    Squat and dead me
    I guess last week took its toll. Felt like hell today. 500 has never felt so heavy in my life.
    Took one more with 595 after and decided to shut it down for the day before I hurt myself any further! Need to go back into recliner for awhile sleeping. I will be ready meet day no doubt just a bunch of things pilled up one today.

    As far as pec and shoulder go they both feel fine(knock on wood)! No complaints! Right on par I guess with what I figured or wanted a month after injury when I decided to do meet! Said I would live to hit 365 so right there!
    My sciatic however is killing me! But I have plenty o time to get it under control enough to have a good meet. Weight has been up and down from 262-270 so need some stability . Thx for asking Hopp

    Well 20 weeks after a pec tear I never had repaired and 2 months of back and hip issues meet day finally arose! I was going to do this meet no matter what!

    Squat - warmups felt good last warmup was 600 nice and easy
    Opener - 665 - felt easy 3 whites
    2nd. - 715 - slow down felt hips and lower back on way down - 3whites
    3rd. - 730 - threw knee wraps on for this one. Super slow down like I had gear on, back and hip issue tend to make me search for depth and my grove- honestly squat was 1 inch high probably - but I got 2 whites so good.

    Now to mental struggle- BENCH
    Warmup ups went ok- everything felt light but by now back was so locked up I couldn't get up off the bench myself
    Opener-350 - super easy
    2nd. -380. Felt ok but as I got closer to lockout I can feel the weight shift towards my good side
    3rd. - 410 I went for broke here may have had 400 but without leg drive was too much.
    Finished with a 380 - this was a huge mental struggle I have been able to hit 405 for last 20 years so not being able to open there in public was humbling.

    Now on to pull-- I did my warmups and was struggling to get down to the bar so decided to token at 315. I had a pt who trains at or gym work in me after warmups(Jim dart) and between attempts tone worked on me with a speed stick.
    315 - struggle to get down - weight was a joke - struggle to weight down.
    Tone talked to me at this point told me to push on and do one more
    625- well got down a little easier and this was easy weight also.
    Tone came over right after and asked me well- I need 695 for pr total so of course said screw it 700
    700- weight flew to knees and the. Fought to lockout- thank god for quick down command- 3 whites

    1810 total- 10 lb meet pr! Shit proud if that today- all the shit I worked through to get there! I'm very happy. Now I can take some down time and heal up. No weight on my back until December at earliest!
    Thank you to Jersey Iron for all support and motivation over these past few months. I could do nothing without my team

    Thanks Hopp.
    as of 11/24/12- with no real sense of direction or rush to get back to a meet I decided to throw briefs on yesterday. Haven't had briefs on since 3/3/12 they were tight as hell.
    barx 8
    145x5
    Briefs on (trying out something)
    325x2
    415x2
    505x2
    595x2
    685x1
    775x1x2sets 1 set my knees were all over but close to depth. 2nd my knees were tight but mile high.
    Deads
    315x2
    405x1
    495x1,2 called
    been having some bad and hip issues. It was sort of a tester to see how i would feel day after, couple days after and week after. I honestly have to say my hips feel alot better today (sunday) as i write this.

    Standing cable crunches 3x15
    Leg press 2 x60 against green bands 4 different foot positions
    Leg ext 2x10
    Ok. still don't know if i'll stay in gear. I will probably try on a shirt or 2 tomorrow night. That as much as i hate to admit has me scared!never have had much issues with being scared under weight. I trust my crew, but not sure how pec and shoulder will feel. it's been 22 or 23 weeks since tear. Tune in monday

    Hey Judas , thank you. I love raw training but my body is falling apart and needs some supportive gear for awhile. I will be back though.
    Bench night
    135x5
    225x5
    315x3x3
    Old rage x 2ply on ( pretty lame numbers here very humbling)
    405x2 3brd
    455x1 2brd
    495x1 1 Brd
    545x1 1 Brd
    495x1 2 Brd
    Rather than focus on all negative stuff. Here's some positives:
    1) I learned I can move my grip out to normal in shirt and doesn't hurt.
    2) I need to offset grip. Move my strong side in 1 more finger than weak side.
    Thank you to Tone for teaching me the second one. Thank you to Tone and all JI guys for support and time tonight.
