Meet Results

I had my meet this Saturday

I weighed in Meet morning at 260 after having breakfast, slamming a RESULTS Shake with 2 coops of Opticen a good bit of water. My scale at home first thing in the morning had me at 255.

I went into this meet with some lofty goals. To be honest I didnít get any of them but I did walk a way with more USAPL experience that will give me an edge come August for USAPL Nationals.

Squat

. I opened at 575. This popped up. I then went to 640. After watching the video I was very pleased with the quality of the lift. I was hoping to go 660 on a third but I opted to wave my third attempt since this meet was purely for experience. Plus a fly shit on the bar I may have died LOL

Bench

I went into the meet feeling great about my bench. I hit PRs each week and on my last heavy day I hit 430 for 6. I opened with 440 and felt great. I went for 496 twice and flat out missed. No clue why? Felt strong just wasnít my day

Deadlift

I opened at 625 then hit a safe 700. I was hoping to get that 496 bench then take like 725 for a third for new American record. After doing the math I would have needed 775 to get that. With those stiff USAPL bars that is a number on a different planet for me right now.

So my second USAPL meet is down and its time for Nationals in August. Big Thanks to Chris and Daniel form Atlarge. I have lived off of Nitrean, Results, Opticen, BCAA plus and ETS. While training for my 3 mile mud race warrior dash that I did last weekend my legs were beat to hell and keeping my body fueled was more important then ever.

Those are great lifts and really cool to see someone go from multi ply lifting to the strictest possible lifting raw. Must have been a real shot to the ego but I think thats really admirable.

I can't see your deadlift vid, but anyways, great work. Very strong.

Nice lifting, I think it is really cool that you've decided to do the USAPL meets.

Incidentally, my squat sticking point is the same as yours (albeit with a lot less weight). That high of a sticking point has always seemed strange to me for a raw lifter. Have you used any particular exercises to address it?

Great lifts! On the squat it looks like you were off center and made the lift a lot more difficult for you.

Its all relative so i my ego is stilll in tact lol. I miss knee wraps though. It isnt too fun going from 2605 to 2000 with wraps to 1780 with just a belt but i think im far from my best in usapl fashion. Hopefully at nats it will come together

Good job and good luck in August. Very easy 440 there. You usually take such huge jumps in between benches?

I also see Niko looking quite small as usual in the head judges chair haha.

Scott- I was training with my suit/groove briefs/ belt every week leading up to my meet and it went well, now Im training with nothing, not even a belt for 8-10 weeks post meet, do you think this is beneficial for the long run or should I just keep taining with gear year round since Ill compete w it?

I plan to start addin stuff back in, but since you have trained both ways thuroughly what is your opinion?

PS. Not trying to derail the thread

every time the name "Scott Yard" comes up to mind, I always think of you wearing an open back multiply Metal shirt. I never expected you to be lifting raw, yet compete Raw at the USAPL. I'm impressed

You have inspired me to lift at a few raw usapl meets
