up to 635x1 very easy. quite happy with how the pulls felt. 700 should be in reach but at the end of a long day who knows.
Good luck with the 700, you seem ready so it should go up no problem!!
worked on double turns with 56 and 28 and felt more comfortable with them. about half were completed legally and i still fell over on the others.
worked on weight transfer on the stone but don't feel like i made much progress.

Meet day SPF nationals june 5th
felt real confident on my squats going into this meet but i didn't put my weight back on very well even though it was a small cut. from 205 to 195 (woops!)
squats at noon in the 4th flight
gear was a bit loose
1st 850 good - was surprised at how deep they were calling depth. i was pleased, very consistent and strict!
2nd 900 miss - didn't tighten straps or wraps
3rd 900 good - took it rather deep and came up well. tighter wraps and straps
eleventy hundred hours later, bench (really about 4pm) 6th flight, < yeah really
1st 460 good - real conservative opener was super fast
2nd 500 good - lil slower but real smooth
3rd 520 misgrooved low
deadlift 4th flight at 630
1st 630 good - super easy
2nd 665 good - fast but almost fell forward at the top
3rd 705 miss - blew it up off the floor very fast but didn't get my hips down enough at the start. knees locked when it got past my knees and lost it. shocked at how i missed this, very weird. definitely feels like it was ther for the taking i just messed up.
ended up with a 2065 pr total. not all i hoped for but still a good day for me. very close to the top 20 all time total list.
2065 @ 198 is awesome!!
Great work, sure you'll knock the 705 pull over shortly.
Awesome Derek, huge squat. I'm sure you'll go over 2100 soon, just need to put everything together. Bench is coming along for you too, that's good to see. Deadlift, I'm not fit to comment on....
huge total.. congrats. sounds like 2200+ is not all that far.

sunday upper and throwing

8 throws with 15lb stone still trying to finish through better. getting there slowly but still not finishing through very well. video will help.
working on 2 spin, throw better with 1 but have to take advantage of the double.
8 throws - no sprinting to the toe board hard enough at all causing decelleration and asstastic distances.
now that i can see it on video i should be able to fix it.
hams and back are fatigued from throws the day before
up to 455 raw, maybe a scooch high but moved well
add moderate wrap
655x4 missed 5th losing balance in bottom. pissed! all were easy up to that point.
