just finished my first meet of this year, and did pretty good job. it was on a friday, after 8 hours of school, and it went from like 6-midnight, so i think it was really impressive how well i did compared to my old pr's. i was 225 the day before the meet, so i didnt eat dinner the day before, or breakfast the day of, and i weighed in the morning of at 219.7, so i was very relieved.
i was also pretty sore. i didnt think i was gonna set a pr in anything, much less up my total by 50+ lbs.
squat was good, opened 385, did my usual atf squat to open it up, all the other lifters gave me the "wtf why are you going atf in a meet" look that i get. 2nd squat was 425, still about 4 inches lower than i needed to go, and i smoked it. at this point i had 10lbs over my pr, and the highest 3rd attempt for my weight class was 350, so i was already 75lbs above my competition. so i went a little wild on my 3rd. i asked for 470, and again went about 2 inches below parallel and smoked it. i think i might have got 500 if i stopped at parallel. so all in all i set a 55lb meet pr.
bench was also great. the benches were narrow, but oh well. i opened 235 and smoked it. 2nd lift 265 smoked it. 3rd at 285, went down and had good pause, on the way up the left arm was about 2 inches higher, so i caught myself and stopped the left arm and caught up with the right, and finished even. so my bench pr went up 32lbs.
deadlift made me hate myself. i opened 450 and i swear it was the easiest 450 ive ever pulled. my 2nd attempt was 500, and it was about 11:15 at night. i was tired as hell but i smoked it. i needed 545 for a 1300lb total, but i went for 550 for the even number. i couldnt get it up. i got it about 3/4 up my thighs but couldnt get my back back. i struggled for about 20 seconds because it wasnt a grip issue, but i finally gave up and threw it down. im still pissed i didnt get it, because i just got 535 in december. so i had to settle for a 1255 total.
i won my weight class of 15 people by 260lbs (it was a high school meet) and now i just have to wait for mid march to see if i can get a 1400 total as the state championships.
btw, all lifts were raw w/ only a belt.
