soi cam in third in my powerlifting competition today, which isnt bad, but in the 198 class only one kid deadlifted below four hundred, and then in the weight classes above that teh average deadlift was about 500, this kid teh size of a bean pole deadlifted 495, it was crazy

What were your numbers? Lift to better your numbers and not against others. You'll get more satisfaction out of this sport that way.

lol i know ive been to 4 now placed in two, but i benched 225 and deadlifted 440 and blew a blood vessel in my face do to pretty bad form doing it.
iwas just sayin like im proud that i at least placed, because that is strong meet for h.s isnt it

i won by 10 pounds cuz this kid failed his last set, man it was great though everyone was so intense i loved it

have u ever had trouble sleeping before a meet?

The night before my meet I woke up every 2 hours because I didnt want to sleep late and be late for it. I didnt even set my alarm, it was just my body's natural alarm clock. So yes lol.

Nice job at the meet too btw

lots of people have trouble sleeping the night before meets, bud. thats why you need caffeine, adrenaline, and FOOD.
