I know ya derp... I was asking how close you think you can get to your PR or beating it.
I could probably hit 560 - 570 with light wraps right now.

Kinda wanted to max out with my conventional stance today. 585 felt pretty slow and shitty so I scrapped that idea and did some heavy sumo work. By far the heaviest I've ever pulled sumo; the 600 felt pretty damn good despite being a little slow. My back feels great, I think my CNS is just fatigued right now, the heavy squats earlier this week completely wiped me out.
Found out the scale I've been using is off so I'm at least 5 pounds lighter than I thought I was. Going to double my post workout carbs and try to put a few pounds back on these next 4 weeks.

Got super light headed right in the hole with the 450 front squat. I didn't have any spotters so I kind of freaked out and bailed without really trying. Kind of pissed, I know I had it in me, 415 felt like a joke warming up. Same thing happened during the last set with 415, wanted to hit 3 but felt like I was going to pass out during the second rep. Dunno why but I've been having problems with getting light headed/dizzy with front squats lately. I'm not having any problems taking a breath before the lift, it just seems to hit me right in the hole and then goes away once I'm close to lockout.
I've been reading up on your journal over the past few months. I just haven't posted a damn thing.
You've been killing it over some months now.
Your focus has been killer as well. Real consistent, even while battling some nagging pains throughout. Keep it up.
Thanks man. Appreciate it.

Nice PR on Military; form is slowly getting better, I notice a big difference when I really focus on squeezing my glutes and keeping my back tight. Speed bench was super fast.

Back felt great today, I could have pulled 585 for 3 but I wanted to leave some in the tank for 610. Should have just taken the triple and called it good; couldn't even break 610 from the floor. Started gassing out pretty quick after that, Conventional deads felt good form wise but my body just didn't want to lift heavy shit.
I need a de-load pretty bad, but my meet is 3 weeks from Saturday. My plan right now is to absolutely murder myself next week, take it a little easier the following week, and then take the week right before the meet off completely. I'm hoping that'll give my body enough time to fully rebound.
Sounds like a good plan of attack...watch this space, gonna be nailing it in a few weeks.
Thanks Coke, I sure hope so!

Well, the 580 wasn't pretty but I got it. Something was throwing my form off, I think my hips on one side were tighter than the other side; one knee buckled in and the other stayed out like it should, was kinda strange. Wanted to rep out 515 but something still felt off so decided to rack it after the first rep.
Soooo, 580, that's a PR right? By 30 lbs? Or do you not count wraps as a Raw PR... Otherwise, looking like a bish in here as usual.
Yeah that was a PR. I count them as "Raw with wraps". I really don't wrap them super tight so it's not like I get a ton out of them, but I still don't consider it 100% raw.

I knew today was going to be bad after I hit 400, still tried 440 anyways lol. Everything felt heavy as shit. Far overdue for a de-load as I've said; one more heavy pull session on Sunday and then I'll finally take it easy until the meet.
wtf, the fact that you even tried the 440 while not really feeling it, speaks volumes.
Thanks Coke. Though it probably just means I'm an idiot, lol.
Tried pulling heavy on Sunday and it went pretty badly. Body is just exhausted. I can tell when I get close to that breaking point because all my joints start crying and my lower back starts bothering me a lot.
Shoulders today. High intensity, but I didn't do any heavy power movements.

Welp, I came down with the flu this morning. Hit me pretty hard, haven't been able to keep anything down. They haven't cashed my check yet for the meet entry so I messaged the promoter to see if I could withdraw. There's absolutely no way I'm going to feel good enough by Saturday. Pretty fucking pissed but nothing I can do.
There's another meet in November I may end up doing instead. We'll see.
Too bad about the setback...you'll bounce back and overcompensate bro.
That's the plan Coke.
