The results are not what I expected, but I had an unbelievable time & learned from my mistakes!

NASA WV OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP
Body weight: 218
1st attempt: 462
2nd attempt: 562(miss)
3rd attempt: 562(miss)

Well, I learned what probably caused me to miss my attempts. I competed 3 weeks earlier and I woke up @ 4:30 a.m. and drove 3 hours to the meet. I just didn't have the strength on the bp platform as I did 3 weeks earlier. So, I won't be doing meets so close together and no early morning drive to meets again:)

The great part of the meet is the whole helping & uplifting environment that I always enjoy being a part of. No hating, bashing or negative attacks as you see sometimes on line(training forums) The crowd and lifters cheering everybody on. Lifters helping and supporting each other. Lifters helping each other put on equipment. I helped back spot during the squat flight, load during the deadlift flight and load equipment in the trailer. It's great helping at a powerlifting meet. Also, the meet director provided free double cheese burger for the lifters.

So, I felt great during the 3 hour drive back home and looking forward to my next meet. I'm going to deload for the next 2 weeks and start back hitting it hard again.:strong:

Thank you Inzer, AtLarge Nutrition, BMF Sports, USP Labs and Adrenaline Gear for your great support:thumbup:

getting up early sucks! i do it every day, so i guess that prepares me a bit for meets. i'd say the around the 3 hour mark is when i'd start considering a hotel. great job none the less JT.

I enjoy the whole atmosphere, not just the bp competition. Also, I help at all NASA meets that I attend too(spotting, loading, judging,etc.):thumbup:

Thanks a lot,

The meet director said I could crash at him home, but I refused because I wanted to spend an extra day with my beautiful wife & daughter:thumbup:

Dont sweat it youll easily come back and hit it next time weights are funny like that some times you can hit it consistently sometimes not but either way itll get up there easy next time.
