So I just got home from the meet. It went pretty well.
I initially weighed in at 217, but because I had a chance at hitting a record in the 242's (the 220 record is a lot higher for junior 20-23 surprisingly), I drank a ton of water and re-weighed at 221.
1st attempt: 365, easy as hell, 3 white lights
2nd attempt: 405, easy as hell, 3 white lights
3rd attempt: 430, smoke show, 3 white lights
4th attempt (because it was american record): 450, miss, 1 white light - I thought I nailed it but apparently I paused on the way up and the bar sunk 1/2 inch before I locked it out, so they didn't count it, but I'm going to count it for my records
Now I know you guys are thinking my lift is a joke, but I was competing 100% raw (no belt or wraps) and the 430 was good enough for an American record in the Raw division / Junior (age 20-23).
I'm pretty excited.. I want to do the USAPL push-pull meet next month! I gotta say today was a huge PR for me and I couldn't have done it without you guys..
