Sorry things didnt go as planned. But now it's time to get back on the horse.
BTW, is that an Ace or a Pro Squatter?
Lones, good job yesterday....How did I miss that eye! I did see the one on the forehead, but didn't want you out of the zone so I didn't say anything.
You're right, that meet was not well run...weird for an SPF meet...I think the whole expo wasn't well setup well at all. The demos they were doing on stage behind us didn't have an audience at all. I would be surprised if this is put on again next year.
Look at your first lift, I think it actually was that you didn't wait for the squat command and that may be why the rack took so long....
PM me your email and as soon as I have my videos/pictures downloaded I'll forward to you.
I think the judge fell asleep on your first squat. You were done and should have got the rack command. It sucks you had to take that twice. You would have gone over 500. Pulls looked strong.
As for your performance, I guarantee it was 99% because of the weight drop. I think some people are just amazing at it and it doesn't affect them. I drop a few lbs by manipulating my water/diet and my legs feel like jello on the platform. Somehow by deadlifts I feel pretty good, but by then my total is shot. If you want to go 275 I would train a bit lighter so you don't have to drop as many lbs or just gain some weight and fill out 308's. Just my opinion.

Great job yesterday Lones! I am proud of you! You have incredible discipline and determination. You have no where to go but up in this sport!
Do you think the weight drop hurt you? Will you try that again?
Did not notice your eye yesterday. Wow!

and surpisingly, at the end of the day thursday, my legs felt like jello. thats the only body part the felt like that. it felt like the day after a ME squat day.
And most SPF meets are NOT like this! The last meet in June there were 2 monolifts in the warmup room and the comp monolift in the meet area. Jesse even let me warm up on the meet area monolift becuz the warmup room ones didn't go low even for me (ha,ha). Don't be negative on this one...learn from this one, that's what you cut the water for, correct? I bombed out the first meet I cut water weight....the second time I did much better and also didn't have as much weight to cut...it is a learning experience.
That being said, no reason not to try some other federations also.

Sorry I didnt make it Saturday bro.I scored free last minute Vols tix from a buddy.Congrats on the lifts.The meet in Feb is what Im lookin at for myself.
you know the invitation is open for you to come lift with us at the rush, for free. the only thing you'd have to pay for is the trip, i'm not sure how far it would be for you. we train at the one out west, close to cedar bluff and the mall.
PM me and let me know a good day and time for you, and we will figure something out.
there was even a gun show in the same building. what else can i say but, Welcome to Tennessee.
i did end up scoring 20 samples of redline, and even more N.O. xplode's.
wouldn't use either of them if i had to pay for em, but they were free!
Yeah a ref beat up a corner dude.One of the trainers I use to work with's husband had an MMA team there. Its on youtube under "Ref Ko's corner guy".hilarious
nice lifting bro... really like how relaxed your deadlifts look... lol. The first two lifts looked like there hardly wasn't any weight on there. Get that grip up and your good to go!

Damn sorry for the delay, but awesome job at the meet, big guy! You did great. The blood shot eye is definitely more badass than a medal. Regardless of how you expected to do, any meet is great because of the experience you gain, right? Seemed like you had a lot of fun and learned a lot, too.

Holy crap! LOL that ref laid him out!
Definatly not the way a ref should be acting but I guess if someone had to throw a punch that'd be the way to do it
