    Hope you're taking it easy Brian

    Any news on the suit?

    Just relaxing it up bro. Judging the way the material is ripped, its still supportive, so im going with it. I thought about opening with the Boss and switching suits, but it would be a pain in the ass. If it does totally blow out, ill get the Boss on then. Im not going to worry about it. Im comfortable enough in the Boss, and it should still have enough in it to get me close to the numbers I want.

    Had a 6lb cut this week, or so I thought. Weighed in at 222 (220 on my scale), so actually an 8 lb cut. 5 miles on the stationary bike and a half hour sweat in my truck and was good to go. Time to rehydrate and chill until meet time.
    Also if your bored tomorrow, head over to PL Watch as they have the Ustream link for the meet live.

    Very nice job Brian. I caught the benching and pulls. I cant believe I missed that mega f*cking squat!!! Well done on a hard days work. Have a good night man. Hope youre taking it easy with a few pints

    7/28 UPA Iron Sport Meet

    Going into this meet, everyone knows of the suit issues with the Leviathan. Left glute blew out while taken openers. Too close to have a new one sent, so I came up with an idea to use heavy fishing line to sew it, the duct tape over it. I must say, the suit held up beautifully.
    Squats
    Warmups felt great and everything was moving fast. Basically took plate jumps up to 685.
    1st attempt- 745, 3 white lights. Felt light unracking it, and was smooth sailing from beginning to end. Just used knees sleeves for it.
    Video


    2nd attempt- 805, 3 reds. Decided to just use the sleeves again instead of wrapping. Felt ok unracking, but knees got a little forward coming out of the hole and pushed me forward. Simple fix.

    3rd Attempt- 805 2 white lights. 40-44 UPA American Record. This time I wrapped my knees and felt a little unsteady when I unracked. Once I got going, I hit the hole and it came up nice.
    Video


    Bench
    Again warmups felt good and fast. Worked up to a 525 1 brd.

    1st attempt- 565, 3 reds. GRRR. A lift ive hit plenty. Was pressing stright up instead of back all of a sudden. Just bad form.

    2nd attempt- 565, 2 whites. A fucking grinder!.. Again, just bad form. Didnt ride he sleeves at all, and muscled it up instead...blah.
    Video


    3rd attempt- 600, 3 reds. Pffffft. Stapled on chest. just didnt have it today.

    Deadlifts
    I tweaked my back pretty good on the first bench, and afterwards waiting around to pull, it really started to tighten up. I stretched it out as good as I could, but it was pretty sore. I was to open at 525, but I dropped it to 500 just to ensure a total. Warmups were sore but bearable.

    1st attempt- 500, 3 whites. Easy peasey. This gave me my Elite total.
    Video


    2nd attempt- 530, 3 whites. This gave me a 1900 total. Nice round number. Easy again.
    Video


    3rd attempt- 575, 3 reds. Shouldve been good, but once I popped it off the floor, I felt my back and kindve pussied out on it. slowed down, the tried to get going again, but died at my knees.

    So overall a good day. 1900@220 for an Elite total. 80lb PR on squat, 50lb PR on bench, and 2 UPA Master 40-44 American records in Squat and Total. I know what I need to do, and now Im gunning for my 2050 Pro total. Look out boys!

    Thanks a lot Bri! Very happy all considering. A little disappointed with how the bench went, but I know what went wrong and should be an easy fix. Just leaves me room for a huge total!

    '99 problems but my squat ain't 1'

    ^ new Tshirt?

    Outstanding performance and an American record if you don't mind!? Absolutely on for the 2k plus once you get the technicalities you were talking about ironed out.

    Soooo, when is the next meet? I know you know, lol.
