Squat
575- miss
575- good(100 lb meet PR@148)
600xmiss

Bench
315- good(70 lb full meet PR@148)
330xmiss
330xmiss

Deadlift
470- good(15 lb full meet PR@148)
510xmiss
510x1(55 lb full meet PR@148/10 lbs over all-time full meet PR)

Total
1400(230 lb PR @148)


Didn't hit what I wanted, but it was a good time and I fought it out enough to hit some big PR's. I got the semi-elite total(not by APF standards though). Time to gain some weight and shoot for 1600@165.


Thank you everyone for the help and support and Pete for not completely diving on top of me when I missed my last bench.


Good job to all the first-timers, bombs and all. It took balls to go out there and put it on the line and you all showed a lot of class and heart. I don't know about you, but I can't wait to get back in the gym to do some work.

Did you just not have a good day? I mean in that vid you are deadlifting 515 and you make it look EASY! In your journal, don't you note you squat like 650 in your workouts? Are these meets harder to get more weight up? Stricter guidelines? Sorry Im kinda newbish about meets and such :(

I believe the lifts you mentioned were done at 165lbs.

Thanks everyone.


Yea, I had dieted down for this meet and was a little too light. My equipment was fitting a bit too loose and my strength was down a little bit. When someone ~150 lbs loses a few lbs it's a big difference then someone who is 315 lbs losing a few lbs. Still, these numbers all crushed my old numbers from when I competed at 148, so I had some nice PR's. I let my form break down a bit on my second deadlift, I hit the 510 pretty easy.


Chris- yea, Shawna had the big banner out and was telling everyone about the supplements. That was cool that you guys sent that stuff.

uhhhhh....... i deadlift more than you? lol
i just cant fathom how strong you must be to lift all that weight at 148. im at 220 and those lifts are still a ways off. great job man, keep it up, i bet you squat 4x BW (600) soon.

keep up the good work man, you are crazy :)

That's awesome, but I have a question to all lifters in general. For example, when you did the Bench Press and hit 315 for 1 rep, why did you up it 15 lbs. and go for 330 and miss twice? Why not go for 320 or 325 and hit it? I don't understand that, but it seems like everyone these days does that...and with just weightlifting in general, it just seems like everybody increments their weight by 15-30 lbs. What I don't understand is why people don't increment by smaller weight like 5 lbs. or 10 lbs. and hit the 1RM successfully that way?

Am I missing something?

You can miss a lift for technical reasons.

If that happens there's often a good chance you can hit it if you try it again.

You want to open with an attempt that you know you will hit. After that, you might as well go for a PR and use your third attempt for anything you have left in the tank after that.

But what's the point of attempting too much and missing it? Why not just attempt a little bit less and be successful? Wouldn't that be better?

maybe he needed the extra 30 lb to win and 20 wouldnt have cut it?.. or maybe because he already knows he can get the extra 20lbs (outside of a meet) but he's really pushing himself.

Meets can screw with you. A lot of times you have too much on your mind, or something goes a little wrong, and you can miss a weight you had hit before in the gym.

Kudos to Chris R. Those are awesome lifts for weighing in at 148. Gives me something to aim for. Once again congrats good luck at future meets.

If someone thinks they can hit the weight, why not try it as long as you got the spotters?
