    That would be nice..






    Right, next meet is another raw one in June. Goal is 1607 total @ 242.. that's elite according to some feds lol. It's a very lofty goal considering my best raw lifts combined only come to 1475, but I think it *might* be doable

    Hoping to push my lifts up to around 585/320/630 (at around 255-260) by mid-february in the short term

    Hey mate,

    Just checking in here since I cant get on MT. Nice numbers you are throwing around. Saw your 2011 goals out onthe PL forum. So youre going to get back into equipped?
    This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy - George Bernard Shaw

    Eventually yeah. I'm really enjoying raw right now, and definately need to get way better raw #'s, but want to hit at least 1 meet in full gear in 2011. I don't think 900/500/600 would be too far out of reach by year's end multiply (what I'd need for elite at 275, 242 is less)

    Good to see you posting

    Right, so here is my plan for the next little while.

    Aiming to drop a little bit of weight over the next few weeks, hopefully ending at 265ish on feb 15, and I'd like to hit high 500's squat (I've very gunshy with my squat right now since the meet, but ideally 580ish belt only), 320+ paused bench, and 630ish deadlift.

    Take the next 8 weeks, focus on dropping more weight (hopefully get to mid-high 240's) while holding as much strength as possible

    Then 8 weeks into a meet where I can hopefully hit my raw elite total at 242 (probably need to drop a bit of water, but the meet is only a couple hours away and i can weigh in the night before). I'll need 1607, which will probably break down to roughly 600/350/650, with another 7lbs somewhere lol. If I'm right about the problem with my bench training, I really think I'll see some BIG progress there in the next few months. And I'm still trying to convince myself losing weight will eventually help my deadlift bahaha
