I feel really good under 300 so I was hoping to make 275's. However, I don't think it's in the cards this meet.

6/4 walked outside for 20 minutes
6/5 chaparoned a field trip and walked around all day, however, I ate like I was going to the chair. I weighed 298 this morning, that will surely change tomorrow morning. Let's just say I carbed up for tomorrow's ME Bench day.

The 810 and 835 flew. It was a really good workout especially considering it was my first workout to the chest in my shirt. However, I need to workout with heavier weight on a regular basis. I was spent after my two reps. I should have gone for a third attempt. That's something I'll work on this summer after my meet.
What is your goal for your meet?
Thanks. Considering this is my first equipped meet in over three years I am hopeful for a pr which would be anything over 800. I still have much to learn.

"I still have much to learn" You are a very humble lifter Vin. A trait that is truely to be admired. A guy whose done what you have and been lifting as long as you have and still says that he has alot to learn, just kinda puts things in perspective for a young guy like me. I hope to keep learning as you do. Keep up the good work big guy!
oh and congrats on the BW - 299. Great work!
Thanks guys. I look forward to sitting back in a few years and watching the young guns like Travis skyrocket past my numbers.

Trap bar deadlifts 5x5 325

I feel as healthy as I have felt in a while. I have finally smartened up to the point where I don't do exercises if they are going to hurt me. My knees and back are healthy. My repaired bicep feels great. The partially torn or strained bicep is finally healing up. I just have a tweaked left wrist and left quad I have to watch out for.
My scale said 290 this morning, but I was pretty sure it was 10 lbs. off. Now using the scale in the nurse's office at school it might only be 6 lbs. off. However, it is just too much to figure out right now (I will bring my scale to IPA World's and step on it after getting off their scale so I can finally have the true difference). So I am simply going to increase my calories using healthy food choices for the next few weeks to come in a little fuller. Unlike most meets I will keep up my cardio and conditioning. I need a better number in the 308's anyway before I hit the 275's.
Nice work hitting that 835 on the bench, sir!
Thank you sir

I needed to fit a quick workout in before massage therapy. I got this done in 30 minutes. It was a bit lame, but at least I got some work done.
20 Minute walk outside
On a side note, I think Matt is taking this mayor of Rhodestown thing a little too seriously.
I'm a little late to the party but awesome pressing with that 835!
Great work Vin. You are a sexy beast.
60 reps wow

Felt pretty good tonight. I had a few setup issues I needed to handle. This was my third week in a row in the shirt. I don't feel that I am conditioned for three weeks in a row in the shirt just yet. That's why I only worked boards. Next week I will just figure out how I will warm up with the boards before the shirt. Then it's off to IPA World's. Thanks to Rhodes, Jonah, and Double D for the help tonight. Next week I get to sit back and watch E-bol and Tee Tee work their shirts. Life is good.
Went to the diner after the gym. Very good stuff. The food was alright, but we got to see some great milk cannons. Mmmmmm milk does a body good. Tomorrow Donnie Thompson is in town squatting. I am going to try and catch up with him.
Very nice, Vincent. Very nice. I am humbled by your comeback. When I finished cranking off to the picture, I'll keep laughing.
Great work tonight.
amazing work vin,,God bless
