For you guys with meet experience, are you trying to win that day, or are you trying to hit a number?
I've done 2 bench only meets, and 2 full power. In all cases I'm the only one in my category, unless I cross over to the open, and then there might only be 3-4. For instance , I just saw the amateur roster for the SPF pro/am...there is one guy in the raw 198's any age, 4 in single ply. I would consider this a fairly big meet, maybe I'm wrong.
So, are you guys happy with a "win". or do you chase records, getting on pl watches rankings, or just hitting numbers you haven't hit before?
I watch lifter rankings, and try to gauge how I compare, and then go out and hit a number I haven't hit before.
