    I don't want to spoil it for him. He texted me today to let me know how he did. I'll let him tell you guys. All I'll say is I'm happy he asked me to work with him again for his next training cycle!

    2012 R.A.W United North American Championship Meet results

    Week of the meet
    The weight cut wasn't as bad as my last meet. But I do think it hurt me this time around. All week I didn't do anything besides sleep and hang around the house. I didn't do anything to keep loose and mobile. This was just me being lazy. I wanted to get my back adjusted like I always do, but I didn't. Oh well, lesson learned, time to move on.

    Squat
    Everything was going good while I was warming up to squat, until my last set of 575 when my groin became sore and tender, WTF! I don't think it's anything major, but it did hurt to squat just my bodyweight. Doesn't matter, the show must go on, lol.

    1st attempt: 625-Good
    2nd attempt: 665-Good for a 10lb meet PR!
    3rd attempt: 675- No good

    Bench
    Warming up for the bench went pretty well. I'm not a fan of the benches they use on the platform or warm-up area (very soft pads) My back was cramping up and my shoulder was still acting up from the OHP injury a couple weeks ago. It didn't hurt while pressing, so thank god for that! My last warm-up was 365?.? (I think) and it moved pretty good.

    1st attempt: 420-Good
    2nd attempt: 430-Good
    3rd attempt: 440-No good

    Deadlift
    Everything felt pretty good warming up to deadlift. 405 is loaded on the bar, so I went and grabbed my belt and powder so I can have it ready for 495. When it was time for me to put my belt on, I noticed that I GRABBED THE WRONG BELT FROM MY HOUSE!!! I grabbed my old belt which happens to be my very first powerlifting belt when I was 17 years old. So of course it fit like a charm, lol. It must of brought me good luck!!!

    1st attempt: 655-Good
    2nd attempt: 705-Good for a 5lb meet PR
    3rd attempt: 720-Good for a 20lb meet PR

    Total
    1815 for a 25lb meet PR

    A big thanks to my wife and kids for supporting me and having my back! My wife is the best, she carried our 8 week old baby around for most of the day and still managed to get video of my attempts. Also, I want to thank Tone Barbaccio for his support and for helping me with my training. I have been working with him since January of this year and he helped me put 91lbs on my total in just 9 months of working with him. Thanks Tone, I really do appreciate it and i'm looking forward to working with you again!!! Last, I want to thank everyone that follows my training logs and youtube videos for their ongoing support.
