So i went to the Metal Militia Power Wars. I didn't compete, just there to help out Curd who was lifting in there raw division. Anyway he opened with a nice 501 lb bench. The 3rd highest bench overall i believe (including multiply lifters!).

He missed his following attempts, but they were damn close. He had been hitting PRs the previous week and may have peeked a bit early, as this meet was a last minute thing.

On a side note, Al Mehan competed there. He totaled something like 2525 after hitting a 1014 lb squat! Crazy thing i had ever seen close up.

Crazy eh. I have seen him hit way more than this in the gym. Strong guy, hes helping me out with my training big time. I have put over 30 lbs on my max in the less than three months i have been training with him.

It's great to be around guys like that.

Thats awesome. Congrats to Al too on hitting a huge squat. A few weeks ago he missed 1010 I think at CPO nationals. A couple of my training partners were at that meet.

Yeah i guess thats why he came to this one to compete. It was crazy, i have never seen someone get so jacked up for a lift like he did. I think he went through a whole bottle of nose torque and probably 30 smelling salt packets.

Yeah, you train with Clint right (not stalking you, just put it together with gym photo thread). I met him there as well.

Haha yeah he doubled it the week before as a demo at a smaller meet that i competed at (his company sponsored it). This meet had some bad timing for him, he set a huge PR the week before, then that double a few days later, then got wind of this meet and went. I would have liked to see him hit a 550 or so raw, i know its there, i have seen it!

I opened a couple people before him, and it was amazing to see a lift like that look so easy. And as always Al was a total freak to watch in action. Great job to both.

P.s. Dan, when you gonna be back Monday nights?
