drove out to Gatlingburg early Thursday morning and just barely made weigh in at noon Friday, I weighed in at 232, 10 pounds light due to being sick all week. Took the boys out all day to play around Gatlinburg area.

Meet started with rules at 8:30 am and ended with awards at 11:00pm! It was a long ass day with around 100 lifters. I took my first squat at around 10:00 and my first bench aroud 4:30, so a huge wait in between lifts.

I wore all single ply gear, the squat suit is a 2 year old loner and dl suit I am the third owner of and I can pull on myself easy.

ok, here we go:

squats, opened with 750, felt heavy coming out of the rack, but easy lift.
second, 775, felt real heavy, good lift
third, this was to beat my best ever double ply squat so I went 805 (pr), felt like a ton out of the rack, and it was close to the hardest i have ever pushed but good lift, nice a deep.

bench, warm ups went well, opened with 500, easy.
second, 530, shirt slipped on setup but still grinded it out.
third 550 (pr) nice clean lift

deadlift, I upped my opener to 645 so I would I have 2000 total, easy lift.
second 675 for a pr, got it. Total 2030. Thought about taking 700 for a ride, but it was around 10:00pm and I had not eaten much all day and already had a pr, so we called it quits.

squat- 805
bench- 550
dl- 675
total- 2030@232

all world records and all pr's. I am now elite raw, single and multi-ply.

One person had a bigger total than I did but he also weighed 100lbs more.

there were lifters from 14 to 80 years old, and even a female that got a prostetic leg a week ago and still benched and deadlifted, just amazing.

Got to meet a alot of great lifters, and some people that post here, and it was a pleasure.

It was long drive back and I ended up getting a migraine and I am still bit sick from it as I type, but other than that a good weekend, no injuries for anyone and the boys had a great time. Got all lifts except one on video and will be posting those in the next few days.

for those that do not know, sorefoot here is the lady (here name is Dana) that I was speaking of that just got the prosethic (sp?) leg and still competed, just an absolute inspiration to be around. On top of that she is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. She drove all the way from Jersey to be there.

Congrats on your elite totals!

It was great meeting you again, those boys of yours were all over you :)
You could just see in their eyes how proud of their dad they were!

Thanks for renaming me "big" power. It was a long meet, I didn't get my first DL in until 9 pm, glad Jesse is moving it to a 2 day meet next year.

I was there Saturday. I don't know if we met or not. I did not compete. I was there to help Vicki.

Will you be doing recordbreakers in november. I am deadlifting in that one.
