First Meet Finally Under the Belt


#1

Had my first meet Yesterday! Competed at 275 (Weighed in at 270) in the junior age division (20-23). Went 6/9…broke 3 state records!

Squat:
650- 3 whites
705- 3 whites (new state record)
735- no lift (went for national record attempted heard a judge yell up and shot up got 1 white and 2 reds for depth had more than enough strength for the lift…my fault for not using my judgement…learning experience)

Bench:
450- red lighted (racked to fast…old habit)
470- 3 whites (new state record)
505- red lighted got half way couldn’t finish the lift)

Deadlift:
615- 3 whites
645- 3 whites
660- 3 whites (think I may have slightly strained my pec in this lift …not sure still have full mobility just hurts a little)

Total- 1835 (new state record)

Had alot of fun and learned some things. Now time to take a weeks rest then start slowly preparing for the next meet in April.

thanks! think the depth issue also comes down to I need different knee wraps…i zoomed in on my video and i have no more room to go down because they seem to bunch and are to thick, without the wraps depth isnt an issue. First meet helped me learn what i need to work on and train
