    No worries Kev, I'll have my girl with me.

    Seb, are you staying up there or driving up and back on Sat? I'm going to drive up sat but stay there and go home sunday.

    Coke, I know. I don't smoke a whole lot at all. But the bossman had Macanudos last night, and I can't pass that up.

    You need to train her to give you your lift off.

If I'm cruising, I'll take anywhere from 350-370, depending on how strong I feel. But that's getting ahead of myself. I'm going to list my DL opener at 455 but I really want to total 800 so if I only get my opener on the bench, I may go 425 and then jump to 485 instead. If that doesn't happen and I get at least a 345, I'll go 455 then right to 500. Depending on how the 500 goes, I'll either try for 525 or I'll just pass. Usually if I have to grind one out, I'm spent and won't be able to pull another. If the 500 comes up fast, I'm in business.
    Drew.. sounds like an awesome plan.. I hope you get nothing but white lights!

    And.. get off those cigs.. I would have never thought that you, with your awesome diet.. would be a smoker..

    Even a little is too much.. and unless your new GF smokes, she probably is hiding the fact that she doesn't like your breath.

    OK, I'm off... good luck..

    Amazing how adictive smoking is. Untill you realize how much it affects you, and you quit once and for all.

    Good stuff Drew, the plan for the meet sounds very good.

    Kev, that would be sweet, but I don't think she could lift off more than the bar. lol. I'll just hook up with someone to do the liftoff when I get there.

    Seb, that's cool.

    And no worries about the smoking. My girl does smoke and I usually have one or two on the weekends but that's all. I'm not one to get addicted to anything.

    Chubo, preach.

    Dave, indeed.

    Less than 2 days to meet time. All I've done this week is some light band work for my rear delts on Monday. My right shoulder hurts like a bitch, probably because of the cold. I'm not happy but I don't thikn it will have a negative effect on my lifting. I haven't been to Southside in 3 weeks and I can't stand it. I can't wait to get back there next Friday.

    You still got a cold man? Have you thought about trying to steam it out? I haven't ever had any luck doing that, but you never know...

    Thans Rob, I NEEDED THAT!

    Seriously though, when it's game time I won't even think about the aches and pains.

    I don't have a cold, I'm feeling pretty healthy. I was referring to the cold weather.

    Thanks for the support everyone.

    Nope.. Drew is going to a Push-Pull (BP & DL) meeting somewhere in Conn. I think in the APA or APF.. I'm doing a full PL meet up in Vermont in the 100% Raw federation.

    GL again Drew..

    Thanks everyone. The meet went AWESOME!

    I weighed in at 212, didn't really matter to me. Lots of nerves up until my opener on the bench. 316 which was an absolute smoke show. It was so easy. Went to 341 for a PR and killed it so I decided to go 356 and I may have stalled for half a second but it still moved pretty fast.

    I was nervous about my opener of 456 for the DL, but it went up like an empty bar. Went to 501 as planned and smoked it. I thought about 516 but opted to go 526 instead and missed right at my knees as the bar drifted away and my pecs both cramped up.

    857 Total, 3 huge PRs. Great day. We went out and tore it up that night. I feel so spent right now.
