    Scott Weech and I weighed in this morning and I was pretty light at 240. I'm already back up to 246. So far I feel pretty good, except for my shoulder that I injured last year. Not sure if I'm sleeping on it wrong or not, but hopefully it won't throw me off tomorrow. Scott weighed in at a slim 326!!! My openers tomorrow are 622-391-672. Not sure, but I think Weech is opening his squat with 793...WTF! They are using equipment from West Cary Barbell and let me tell you, they make some very nice equipment. Jeremy Hamilton, Jay Nera, and Kade Weber are all looking massive as hell!!! Really looking forward to tomorrow.

    Meet Report

    Raw Unity 6

    Well, I don't really have much to report. It was a super fast meet and it all ended in under 4 hours. The turn out was no where near as big as the past. We only had 15 total lifters. All the equipment was top notch. A big shout out to West Cary Barbell, that guy makes some kick ass equipment. Now to the important stuff...

    Squat
    All my warm-ups felt good and I didn't feel any hip or quad pain. I finished with 575 as my last warm-up. My form felt spot on. I did feel some pain in my right knee after my second to last warm-up. Not sure from what, but i'm good now...I think. Here is how my attempts went...

    1st attempt: 622-good lift
    2nd attempt: 661-good lift
    3rd attempt: 672-no good

    My 3rd attempt felt great walking out and not heavy at all. So I thought it was going up, boy I was wrong, lol. I have alot of work to do, something is missing and i'm going to find it.

    Bench
    Same thing, my warm-ups felt good and fast. I finished my warm-ups at 345. My shoulder and pec felt fine. I wish I would of opened heavier but glad I didn't, check it out...

    1st attempt: 391-good lift
    2nd attempt: 418-no good...WTF!
    3rd attempt: 418-good lift

    I have no clue what happened on my second attempt, but it wasn't moving. I came back on my 3rd and smoked it! Same thing with my squat, something is missing and I have to work on this lift hard.

    Deadlift
    The same, warm-ups went smooth and easy. I pulled 605 as my last warm-up. Here are the attempts...

    1st attempt: 672-good lift
    2nd attempt: 722-good lift Meet PR!
    3rd attempt: 733-no good

    Last attempt just wasn't in me today.

    Total
    1801-Not a PR, but i'm still happy with it.

    A big thanks to my wife and kids for their continued support. Thanks to Scott Weech and Scott Lamb for their help and support as well. Everyone here who supports me and pushes me, thank you!

    Another big thanks to Chris Mason from AtLarge Nutrition and Ken Anderson from Anderson Powerlifting. Thanks guys!!!!

    27 weeks out from my next meet, stay tuned!!!

    Great work, Brian! Still a huge total considering you're bouncing back from injury. Plus you've hopefully learned a bit more of what you've got to focus on for next meet.

    Thanks alot Gaz! Yeah, I'm pretty sure I know what I need to focus on. One thing I'm adding is conditioning. I ended up buying a prowler so I'll be using it to push and pull.

    Solid total and a meet PR on deadlifts. Overall, not a bad day! Think of it this way, things didn't work out as planned and you still hit a 1801 total. C'mon, that is good work no matter how you slice it!

    Thanks alot Tim! I'm very pleased with the results considering the issues I was dealing with. I wish I didn't have to retake my 2nd attempt bench on my 3rd, I possibly would of been able to total a little higher. But these things happen. I always have a number in mind that I want to hit, but once your there you need to be smart about the numbers your calling and go by feel. That day I feel my numbers were picked spot on. Now it's time to get a plan together for the next on.
