds like you have all the pieces lined up to take the next meet!

  15. I'm beginning to really like Buki... he seems like a really nice guy, but don't tell him how I feel because I want to keep up my tough guy appearance around him. I like to make him feel I keep him in check.

    sshhhhhh

    And it feels like you're pulling it through mud after 5 minutes.

  27. Big numbers Kabuki, nice work. I hope I can figure out those GHRs one day.

  28. I came pretty close to buying a GHR. SB had linked me to a Craigslist listing for one that was for sale by a Laker's trainer. I think it was for 500 or so.. That was around the time I was building my gym Buki.. when I was dropping lots of duckets on the bars and weights.

    I kind of regret not buying it. Didn't you build yours?

  29. yep i built mine. bought the pad from the company that builds the equipment for elite but built the rest. i didn't want of the standard ones that are sometimes desinged to make it easier.

    I'm hoping to put a significant amount on my deadlift during next 12 weeks by using it. that and the SSB i will be building in next few weeks.:good:
