    I have him pegged for a 1830 total at the minimum, 1850 for a good day, and closer to 1900 on a great day!

    Thanks April. The shoulder gets a little sore from squatting so i'm hoping that it doesn't bother me that much next week before I have to bench.

    So far 11lbs...and this is what pisses me off. Ever since I've been training in my garage, it's been hard to gain weight. My bodyweight was floating from 250-251. Now all of a sudden, my weight jumps up to 253-255, lol. My last meet I dropped down from 253 or 252, I can't remember, but I'm sure I'll be fine and I'll make weight.

    Yep, eleven pounds should be fairly easy. And you don't have to worry about gear not fitting if you don't put it all back on in time for the meet.

    The cut should be fine. But it'll be nice when I don't have to worry about cutting weight
