Great meet this weekend. Probably had the largest turn out ever for this meet, easily 60 - 70 lifters. The venue was amazing as well, props to Detroit Barbell for getting everything set up and running a smooth meet.

I weighed in the day before at 200.6. I would have tried to sweat out the last couple pounds if I were going for a National Record, but I wasn't, so I really didn't give a shit, I was hungry as fuck and just wanted to eat. Definitely bummed I didn't make 198 but in the end it doesn't really matter.

Went 8 for 9, just barely missing my last deadlift at lockout (grip). Totaled 1623 Raw, which is Raw Elite for 220's (finally), and would qualify me for the 2014 RUM.

I ended up with meet PR's on all 3 lifts, though my squat was pretty disappointing. I wasn't able to squat heavy the last month leading up to the meet due to knee problems and probably lost a good 20 pounds off my max. All in all I was very happy. I finally got my Raw Elite total, and my bench is making great progress again.

Amazing bench. What makes it even more impressive is your grip is relatively narrow and your arch is not very big at all.

Awesome job man.

What constitutes RAW for these types of meets? I noticed you were wearing some type of suit (I have very limited knowledge as to suits, so I'm just curious.)

That would be awesome. I'm really considering it, depending on how my training goes for the rest of this year. I'd get my ass kicked but I guess it'd be a good excuse to take a vacation to Florida lol.

I'm wearing a singlet, not a squat suit.

Great lifting! You have very well-rounded numbers IMO. You obviously have that deadlift PR in you since you locked it before the drop.

Did you try and make weight and fall 2 lbs short or did you just walk-in and weigh 200 without trying?

I did try to make weight. I was around 210 about a week before the meet.

Very solid numbers. You're 440 bench was clean and fast! Better than your 2nd attempt. Nice lifting!
