    600 raw bench this weekend with video

    I was verfy dissapointed with my SPF performance a few weeks ago. I knew I had the 600 in me. So I decided to compete this weekend. The 600 actually felt surprisingly easy. This is 600 in my second weight class.

    Check out my log in the next few days for a full write up. I learned a lot from this experience, including my miss from a few weeks ago. However, I am completely spent. I just needed to get the vid out there because I am so proud of this accomplishment. I know there are not many lifters on the 600 raw list in two classes. The number of lifters who have done it in their forties has to be even smaller.

    Thanks to Chris, the rest of the ALN guys, and everyone here at WBB for being so supportive.

    Thanks guys, it was a good day. Although, I feel like I have been hit by a Mack Truck. Competing twice within a month has completely fried my central nervous system.

    Scott, regarding my speed work coming into the meet. As I can recall, Dave had me wave up weight, then had me add chains, then it was bands, bands and chains, then double bands. However, for the last three weeks I just deloaded. I have learned from most of my competions in the past few years I am much more successful deloading 2-3 weeks before a meet. I am going to do some more reflecting and then discuss it further in my meet write up.

    Phenominal speed Vin!

    I blinked and missed the 525!

    Love watching your set up.
