Wow what a meet! A great production by John Inzer and Robert Keller!! I had a great time walking around getting free stuff from the vendors. I invited one vendor to come and watch the meet. He said no unless these certain lifters are competing. That fired up my ego to go for a big pr instead of a win. Next time, I'm not going listening to my ego!! It got the best of me because this was an Arnold Classic qualifier. I missed 578 twice. The winner bench press 501lbs. So, I got second in the open class, but first in the bench press for reps. Clint Poore and I tied for the most reps with 300. So, we did a tie breaker and he won.

1st attempt: 451
2nd attempt: 578 X
3rd attempt: 578 X

Unequipped Pause Bench press for reps
400 x 4($300)
300 x 11
300 x 6

It was an honor to finally meet Mr. John Inzer. We talked for several hours. I was honored when he helped me with my Inzer Rage X. After the meet, Mr. John Inzer took me and Clint Poore out to an expensive steak dinner. Thank you Mr. John Inzer for your 9 year sponsorship! Coming soon Got Inzer Advance Designs Video part II! Thank you BMF Sports for covering my entry fee. Thank you USP Labs for the great joint supplement(SuperCissus RX). Thank you Quest nutrition for the protein powder. Thank you Adrenaline Gear for the high octane clothes.

Nice work. I was at the strongman event right next to the powerlifting but didn't get to watch much... I did see one guy attempt 905 but didn't look like he got it.

When is the next contest for you?
