Meet Results + Video; Michigan APF Championships
Great meet this weekend. Probably had the largest turn out ever for this meet, easily 60 - 70 lifters. The venue was amazing as well, props to Detroit Barbell for getting everything set up and running a smooth meet.
I weighed in the day before at 200.6. I would have tried to sweat out the last couple pounds if I were going for a National Record, but I wasn't, so I really didn't give a shit, I was hungry as fuck and just wanted to eat. Definitely bummed I didn't make 198 but in the end it doesn't really matter.
Went 8 for 9, just barely missing my last deadlift at lockout (grip). Totaled 1623 Raw, which is Raw Elite for 220's (finally), and would qualify me for the 2014 RUM.
I ended up with meet PR's on all 3 lifts, though my squat was pretty disappointing. I wasn't able to squat heavy the last month leading up to the meet due to knee problems and probably lost a good 20 pounds off my max. All in all I was very happy. I finally got my Raw Elite total, and my bench is making great progress again.
