Well did first full raw meet sat in The Clash for Cash. Squatted 450 Bench 500 Dead 550. The rules were USAPL like. Only difference was that we could bench on our toes. Lots of lifts were missed do to the strickness of the rules witch is fine with me. Just makes me feel better about my day. All lifts were PR's. The meet was ran great with no major problems. Nexted up is the APA Bench Press Raw Nationals in Hattisberg, Ms the beginning of Jan.

Congrats to the entire Kellum Powerteam. Jesse Doc Cody Curt Todd Ricky Phil on a great day.
Great work by the Raw 504 crew for putting on a first class meet. Check the pit on the web at raw504.com for info and up coming events.

Cause he's a badass bencher! If I'm not mistaken eric you compete at 220 correct? a 500 RAW bench at 220 is KILLER, especially in competition with strict judging that day! Were those just meet PRs btw? I thought you had hit some higher squat/deadlift numbers in the gym...

I didn't take a 3rd attempt on my squat and didn't open heavy being my first full meet. I was in the open bench only division and wanted to save a little. Took home 500 in cash.
