CNS still feels fried, so didn't really push it too hard. Need to recover while staying on the diet. Have to take all openers next week, so need to be ready.

Paused Tricep Ext
40s x10 x3
Wide Grip Pulldowns
All feeling good tonight. Opener was easy even though my shirt is a mess. The seams around the armpits are coming apart which stretches the chest plate causing loss of pop off the chest. So itll cause me to leave weight on the platform, but will be good enough for this meet. Im just using this meet as a prequalifying total for next years XPC final, but I still have a shot at taking the #1 spot for 198 multi on PL Watch.
1/25 RPS NJ State Championships.
Well, gear whore problems...
Came into this meet feeling very confident after a short training cycle. Made a 14lb cut and weighed in 2lbs heavier meet day(214).
Squats started off great. Opened up with 800 and smoked it. Felt extremely light.
Took 845 for my second, and again felt easy. But at lockout, I swayed forward a little and gell into the rack just before the the rack call
Third I took 845 again. Rushed the setup and unracked it a little forward. It felt light, so i just went with it instead of reracking and resetting. Got bent over hitting the hole and dumped forward.
Really disappointed at this point since I had alot left in me. Lesson learned here.
Shirt was in bad shape with some seams popped. I hit an easy 585 in it in training, so I kept my opener there. 3 attempts at it proved no good. Shirt popped even more and had no support behind the triceps.
So, ill go at it again probably in May. This time ill make sure the equipment is ready to go.
