Awesome time today. Just sitting down for a beer and a steak but i thought i would let everyone know how i did first (because i know everyone was wondering haha). I competed raw, and other than my squat, i was competitive with all the guys near my weight in gear!

I opened with a 350 squat, Nailed it.
Second went to 385... again..

Tried 420 after that, and lost my tightness in the hole and it crushed me. Oh well.

For bench i opened light with 275. I got red lighted for lifting my head (I also started early before the command... but shh) Either way it felt like 225 so i said lets go to 300.

Next lift was 303 (137.5 kg)...

I tried 320 after this, and for some reason my bench went low and i stalled. half way.

On to the DL and the highlight of my day!

Opened with 455 ish and slammed it. One of the spotters took me aside and seemed serious like i did something wrong, and was like next time... put some weight on the bar. Also got a nose bleed during this lift and dripped on the platform.. oops.

Second lift was 485, felt like nothing!

Third lift, and the BIG PR... 230 kg... 507 lbs! Thats a 12 lb PR! Super jacked after this one.

All and all a great day! The meet ran really smoothly. Met some great people (BFGUITAR was one of them). And hit a new PR.
