Very long week running into this meet on Saturday. I weighed in at 230 on Sunday night. However from there I was sick till Tuesday and literally ate nothing but peanut butter and few eggs those 3 days while continuing to water load aggressively. This was miserable as you would imagine.
Either way come Wednesday I was feeling better still not 100% by any means so I pretty much just continued on with the same diet and pushed fluid to 3 gallons. Thursday I had woke up at 220 pounds and poped 10mg of lasix every 4 hours up until 10pm. At 10 pm I re weighed in at 211 pounds. I didn't have access to sauna so I turned my bathroom at my hotel into a steam sauna.
Sit in a sauna suit and began the sweat process 20 in 20 out. At 2am I was 204 and was having some of the most insanely painful cramps and nausea. Which was horrible as I began to dry heave my entire body would lock up to the point I just laid in the floor until I could move. I was about to call it at this point as I just could not see the extra weight coming off. I sat in bed with ice all over me head, neck, upper back, and abdomen for about a hour and half. so at 4am I got back up and continued forward. At 8am I had finally hit 198.5 pounds. At 9am I had to strip completely and just cover my nuts and weighed in at 198 exactly.
Immediately began rehydration and by 9pm I was 222lbs and woke up the morning of the meet at 219lbs.
Squat 3/3 Was feeling very physically strained and really felt I was going to have a terrible meet. But the second I got the weight on my back I couldn't believe how light everything felt. I called my Squat opener at 560 smoked it was a joke, 580 same and then 600 was my best squat of the day and had a easy 10-20lbs left on the platform. My best Squat at 220 is 585 on the platform so this is a Meet PR of 15lbs at a weight class lower. Also my first EVER 3x BW Squat. Next goal is 660 at 220.
Bench 3/3: Felt good I tweaked my lower back at some point so made setting up a bit harder but none the less 320 easy, 340 was stupid hard not sure why, 350 was slow but very easy. Thats a 10lbs PR at any BW on or off the platform. Actually 5lbs more than my best training TNG.
Deadlift 2/3: I wanted to set my elite in stone (1471 for 198) so I took a very easy 530 pull and killed it, went 570 next was very easy, and then decided to be greedy and go for 600 pull and sure enough just couldn't push my hips through at the top was very close even closer than before but should have went 585 and tied my all time meet PR at 242.
So considering what the week before had in store and being two weight classes lower than my unsanctioned meet 2 months ago I am very happy with this. I broke 2 big prs and barely missed tying my 220 pull by 5 lbs.
