I had my very first meet today, IPA event held in Newark NJ. I went in with one goal, to break the current record for my age and weight class. Probably not the smartest idea as everyone told me to just go in and have fun for your first meet but I enjoyed and much prefered training with a very specific goal in mind... and today it all paid off. Overall the meet was one of the best experiences of my life. I met a lot of cool lifters and the camaraderie was awesome.
Opener: 365 - good
2nd attempt for the record: 390 - good
3rd attempt: 400 - good
4th attempt: 405 missed lockout
Record stood at 387lbs for 18-19year old 165lb Amateur, my goal was to break the record and the go over 400. I posted here earlier about weather I should compete in my single ply or get a double ply and in the end I just stayed with my trusty single ply Katana and it got the job done.
EDIT- 3 lifts all on youtube in one video
