    Heavy squats today...gave me some confidence so hopefully it'll help at Nationals next week. Last sets were a little high I think but not too bad. I have them on video and they would be close to passing...depending on judges I think....

    SQUATS:
    45x10
    135x5
    225x3
    315x2
    405x1
    475x1
    495x1
    515x1 <----PR
    515x1 <----PR
    *1st set was for sure a bit high...so took another one a touch deeper. Tough but I could do it. Who knows...depending on the day I'm having at Nats...maybe I can hit it or even 520....or maybe like last time I'll bomb and not even hit 495...grrrrrrr.

    BENCH:
    45x10
    135x6
    225x3
    225x3
    225x3
    225x3
    *tried to keep these easy and fast

    Why the hell are you pulling deadlift and squat PR's so close to your competition...??? I hope they were easy at least. I'll be seeing you there, i'll be watching Wednesday, getting my coaching out ov the way by Tuesday hopefully.

    Did poorly at Nationals...not where I wanted to be. Travelling for a meet is new to me and it screwed me up royally. Squat depth judging was really odd...high lifts were called good, low squats were red lighted...very inconsistent.

    Placed 6th...ugh...should have had 4th easily. My bench sucked and I had nothing when it came to pressing...should have had at least 15kilos more than I got. Ugh. Live and learn I guess....it was fun none the less.

    Little surprise with your bench... those refs were being utterly fucking BRUTAL with the pauses. Fuck me... one full session had to deal with FULL no-exaggeration 1-second pauses, every lift. One poor guy held that sucker on his chest a full TWO seconds before getting the command. The real miracle was that he still got the lift. In a decade ov being at regional, National and many World meets, i have never, ever seen such brutal reffing. The whole week. Fuck.

    Great learning experience, a lot of it is 'timing' too, and that includes who the judges are and who runs the meet(s). You should do well moving forward, just stay on top of the training schemes - leave no question for 'em bro.
