    Nothing wrong with pushing it a little! 435 looked great. Good speed for a second. 450-455 would be a nice third

    Haha, yeah but aren't you opening up more on the squat? lol. Thanks April, I made a promise to myself that as long as I get my 2nd attempt pull, i'll be going for 700 no matter what.

    Bench - The 410 was easy AND you got really loose during the pause! If you watch your 435 you do a much better job of staying tight at the bottom. 410 is a perfect easy opener.

    Squats - Looked strong as hell on all of them! Good luck bro! Can't wait to see the total you put up!

    Thanks alot Tone!!! Yeah, I got very loose on 410. I'm not sure if it was the longer pause or not. I agree, I did a much better job staying tighter on 435. Thanks again!!!

    You look ready. Your squats looked deep and easy. Deadlift looked easy too. Just rest up and crush it at the meet.

    Yes, but not higher than your 3rd attempt I'm sure, lol. And it's with wraps. Without wraps I'd probably only open around 600 and aim for 660-670 on a 3rd.
