it's almost been a year since i've posted here, and i took a 180 degree turn since my last journal, so i figure i'll start a new one.

i have a full power meet coming up on oct 9th. i lift in the apa-wpa
some goals for that meet are

squat: 625
deadlift: 550+
bench: 400

about 2 months ago i tested my max squat at 600(with suit and knee wraps)
and around the same time pulled 525(suited) but i know this was on a bad day and have much more than that in me.

about a month ago 390 went halfway up but drifted out to my stomach and i ended up dropping it on me, this was the first time using a shirt, and not my shirt

it was Eeli Mard's shirt, he is the man that started it all for me in powerlifting
he's 68 and still pulling 550 off the ground and benching 345 give or take a couple of lbs. i think he has 6 world records now. anyways much love to him for showing me how it's done.

and at about 5 pm every night while i was there it poured like a muther trying to wash the puke smell off of bourbon st.(it never worked though) it always only lasted 20 minutes

i'll get a training session in tonight so i'll post it later

jtyrell: thanx man but truely my friends that i lift with(only once in awhile due to all of our schedules being out of whack(i usually lift alone)) all of these guys would seem small in comparison to me, but it dont matter, these guys pound for pound are destroying me, they all say that they are trying to get big like me but forget that i'm just trying to get as strong as them

skillz:whatsup man! hey i went to check out your journal but all i saw was rambling about nothing!! wheres the training homey????

justin: thanx man, we had fun, the place is krazy, in the french quarter people walk around 24 hours a day with a beer in hand, bourbon st. it's something you gotta see to believe, you walk down that street 1 block and you know why they call it the dirty south.

and advice to anyone that goes down on bourbon st. when you hit somewhere around the 800-900's (8th or 9th block) and all you see are good looking males outside of the bars......turn the hell around with the quickness. yes you guessed it ... at that point all i saw were gay bars.
