    That's great to have your lifts peaking before a meet. Should be a good one for you.

    Feels really good to have it peaking.

    Yessir!

    On a side note, kind of what John O touched on, I went through a phase of not progressing on the bench, I was stuck at 265-270 for a while. I switched back to an old protein I WAS taking, and progressing quite well with. After that, I started progressing well again, and I've added 5lbs to my bench through the last 4 weeks, and with the way 280 felt, 285 is close.

    Had a good little session tonight, was my last session before the meet Saturday night, freaking can't wait!

    Shrugs
    225 x 10 x 4 sets
    315 x 10 x 2 sets
    405 x 10
    495 x 8

    Rows
    192 x 5 x 5 sets

    Wide Grip Lat Pulldowns to belly button
    62lbs x 12 x 3 sets
    52lbs x 12
    42lbs x 12
    32lbs x 10
    42lbs x 8
    52lbs x 6
    62lbs x 4
    72lbs x 2

    Bench Press
    Bar x 20
    135 x 6
    165 x 5
    165 x 10 with 2 second pause each rep

    Close Grip
    135 x 5 x 2 sets

    DB Military Press
    35's x 15 x 2 sets

    Dicks Press
    85 x 8 x 3 sets

    Hammer Curls
    35's x 6 x 3 sets

    Tate Press
    35's x 6

    Shut it down here, felt some tightness in my left bicep and shoulder blade, so decided that was enough. There was no reason to push myself tonight as it was just a light workout before the meet. I have to say, I'm proud of myself for pushing through everything I've encountered this year. I would have likely given up on everything last year, but my mentality is so much stronger, my will power and my trust in myself has skyrocketed beyond anything I would have imagined. I'm excited about how far I've come, and the progress we've all made together through everything. With this new mindset and ability to push myself, the sky's the limit.

    Mate I am stoked to hear about your mental strength man! That's a huge part of the iron game, it changes your ability to deal with so much more than just your training. Looking forward to the meet!!

    It's been a huge part that I've been lacking for a long time. Everything has gotten better, even missing a lift has been improved because now I step back and think of what I did wrong, instead of just getting pissed.

    Thanks a lot bro, I'm hoping that in a year, I can look back and share my story of losing 200lbs, naturally, no drugs, no surgery, and about my journey in weight lifting and help others on the same path, would be awesome.

    Mark you should be really proud of yourself. I've definitely noticed that your confidence and mental strength has gone up and for good reasons. You have accomplished a lot just in this year alone. I know you have had some setbacks and family issues and you just appear to come back stronger than before both physically and mentally.

    Thanks a lot man, it really helped having friends here to talk to and message back and forth. It helps talking to folks who have gone through the same things as I have, or know someone who has and can offer insight on what's going on.
