Hey guys! Sept. 12th meet report.

I had a good meet! Not every lift I wanted to make and missed 2 of the all time records (over 50) I wanted, but still very good! I won the single ply division of the APF La. Open Championships at 275s (weighed 269). I also lifted as a Master and won Best lifter Master's.I squatted 804 (#9 on the PL Watch lifter Rankings). I tried to break Ernie Frantz's all-time >50 single ply squat record from the USPF in 1990 of 826. I tried 832 but couldn't come out of the whole with it. If I researched it right, I opened with the all-time best >50 full meet bench in single ply with 529 lbs. Collin Bonneau had the previous best at 519 in the IPF. I tried 573 twice but missed it both times. The 529 is #36 on the PL Watch ranking. I pulled 573 easily on my 3rd pull after loosing my grip and dropping the same weight as I was locking out on the second attempt. Both went up real fast in the Velocity Suit. I wished I had another attempt! I totaled 1906 at 53 Y.O. in single ply and I'm pretty happy with that. I wanted Ernie's squat (826) and total record (2000.5), but on a 5/9 day it wasn't going to happen. I think they are within my reach though. All in all I had a good meet, and as usual Garry ran a great meet. I lifted in Titan's Super Centurion Squat Suit, Centurion Briefs, closed back Katana Shirt, and the new Titan Velocity Deadlift Suit.

On a side note, Jordan Dunn at 18 Y.O. did the single ply 165s and totaled 1802!!! 98 lbs. higher than the previous best open 165 single ply total this year! I believe his squat was 716 and he walked it out. He already had the #1 squat this year with 677. He was in all Titan gear also. Jordan won Best Light Weight Open Lifter. He is the next 'Great one'!

Agreed! I'm awe struck each time I see him lift! And he is such a great and humble acting guy! He and his Dad Butch are just good people!

Thanks Brian! I'm sure you'll still be bustin' new PRs in 10 years! This keeps you young!

One of my all-time inspirations was there and lifting. 63 year old Vince Breaux. He hit his 1st 500 bench in a meet 2 weeks before and pushed out 507 at this meet, but fouled it on uneven extension. But my gosh he pushed it strong! I told him about the same thing you said above! Vince is 63 and looks like he'd still be at home on a bodybuilding stage!...except for the long white hair and beard! I nicknamed him the "Santa Monica Santa" while announcing a meet he was in last year. I think he kinda' liked that! He is a crowd pleaser!

Thanks Allan! I really am excited and got a new fire now. I was really jacked up and motivated after winning the WPC World in 05 in Helsinki at 308s (45-49) with a 2006 Lb. total (multi-ply). Then the shoulder went bad training for the 06 Worlds in N.Y. and I bombed on the bench. Then finally had the surgery in early 07. It's been a shaky comeback with some bombouts and sub-par totals but things feel back on track now. I felt real solid in Baton Rouge and totaling only 100 lbs. less than my 05 best multi-ply total, 4 years older and in all single ply really does have me ecxited and motivated again! Now I'm looking forward to the APF Georgia Open on Oct. 17th!
