Its that time again. I think I posted this thread last year. We're a little over 2 weeks out.

Who's coming/lifting?

I'll be heading up Wednesday afternoon, lifting on Friday. Best of luck to everyone, last year it was a great weekend with a lot of crazy lifts. Mike Ferguson does a great job.

I will be there Friday to see Travis bench 800. Depending on what my schedule looks like I might try to be there Sunday to watch the heavyweights.

My training partner Henry Thomason will be lifting on Sunday. He should do something sick. Squatting 1,200 is not out of the question for him.

I will be there handling 2 of our guys from Guerrilla Squad Barbell on Friday. I'll watch on Saturday....I'm sure to see something stupid from Freakl. Then on Sunday I will help Henry Thomason and Jake Anderson (formerly GSB, now Westside Member). Watch out for both of them. Henry, like Adam stated above, 1200 is certainly not out of the question. And Jake Anderson is a freak! He is a 308 and look for 2600 out of this guy. He is just getting started! If depth is tight, these guys will NOT have a problem sinking them.

Headed down Friday to watch an 800 bench from Travis Bell.

I will apparantly be there to bench 800!! LOL

Honestly I do hope I bench 800 (maybe a little more too?) Feels like its been a long time comming, but its given me even more respect for guys who bench over 800

There will be some awesome lifting going on for sure on both the light and heavy days

Get a pr first Travis then go for 800.

I wasted a few meets chasing landmarks and not pr's.

You do have the strength for it.

Its one of those networking things. It's a bigger pain in the butt than facebook as far as I'm concerned, but it is useful with things like meet updates and sports scores.

Thanks Scott. I'm opening up with a PR this weekend, which isn't my usual method, but we got to a point where Lou felt it was smarter to open with a weight that I can touch solid as opposed to a weight that is light. Although I'll admit I'll be more comfortable when that first one is out of the way lol.

hahaha if everyone is a little confused about the twitter account, I can just post it here. It just takes me a little longer but I can do that from my phone

However I can probably just do it here or both.

Honestly I'm just trying to make it easier for people to keep track of what's going on at the meet for those who can't be there. No time consuming streaming, no results page update that doesn't work, just posting numbers up.

Agreed. Lones and I did the whole "text me and I'll post it" thing and it was kind of a hassle more than it was worth. One person ends up sitting next to a computer waiting for the texts, kinda boring actually

Make it a great day! Everyone competing, be strong in mind and body, looking forward to seeing some of you and meeting you but I am really excited and pumped for an 800 plus bench from a Superior Athletics member and president ;)

Having the control and stones to step on stage and do it for real is something every person who competes should feel weather your a 900lb bencher or 225lbs! AWESOME fellas just AWESOME!

You have the drive and perseverance to keep at it, and thats worth more than any bench number.

I hit a 190 pound PR on my total, 725 squat 375 bench and a 575 deadlift. Really proud of myself.

Thanks bud. I will. I gambled a bit on the shirt this time around and it didn't work out in my favor. I plan on touching weights enough in the gym so that next time I go to a contest I know exactly what numbers I'm capable of.

I also wetted the shirt down way too much. I NEVER wet the shirt, so why I decided to do it yesterday is beyond me. Combination of a few things.

I just have to keep at it with the shirt and I'll put it together.

Chuck opened raw and I think benches 610 on a second. Tony bombed on the bench. Came very close with 900 but the spotters took it a little too quickly. They allowed him another attempt but only gave him about 5min

I think rich benched 680 Jake Anderson benched 685? An Childress benched 700 something

Travis Bell
08-22-2010, 11:25 AM

No problem Rich. I'm with Lones, I thought you were going to get that pull

It was really a fun meet to watch today. So much good lifting. The numbers I posted here should be pretty spot on, but don't take them verbatim. I was trying to stick them up in between helping the rest of the team so I may have misheard something along the way. Plus the internet connection was a bit spotty

I know how frustrating it is for me when I'm not able to be at a meet and am looking around the internet for results lol. Hopefully this worked out easily for you guys.

I don't think Travis should concentrate on an 800. It will come and we all know it. Travis has to concern himself with getting to know his equipment to the best of his ability and continue to get stronger. As long as he keeps making progress 800+ will be a foregone conclusion.

Thanks for the words of wisdom fellas. I believe you are 100% correct

I plan on touching numbers in the gym and completing them regularly enough so that I have no problem hitting some PR numbers.

It was very tempting to find a bench meet in the area very quickly and give it a shot again, however I think it'd be a mistake. I'll probably hold tight til November and then see what happens. The shirt is certainly capable of it and I really like it, I just need to use it accurately.
