This was brought up before, but I will be up for the Arnold and the meet. I was wondering who all was still doing this meet and hear how things are going for everyone with their training.

I think a lot of people are doing the SPF Ironman

But I know Luyando and Key are both going to the IPA meet. As is Mike Wolfe I believe

Having shoulder issues. Interestingly, it only bothers me with the shirt. I'm going to have to go at it raw. Was told I could not bench on the pro day if I went raw. Rules is rules. However, I would like to bench with my training partner Tee Tee. Plus I was excited to get on the platform with Rob, Paul, and Wolf, but that is not to be. So I am going to head to TN instead. Everyone is benching on the same day.

I have not been really training raw. Plus I'm much lighter than when I used to bench raw. Dave Tate is helping me clear up my programming a little. Hopefully I can put together a good 6-7 weeks of training for a raw bench before the meet. It's going to be fun to see all the boys in TN. I know the WS guys will be there, plus many Elite Team members. Trav and I might finally get to share the platform.

Good luck to all with your training.

Thanks for the feedback guys I'm going to give the meet a go in my Single ply Titan Katana from Ken Anderson, I haven't had the time to learn mult-ply but looking forward to later in the year, I am mainly a USPF guy, but I did a IPA Nationals in 2009 and it was a blast and equipment is equipment, hope to meet some of you guys at the meet and good luck and keep me updated with how things are going.

I plan to lift in the Full power, never squatted in a meet and probably should not start now.....

I live in Chattanooga, about an hour and half south of Knoxville. Where is the meet? If I can swing it, it would be fun to go catch part of it since there are going to be so many heavy lifters there!

You should be lifting at Train Station in Middle Valley. Forza bench, monolift, okie DL bar, texas power bar, mastedon squat bar and a good group of PL. Hixson Pike past Chester Frost across from the Arbys.

I will be lifting on Saturday--bench only at the Lexen meet. Training partners will be lifting on Sunday. Doing this meet because its close to home, plus good friends Paul Key, Luyando, Jeff Johnston are coming in, too. Hanging with friends is half the fun!!!
