    Looked great! Right side was sagging a bit I think due to hand placement. It was a bit far out from your thigh at the top, but other than that HELL YAH!!!! 700 raw at 255 is no joke!

    Great pull, but if you don't work on technique and form, you're gonna eventually blow out those lumbar discs. You have amazing strength, now its time to focus on form.

    The dip should have allowed that lift to get at least 2 whites. If a judge isn't used to a dip like that then I could see it not passing but I have seen lifters from certain big gyms much higher...

    Hip and Leg pain/tired all the time?

    This is an odd sort of question and I'll try not to ramble, but I don't know who else to start with. For example, my doc says it is training too much/heavy making me feel this way.
