    Trying to get alota volume in on RAW bench work and get the blood flowing and help repair. Will not max out RAW but keep the weight light and good bllod flowing.

    I am very sorry to hear about your loss. It shows a lot of heart to go in there and put it all out on the platform under those circumstances. Lifting in a meet is very mental and things like that make it damn near impossible to perform. Congrats on the elite total.
