    Yes you're right. I generally do do that but this was my first time using knee wraps in forever so it was a little more awkward.

    Wish I'd known about the deadline extension before. I went ahead and went for a PR bench today but didn't quite get it. It was probably dumb because I did a 315 bench on Wednesday (but like an idiot forgot my camera) and was trying to get it in before the deadline. I guess maybe I'll try again next Sunday.

    In case I don't get it I'll go ahead and submit this 305 bench that I did before trying the 320 today.

    I also did a 507 raw deadlift today. Clearly my raw DL is way behind my suited, perhaps because I hadn't started deadlifting without a suit again until about a month ago, and before that hadn't done it in about 4 years.

    Thanks Chris, I was hoping this might be what the judges are looking for.

    I'm hoping to max out on squat and bench tomorrow. I just hope I can find someone to use my video camera so I can get them both recorded for this contest.

    Good luck man! Worst case scenario, just try and set the camera on a bench next to where you are lifting. That's what I do when we don;t have enough people to spot and use the camera.

    Just ordered a video camera today. Hopefully it'll be here in time. We are horrible about video and/or pictures. My daughter's fourth and sixth birthdays were on the same roll of film.

    Thanks. I noticed he went for the bar when he was spotting me. I never felt any help, and after watching it I don't think he did, but I included the 320 attempt in case you didn't want to pass the 330. I understand if you don't pass it. You have to be as fair and consistent as possible with your judging.

    Well, it mostly has to do wtih using the suit to pull in for about 4 years straight and never pulling raw. When you do that you get really used to that type of lift so when you don't have the suit you have to almost re-learn how to pull. I'm just figuring that out now. For one, I have to remember to use my leg drive a lot more pulling raw whereas in the suit you can get away with using the legs less because the suit helps the most off the bottom.

    I'm just curious. Being that the prizes are being awarded as follows:

    * Best lifter by formula - $250 cash or equivalent ALN gift certificate
    * Best total - $250 cash or equivalent ALN gift certificate
    * Best squat - $150 AtLarge Nutrition gift voucher
    * Best bench - $150 AtLarge Nutrition gift voucher
    * Best deadlift - $150 AtLarge Nutrition gift voucher
    Isn't it quite possible that one person could win all of those categories? Does that mean they get $950 or equivalent in products? Or will one person be eligible for one prize, and then the next highest lifter would win one, etc.? Just curious how that will work since it's not clear.

    Yeah, someone can win everything.

    It should be biggest lifts by bodyweight... some dude that weighs 350 could win with a 1.3 x BW bench at 450 while a small guy with a 2.5x BW bench would win nothing.
    5'8" 177 (meet PRs) ALL RAW

    Bench - 290 (291) Pause reps Dead - 500 (479.5) Squat - 446 (430)

    Total - 1236 (1168.4)

    Goals: Bench - 280 met 1/19/09 new goal - 300 Squat - 435 met 11/28/09 new goal 475 Dead - 500 met 1/23/10 new goal 525

    Are we allowed to submit new videos if we have some of better lifts. I put up my meet video a few weeks ago but think I could post some better numbers than that, at least I would like to add a different bench video could I post my meet SQ/DL and do a new BP? Or is it after you submit your done?

    I don't know what the final rules are for lifts, but in my opinion, you should be able to submit three lifts each for squat, deadlift, and bench as long as the higher attempts were made after the previous ones and before the deadline. If you have some stronger efforts, post 'em up!
