I'm doing full 3-lift at a meet oct 30th. Still trying to get the hang of my bench shirt and my squat suit. Hopefully NOT bomb out this time and make my total to qualify for nationals(705kg's @ 110).

Nothing in site right now... Done (4) meets thus far this year so I think I'll deload for a bit and regroup in 2011.

I'm handling a couple of the guys from the gym in Oct./ Nov. for a AAPF/ APF meets... They helped me a lot at my last one so I'm returning the favor!

Plan on benching at the Lexen Pro/Elite meet on March 5, 2011. That gives me planty of time getting used to this Block Periodization training. My partners are doing the Lexen full power meet in October--will be handling them that weekend.

6 of us from Monster Barbell are doing the APF Mississippi in 2 days. One week after doing the APF Georgia! Then 10 days later I'm getting a new shoulder. So, it will be at least a year until the next one for me. I'll be just coaching a while.

I just did my first meet yesterday. The UPA Washington Fall Championships in Kennewick, WA. I had a blast but things did not end up how I wanted them too at all. I competed raw in the drug tested division as a light 275lbs. I had my dream of going in and getting a 1500 raw total in my first meet, but quickly learned that technical and conditioning issues would be my downfall haha. I destroyed my second squat at 465lbs and went for 500 and got 2/3 of the way up and fell forward because I didn't arch hard/fast enough. I had done 515 in the gym, so even though i had the power it just wasn't there that day. I opened my bench at 350 and smoked it. Along with 375 which beat the current UPA-AD full meet bench national record in that division, I destroyed that weight. I moved up to 400 and got it a 1/3 of the way up and I fell out of my groove and it fell backwards towards my head and they had to grab it. On to the deadlift I opened up with 500 and it seemed heavy even though I got it. I got 535 on my second and it seemed to move extremely slow. I looked at my video and I pretty much straight legged it. I had not dipped down at all and used my legs. So on my third I got 550 pretty smooth. I decided I wasn't going to live with a 1390 total so I called for 560 on my 4th attempt and from starting to lockout it took me 9 seconds lol. The hardest grinder I ever had but I got it for a 1400lb total. So I lost about 60lbs on technical issues and another 40lbs on conditioning. I have deadlifted 600+ but I was just so gassed there was no way. Despite everything I am still happy that I went 8/10 and got 3 whites on every lift I completed and got to meet and see Ryan Kennelly bench press. I am taking this week off and next saturday going to get into some briefs and start working in gear. I'll do my next meet AAPF in Aberdeen, WA on December 4th. I'm pretty much hooked now!

Just competed in the GA state meet Sept 11. It was my second meet. came in ill-prepared as this is right in the middle of football season(im a coach). squatted an easy 474, missed 529 on my next 2 attempts(had doubled 525 my last heavy squat session before the meet). so i have no clue what happened, completely laughable. bombed on all 3 bench attempts. and pulled a meet PR 540. as crappy as i came into the meet, the squat and DL are respectable, but the bench is flat out crap! looking at a meet at years end or one in the new year. not sure yet.

Trust me, an SLP meet is about the furthest thing away from IPF rules as you can get.

If you would be so kind to expand on this I would appreciate it. You can send it in a PM if you wish.

oct 10 Highland Games in Ventura, CA.. looking to take top 3 in my first A class games, then down to Tucson AZ in november for another Highland Games.. afterwards, if my groin is feeling 100%, there's a local strongman, in mid november, then hopefully a PL meet early next year followed by more Highland Games in Phoenix..

Good luck to everyone out there!!

CPF Nationals next may. I know its a long way out, but I'm trying a Block Periodization set up for the first time and figured I should give it a decent run before a meet.
