    Hoping so Hopp.
    Today's plan was to work up to opener and that was supposed to be it didn't happen.(funny story)
    free squat with briefs
    barx 5
    145x5
    255x3
    345x2
    435x1
    525x1
    all of those felt kind of off last 2 heavy
    suit on straps down
    615x1
    705x1
    795x1 straps up but slower than weeks past
    here's fun part was going to take 860 with knee wraps, well i wasn't paying attention and i didn't see any one load plates so told them to throw on another 45 each side.(must have been why mike gave me crazy look. well turns out it was like 955 or something and i didn't even un rack it.

    so after that decided to pull. figured would work up to 600 and call it.
    225x1
    315x1
    405x1
    495x1
    605x3 previous best was 600 for 3 so pr. may have been able to squeeze another 1 there but to close to meet.

    weight today was 253. feeling much better besides the tired part. breathing much better now.

    That would of been awesome if you got it. I read somewhere that in training Vince Anello was planning to pull 820 but they mis-loaded the bar with 870ish and he still pulled it which was a PR I believe. Good job though and props on the deadlift rep PR!!!

    bench nite
    barx5
    barx3 with monster mini
    135x3 with mon mini
    225x2 with mons mini
    315x2 no bands
    405x1 (2brd) saving shoulders for opener felt little heavy
    shirt on was a tight boiled it .
    495x2 (3brd)
    585x2 (2 brd)
    655x1 (1brd)
    705x1 opener was struggle to touch
    750x1 (1brd) pr maybe possible second attempt.

    Was very happy with shirt tonite considering i wasn't feeling it early. Going to need this bench to put up a good total.
    weight in morning is steady @252-253. I can live with this. Most problems from last week gone. No more shirt til meet!

    Wow, that looked smooth bro. If your opener feels good then I would definitely go for that on a second.

    squat and dead day
    ok. had whole lot of crap on the brain and going on at gym today. we were there about 45 minutes before we even started squatting. 7 guys instead of are usual 4 so tseem to take for ever to get to the big weights and then when we finally got there we were down to 3 guys so not ideal day but with all that happy hit opener to depth or really close without any problem.
    free with briefs
    145x5
    255x1
    345x1
    435x1
    525x1
    615x1
    suit on straps down
    725x1
    815x1 straps up pretty close to depth
    865x1 there nor very close.

    deads
    225x1
    315x1
    405x1
    495x1
    585x1
    called it there. was no need to go on.

    monday bench will be raw. all openers are finished. thought as of now (as long as I feel good meet day)
    openers will be 860/705/615 whcih will put me in good spot to hit the numbers i'm looking for.

    Yea I keep trying to get him to go to the 275 class then I won't have any competition in the 242 class.

    But Tim is a master at loosing weight for contest and then still doing great at the meet.
    You are going to have some big numbers Tim, keep in the Zone like you did this past Saturday and it will be an easy meet. You've never looked better physically, mentally and emotionally than this time!
    Good Luck!

    ok. did some light training with bands and light weights this week just for blood flow and keep my mind. I'm feeling good and mentally I'm feeling good too. weight was 253.8 this morning. will start the cutting process sunday. with an early friday morning weigh-in. Openers should be 860/705/625. hopefully that is the nice start i need.

    He's napping. He made weight with a bit of a struggle. Weighed in and is now a healthy 250 after gorging himself. Then the carbs hit him and he felt like shit so he's sleeping that off. He'll be ready to go for tomorrow. I can't wait to see him destroy this meet.
