I've been training for the APF/AAPF Illinois State meet in March, and I decided to do this Jakked Hardcore Push/Pull meet last minute as sort of a tune-up. Awesome gym with a great atmosphere; anyway here were my results today:
Competed in the AAPF Open Division at 220lbs
Opener: 365lbs - Good Lift (loose Fury)
2nd Attempt: 405lbs - No Good (Katana, barely touched and beat the press call)
3rd Attempt: 425lbs - Good Lift
Opener: 520lbs - Good Lift
2nd Attempt: 600lbs - Good Lift
3rd Attempt: 650lbs - No good (no attempt really)
So for a last minute meet, this went fairly well. I finally touched something with the Katana, and the 425 went up nice and fast.
I pulled in a single-ply Champion suit () and the first two attempts went great. For some reason, I thought it would be a good idea to throw my Ace briefs on for my last attempt at 650. Horrible idea! I couldn't even get down to the bar, I ended up being hunched over and didn't even break the floor. Oh well, 660 is the goal (triple BW) for the State Meet in March.
Here's a vid of my two good Deads (left the camera in the car for bench).
Nice Video. both lifts were real nice. You made it look easy
Run? Are you crazy? I wouln't even run for the dinner bell! I don't remember seeing running as a part of Push/Pull.
Congrats on the lifts. Those looked like you had ALOT left in the tank.
A friend of mine, Paul Harris, took my APF Open IL State record in bench at that meet. I called him just after he lifted. He said it was a good meet and had alot of fun. I expected Paul to hit 800+, but I guess it didn't happen at this meet. Maybe at the IL State meet in March.
Can't wait 'til tomorrow, 'cause I get stronger every day!
Those Deadlifts looked GOOD! Your opener looked like a warm-up!
