I appreciate all the support from everyone here. I didn't have a very good meet. My head was not in the right place. Physically I felt a little off, but most of it was mental. Long story short, my GF of 6 1/2 years decided things weren't working out two days before the meet. It really hit me hard and I'm gonna basically be a zombie for a while. Now that all the excuses are out of the way I'll let you know how I did.



Squat

655-miss...I cut this an inch high. I had to unrack it 3 times to setup because I had the wrong rack height. My own stupid fault.

655-good lift/5 lb meet PR....this was the slowest grinder of a squat but somehow I stood up.

I decided to pass on my third.


Bench

375-good lift/25 lb full meet PR

400-miss...touched too low

400-miss...touched too high, lol


Deadlift

500-good lift

525-miss...lost grip above knees

525-miss...same thing


1530 total @165. I only went 3 for 8, but I did manage two PR's. I fell 10 lbs short of my total PR, but that was when I made 6 lifts. I won best lifter for the light weight men. I definitely have a lot of things to work out(both mentally and physically) to get ready for another meet. I'll need some time for both.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation with your girlfriend. That's rough at any time, and one can certainly understand how it would get in your head that close to a meet. Still, two meet PR's is not too shabby! Nice work, man!

Congrads on the PRs! A 500 lb deadlift sounds mighty nice.

And dont worry, now your single! You haven't been single in 6.5 years! Think about it!

Chris, keep ya head up bro..... These types of personal situations do happen from time to time, you'll get through it though and come out much stronger I am sure....

I wish I was just missing numbers like those ;)

Chris, good lifting and try not to let the situation with the woman upset you too much. I understand, trust me...

Very impressive lifting even if you "didn't have a very good meet". Those numbers are insane for your size. Sorry to hear about the ladyfriend, but you'll bounce back.

married = little to no pussy
girlfriend = one pussy
neither of the above = more pussy than you can handle.

Now you can focus on the important things like lifting heavy weights with no distractions! It sucks man but we've all been down that same road and time will take care of it. Best thing to do is just get out and occupy yourself and whatever you do don't call her or beg/chase her, let her flounder in her bad descision. Plus when you don't call she'll be wondering whats up with you and why you dropped her so easy.

Thanks for the kind words everyone. I got back into the gym today because I'm a lifter and it's what I do. We are still on very good terms and she still wants me to help take care of our dog(which means I get to take her out everyday after work and feed her). This means a lot to me because we have had her since she was 6-7 weeks old and she is now over 5 years old. Life will go on and I have good friends and family who will support me and help me get through it.

Good work at the meet, Chris! Setting PR's isn't a bad thing, but we're never happy with anything. You know that if you went 9 for 9 that you'd have thought you'd have left some on the platform. Never enough, man. Never ennough.

It may seem that way at first but when you go over to take her out and feed her and see other things in her place that ain't supposed to be (flowers, empty wine glasses and other ****) you'll wish you'd cut ties. I'm saying this out of personal experience. Bad idea. Very bad idea. The above is the exact situation I walked into days after my ex and I broke up, when I went over to walk the dog. I'm just lucky I didn't walk in on anything else. Bad idea. Get yourself another dog and move on. Easier said than done, I know but it'll make all the difference in the world.
