Night of the Living Dead results - 6th of 25
had a blast as always at alex's meet. this one had a completely different feel though. all the hype actually came true this year and it was a great great show. bolton was a huge crowd draw and the competition was exciting! Meeting andy bolton was pretty cool and he was actually super humble and very nice.
my day went like this
normal warm up
135 conv and sumo
315x2 sumo and hook grip on out
briefs and belt on
635 - good - lil wobbly at the top
675 - good - felt smoother, got in better position. hook still felt solid and i knew i was getting 7 for sure
705 - XXX - i was sadly mistaken haha. was really surprised when it just stopped at about knee level. not too dissapointed though since this is the first time i've pulled anything heavy in gear with a hook grip. also didn't put my suit on backwards like normal and thats how i usually miss when do that. oh well.
had a great time!
training with the gf for a raw (gasp!) spf meet at the end of january starting now. feels good to have some kind of direction in training, also just going off a plan betty ann is (mostly) putting together so i don't have to think about stuff.

main stuff thats happened
hurt my back while in the lead of my last highland games and had to pull out
have worked up to 355x5 on squat with 2x10 at 300 with a loose belt. all was real easy so i'll start pushing more.
bench did 275x5 and 225 2x10 just as easy in the nude

so back is feeling the best it has in quite a while now.

Meet day - RPS 6-29-12 Shit turd, pennsylvania
did a good job fighting off the fever and head and chest congestion for the amount of time i had. emily stayed on me with the meds and such. weighed in at 206lbs
1st 840 good - deepest round of squats i've ever seen judged at ANY meet, including usapl. i was amazed but everybody stepped up their game and got down passed 2nd and 3rd.
1st 485 good - felt good
2nd 520 miss - right shoulder crapped out on me, speed off the chest was great but can't lock anything out when my shoulder is out of place. very disappointing.
3rd 520 miss - same thing, just couldn't recover.
deadlift - felt very dead energy wise, sickness was catching up with me.
1st 635 good - felt light but didn't move as quick as i would like.
2nd 685 good - nice 5lb pr here, tore pinky callus on right hand and finally got to use the taping technique for that in a meet.
3rd 700 good- very satisfying pull. mentally waved as i went by several sticking points that i had missed this weight at in the past as i cruised by them all to lockout.
2025 total @ 206lbs qualifies for xpc semi finals and won best lifter of the meet.

Just saw you were a member here in the last man thread and put together who you were. Glad you didn't take me too seriously warming up for the deadlifts. Nice pulling displayed. Sure you will get the bench worked out with the shoulder next time.
haha no worries sir, don't know if i've been accused at taking anything at a meet too seriously. enjoyed it!
Hey Derrick it was a pleasure meeting you bud! Very impressive pull! Hope the handoffs didn't screw you up too bad

Good job at qualifying bud. At least you know what to expect depth wise at the semi's.
Just received a call from my boss yesterday and it looks like i won't be having a job past august. obviosuly i can't afford to take any time off for the pro-am so i won't be going this year. very bummed about the whole situation but things will turn around.
Sorry to hear about the job Derek. Real life can suck sometimes. Very impressive pulling at the meet.
