I had my meet this Saturday
I weighed in Meet morning at 260 after having breakfast, slamming a RESULTS Shake with 2 coops of Opticen a good bit of water. My scale at home first thing in the morning had me at 255.
I went into this meet with some lofty goals. To be honest I didnít get any of them but I did walk a way with more USAPL experience that will give me an edge come August for USAPL Nationals.
. I opened at 575. This popped up. I then went to 640. After watching the video I was very pleased with the quality of the lift. I was hoping to go 660 on a third but I opted to wave my third attempt since this meet was purely for experience. Plus a fly shit on the bar I may have died LOL

I went into the meet feeling great about my bench. I hit PRs each week and on my last heavy day I hit 430 for 6. I opened with 440 and felt great. I went for 496 twice and flat out missed. No clue why? Felt strong just wasnít my day

I opened at 625 then hit a safe 700. I was hoping to get that 496 bench then take like 725 for a third for new American record. After doing the math I would have needed 775 to get that. With those stiff USAPL bars that is a number on a different planet for me right now.

So my second USAPL meet is down and its time for Nationals in August. Big Thanks to Chris and Daniel form Atlarge. I have lived off of Nitrean, Results, Opticen, BCAA plus and ETS. While training for my 3 mile mud race warrior dash that I did last weekend my legs were beat to hell and keeping my body fueled was more important then ever.
