View Full Version : I didn't squat 1,025, but I lifted at the same meet

Haha, I had the honor of being in Hoss' flight for his historic day. I was a couple of lifters ahead of him. Here's video of my day:


644 good
677 miss (I really messed up setup, and my knees went forward badly.)
677 miss (Started to puke more than half way up. Swallowed it and the lift stalled. Definitely should have just let it fly. I should never miss a lift I get that far out of the hole with. I think I looked rather sick/pale afterwards since everyone was asking if I was OK. Do not drink an entire room temperature powerade before your 3rd squat attempt.)

501 good
522 miss (I blew out both sleeves of the shirt before touching. WTF?)
pass (no backup shirt)

600 good
655 good
683 good

1829 total with the kilo conversion @ 242. This is really stupid but it's ~10 lbs better than my last 2-ply meet. The deadlift is a 6 lb PR in a borrowed suit that didn't really fit right or do much. I'll be at #12 in the single-ply 242 rankings.

Wow, sounds like you had a fun meet. Great job though.

Great job, man!

Thanks everyone. Yeah, the shirt thing sucks. It's being repaired though. I may need to think about buying a backup shirt if I'm going to go to nationals. I can't go there and have my shirt blow out. It's good I got in a lift before it happened.

Way to go man-good meet! Definitely get a back-up shirt for your next meet,though.

Nice one bro.. deffinatly should've let the puke fly haha

What kind of shirt was it?

It's a super katana. One of my training partners out grew it. I bought it off him, so I could do this meet. He had the sleeves taken in by Juan who does all the alterations for Super Training. I'm the first person to blow out one of his alterations. It happened right when Austin yelled at me to tuck more. I tucked as hard as I could and both sleeves blew.

I'm going to keep my eyes open for a used shirt I can use as a backup. I can't go to nationals without a backup.
