1708@242, 20 yo
In January of this year, I did a 700kg/1543 total. 9 months later I did 1708. I wanted 800kg but I didn't get it this day. But hell. 220lbs on a total in 9 months is just greedy.
Weighed in 109.2. The bloat was superhuman. 3 days after I'm already back down to 105.
Squat warm ups. Errything felt good. Hit a smooth 260, but I left it late and had 4 attempt to get ready for my opener.
Squat 1: 285. Beautiful. Smooth. Powerful.
Squat 2: 300. Missed out of the hole. I know why, combination of a weakness and wrong choice of knee wraps. But it's fine. I blacked out bad after this, I'll get the full video up soon cause it's awesome.
Squar 3: 300. Missed again.
**** happens. I knew at this stage unless I pulled like 370kg I was not going to get my 800 today. But **** it, I'm an experienced competitor. Still 2 events to go. Cleared my head. Smashed down some rice and PB, and got to benching.
Bench warm ups. Felt ****ing amazing. 2 plates was leaving my hand. Pain was minimal but still trouble controlling the bar on the descent. Oh well. Hit 127.5 as my last single.
Bench 1: 135. Smashed it.
Bench 2: 142.5. Smashed it.
Bench 3: 147.5. Smashed it again.
Honestly could have gone 155. Stoked with the bench.
Warmed up. Felt on ****ing fiiiiiiire. 70 120 170 220 and 270 were blinding.
Deadlift 1: 310. Destroyed it. Even faster than my training lift.
Deadlift 2: 342.5, figured **** it, get a nice round 775kg total, and a 755lb deadlift to boot.
The best part was that my 342.5 was being loaded as the fire alarm was set off. I was itching to get to the bar and the sie manager came to shut the meet down. She put her hand on my chest as I walked forward and I looked at her and said 'I suggest you remove that.' She backed off. The loaders were slow and hesitant, so I kinda yelled at them to move the **** out of the way. Went out, set up, gripped, hips up and down and then I ****ing hit it.
Felt like sweet sweet sex.
So all up. 775kg total. 1707lbs@242. Not the dream run, especially the spastic squats, but proud that I didn't miss any lifts after, kept my cool, and still had a blast. I came second in the 242's to a very strong guy. It's nice to compete against people in open competition.
Sick progress Fuzz! That deadlift was freakin sick!
Sick strength...and hook grip!
Nice progress. What was the big change?
Upped the dose.
Nothing magical about it.
Fuck man, huge ass deadlift.

Nice. Simple and effective LOL
Great lifts. On a side note:
If I were to compete I would definitely want some Australian dudes motivating me..
