    IMO, your doing fine. 2 out of 3 lifts are moving down the right path so thats good. I had that same problem when I was training in gear. My squat went from 875-1030, my bench went from 525-640 and my pull went from 665-685, lol. So don't let it get in your head. Like you said, something clicked so hopefully that will get your pull moving. I'm sure the raw training will help out alot with both your squat and pull. I'm looking forward to your meet results!!!
    Thanks Bri. Im very happy with the other 2 lifts for sure. Just need the pull to be at 600 at least. Its pretty pathetic right now. But im not sweating it. Itll get to where I need it soon

    Speed sessions are great. They beat you up too though.

    Thats great raw benching B. Def see the 405 go up sometime in the summer
    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
