So this was an eventful meet experience, no doubt. The weigh-ins were 5-6PM on Friday night, lifting was Saturday. I started my fast (no water/food) 4:30 on Thursday, weighing 154 on my scale at home (which was 3.5lbs lighter than the meet scale). I had a piece of toast with almond butter Friday morning but that was it. At 2PM on Friday I was 148 on my home scale, but decided to cut a few lbs of water with the sauna at a local gym to make sure. I was 151.5 on the gym scale (it matched the meet scale). So over the course of 2 hrs I was in and out of the sauna to hit weight. I got to the weigh-ins at 5:57 and weighed 148.75 on the dot. I was able to get back up all the way to 157.5 before the end of the night, but it wasnt comfortable at all.

Squats didn't go the greatest. I smoked 345 for my opener, hit 385 on the second with not too much strain (my previous PR), and missed 430 out of the hole on the 3rd. I probably overshot what I was capable of, but there is always next meet.

Benching went good by my opinion, but the head judge disagreed. I hit 175 easy for my opener. I took 215 for my second, stalled half way up, kept pushing and I got past it and the judge said to take it. He said I went down, which was questionable on the 2nd. Same thing happened for the 3rd, but he said take it after I had locked it out. He did it to the guy after me too. Ill consider the 215 my PR and will base my weights off of that.

215 - http://s9.photobucket.com/albums/a60/The_Teen_Titan/WNPF%20Aug%2014th/?action=view&current=2153rdbenchmiss.mp4 Ive played this slowed down a few times, the bar stalls and moves back a little but then goes up. Bad call, but it happens.

Deadlifting went perfect and I hit my goal. Opened with 315, went fast. Hit my goal of 355 on the 2nd. It looks fast but it was a strain. 375 was a 3rd and it didnt come off the floor; just to heavy and I was shot. Bruised the top of my knees bad on the way down on one of those attempts...o well. :)

915 @ 148 officially, 955 with the 215 bench factored in to measure progress off of. Not the greatest meet, by not the worst either. It was very well run, the warm-up area was great, the spotters saved my ass on the squat, and all the lifters were great guys.

Good job. Next time go for 5lb prs on all second attempts. That way you won't repeat a old pr and leave too much weight on the platform. If I were you I would use 215 as well for your percents. Strength is there. Again congrats

Good meet! Good results and learned some things! I've lost count of how many meets I've done and it seems I learn something about my lifting or about myself at everyone! That's what keeps it new and exciting!

Great job Eddie, I know it's not quite what you wanted but definitely something you can build on.
