Wow, that's crazy. No wrist wraps either. Did you lift that off yourself? It didn't look like the spotters helped you. What weight class are you? Congrats!

I lifted off myself. I train alone so I decided to lift how I train and it worked out well. I weighed in at 223.6, and that put me in the 242 weight class.
