I was verfy dissapointed with my SPF performance a few weeks ago. I knew I had the 600 in me. So I decided to compete this weekend. The 600 actually felt surprisingly easy. This is 600 in my second weight class.

Check out my log in the next few days for a full write up. I learned a lot from this experience, including my miss from a few weeks ago. However, I am completely spent. I just needed to get the vid out there because I am so proud of this accomplishment. I know there are not many lifters on the 600 raw list in two classes. The number of lifters who have done it in their forties has to be even smaller.

Thanks to Chris, the rest of the ALN guys, and everyone here at WBB for being so supportive.

Thanks guys, it was a good day. Although, I feel like I have been hit by a Mack Truck. Competing twice within a month has completely fried my central nervous system.

Scott, regarding my speed work coming into the meet. As I can recall, Dave had me wave up weight, then had me add chains, then it was bands, bands and chains, then double bands. However, for the last three weeks I just deloaded. I have learned from most of my competions in the past few years I am much more successful deloading 2-3 weeks before a meet. I am going to do some more reflecting and then discuss it further in my meet write up.

Phenominal speed Vin!

Love watching your set up.

Wow, that is crazy impressive! You looked like a man on a mission and just killed it. I think 600 moved even faster than your opener!

Vincent,

That was a great accomplishment. It was great to see it and even better to be a part of it. I'm just glad I could add something to the day.

I'm looking forward to training for the Europa and really smashing weights with the team. Good lifting bro. Rest up asnd come back to the gym with that same intensity that you showed on Saturday.

Is that the one in CT? I was planning on making that my first meet.
