    Big Iron Gym Spring Open Right up

    Arrived in Omaha at 8 on Friday morning and headed up to Big Iron gym to weigh in. Weighed in at 240. Then headed out with a portion of the SOS crew and grabed some breakfast and carbed up to get the weight i had to cut. The rest of the day consisted of eating and BSing with the guys. I think i weighed 250 by the end of the day. Arrived at the meet area the day of the meet at around 9. lifting started at 10 and the meet didnt end till around 9.

    I opened squats with 589lbs and made my way into the meet. Took 617 for my second attempt. I ended up dumping. I had the straps too tight on my suit and coulnt get good air. Took the same weight again for my third attempt. Missed it again. Came out of the hole fine, but fell forward halfway up. Wasnt too happy with the squats, but at least i was in the meet.

    I opened Bench with 451, smoked it and one of the judges asked if there was any weight on the bar. LOL. Took 473 for my second attempt adn smoked that also. For my third attempt i took 501 and made it look like an opener. Fast and easy. Some of the people there told me that i should have opened with that. Was very happy about that.Thats a 126lb meet PR from my fist meet bench which was 375, and a 50lb PR from that gym.

    Started Deadlifts at around 7:30pm. I opened up with 492 and pulled it easy. Then for my second i too 537 and pulled it with relative ease and that was a PR. Then went for 578 on my third and final attempt. Pulled it all the way and had to fight for that last inch to lock out. Locked it out, and got the down comand just in time casue i felt my grip slipping in my right hand. I felt i had dropped it out of my hands an inch before it hit the ground and was fearing i might get 3 reds. I got 3 white ligths and a huge PR on DL. I was so happy about that.

    Went 7 out of 9 which is good for me considering its only my second PL meet and put up a 1668lb total. Huge thanks goes out for the entire SOS crew for getting my training dialed in and getting me ready for the meet. The handlers we had were just phenominal getting us wraped up and getting out gear on and adjusted and handing off on bench. Just 100% money. Dont know when the next meet is, but hope to get my squat better so that way i make more than just my opener.

    Who is this Jim Grandick guy? Never heard of him but he was neck and neck with Frey until the DL, and even that wasn't too far off. He put up some ridiculous numbers too!

    Is this thread a write up for the 275ers or something? LOL

    great job Sean, there is tons more to add to your total, specially on squat. Will help you grow a set of bigger balls and watch that lift take off. LOL j/k man, it's a lift that you seem to just now start developing so I see a lot coming out of it fast man.

    Congrats on a great meet.

    Oh, and wow Shawn Frankl was best lifter. Now I'm staying back on topic.

    Congrats on the HUGE improvement on your bench. What did you do in training that helped you get it?

    Who's Jim Grandick? He's one of the best powerlifters on the planet and has been for years minus a brief injury hiatus.

    Yeah, i really pussed out on squat. Dam Metal suit shot me out from under that bar like a cannon ball cause i had the straps too tight and i shot my hips forward. Now i know why Falcon was happy to get rid of that suit. IM glad i was able to come back and make all my bench and deadlift attempts. I told you that i would get that 500 bench.
