After being in the same situation you are not too long ago, I’d go back to your phenom. It’s 2 weeks out, and you haven’t touched a weight, that’s a bad spot you’re in man. Trust me.
OP, if this is the case, and you know you can work in your phenom, I’d get back in that for the meet.
For the future, though…
From the angle you’ve posted, it looks like you’re pressing straight up… Once you touch, you need to press, flare your elbows, and throw the weight towards your face. All at the same time. hah
Also, post more videos at a side angle so we can see where you touch, the angle of your arm, your line of pressing, etc…
Yea for this meet I debated about opening raw and then trying to hit a bench in the super katana but I think I would rather go for higher numbers on the bench over all. I think i get 50-100 out of the phenom so I might as well just for the better bench. Overall it will make for a less stressful day and its not a major meet so I’m not worried about placing more about having a great time and setting a few pr’s. I was expecting to do the meet and I’m happy to be able to as work has been pretty hectic. not giving up on the super just not for this meet. [/quote]
Out of curiosity, why are you using the super katana? I’ve heard that the single ply is easier to touch (obviously) and gives more pop. But the super katana is more about stopping power.
