Not as smooth as I wanted this set to go. I got out of groove on the third rep because my right leg started to slip from under me. I think this will be my opener on the 20th. This will be my first full powerlifting meet. :cry:

Thanks guys for the feedback.



Scott, right now I plan to open with 600 for my Deadlift, and around 400 for my Squat. First time squatting in a meet so I'll see how it goes. I know it's pretty low for a 230lb guy, but I am working on it. Trying to expand as a full powerlifter and not be a bench only guy.

That is insane to see someone rep that much weight with solid form, Props to you man. Looks like you just lift alone at your house?

Wow! That was awesome!

I couldn't help but wish that you had a spotter, or that those safety bars were a notch higher. Had that 3rd rep gone bad, like it almost did, it would not have been pretty.

One other thing: What is the brand of that cage/rack? (I'm in the market, and can't decide)

You are a RAW beast bro... I'd like to see what you could do w/ a good "shirt"!

Thanks. Yes I lift primarily alone at home, and I do most of my leg work at a gym on base.

Thanks. I wish I had a spotter too, but I am a shift worker with an alternating schedule so it's pretty hard to have a training partner.

I have actually used those saftey bars on several occasions, and they are positioned so that I can get from under it in case I get stucked.

The brand of the rack is Powerline. I ordered it from Dicks online.

I have the same one. For the guy who was interested, I order mine of bodybuilding.com for 300 and the shipping was free. Not sure if it still is up there and/or at the same price but if budget isn't high then its a good option. Obviously can handle some weight :)
