I had my second PR and American Record breaking meet in back to back weekends today (3-3-12)! Last week I had my best equipped squat performance ever and today I had my best raw (without kneewraps) meet ever. I was in the 55-59 308 raw division at the APF NGBB Classic in Kennesaw, Ga. weighing in at 288 lbs. in what will probably be my last meet as a 308. Here are my results:
Opener - 501 good - American 55-59 record.
2nd - 600 miss - cut it high.
3rd - 600 good - PLWatch current ranted #2 M2(>50) #6 M1(>40)
Opener - 374 Good - American record.
2nd - 402 Good - Tied meet PR raw bench <15 months after shoulder replacement.
3rd - 418 miss - A little too much to finish.
Opener - 551 Good - American record.
2nd - 600 Good - #1 M2(>50) #13 M1(>40) - Tied raw meet PR.
3rd - 633 Miss - Got about 1/2 way up.
Total: - 1603 - #1 M2(>50) #6 M1(>40)
Felt no trace of the back injury from last week's meet. The rest week worked. I feel like I had an excellent meet considering competing single ply last weekend! Very happy with my comeback so far!
Our two 14 Y.O. lifters had very good meets. Christian Blackmon (13-15 132 div.) squatted 297 - benched 181 - deadlifted 297 to total 775+ single ply.
Josh Thrasher (13-15 165 div. raw) squatted 225 - benched 135 - deadlifted 325 to total 685+ (All established American records). Our next meet will be May 26-27th APF Masters, Junior, Teen Nationals in Baton Rouge, La. I'll compete multi-ply there.
