    Good Job, That looked really strong!!! It's hard to believe you haven't gone over 900 in a meet.

    Dude that was just sick. I think the heavy band tension will help your top end a lot.

    I'm excited to see how you do at the ProAm.

    Thanks guys. All the advice u guys gave me a few weeks ago has really helped.

    My squat opener will be 840lbs, 2nd will be 875lbs for a meet PR then depending on how it feels either 905 or 925. I just want the damn 900+ squat already.

    I just swallowed my tongue.
    Being a strong teenager means nothing.

    My wrists hurt, but some people don't have wrists to be sore. My knees have tendinitis, but some people don't have legs to get tendinitis in. I seem to be going backwards with training, yet some people can't even walk let alone lift 400 pounds on a daily basis.

    Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.

    Man, I dont know dude. I mean, its your meet and your numbers. But if you want 900. I think it would be a wise choice to AT LEAST set yourself up to take 2 cracks at 900.

    Your taking 35lb jumps, so you should open around 865-870, I mean, mentally, you know you can hit at least that amount. Then take 900-905 on your second. You smoke that.... go to 930-940.

    I just want you to have 2 chances to hit it, **** happens, I mean you dont want to take 900 on a third, miss depths but come up with it and know that if u had one more shot you could of gotten lower.


    Good luck either way, you'll hit 900 I know!

    Or open around 855 then straight to 900.

    If that was 805 plus 250 top (so at least 900 at the bottom) then you'll smash 900 in a meet I reckon.

    Just gotta go do it

    Yea, i think at this point its obvious its a mental block here. 855-870 really its just ur call there, but once you SMASH your opener I think your mental block will start to crumble, and you'lll go 900 on a 2nd and SMASH that, then go to 970 and NAIL it! (960, just so my prediction is correct) HAHA!

    Holding that much weight is scary alone. I would be scared to go so heavy with bands! My biggest fear would to be shot in to the floor by the tension. Great job!
    Brad08 has some insight for people who don't understand... anything.
    This is so ****ing ******ed it's almost beyond belief. So, if you eat 3k, you will automatically gain 3k worth of fat or muscle? Incredible. And here I am eating all this food, yet maintaining my weight. Fascinating.

    You're one of those pussies that counts his almonds I bet.
