Thanks guys. First meet was very fun, very educational, tragic, and successful. But it was an unsanctioned fun meet so no biggie.
I messed up my squats and should have hit 385 but due to hydration, sleep, nutrition and nerves, I only hit a clean 320.
Bench was worse.
But I redeemed myself with a solid 475 pull (first and second were 410 and 440), which was a 40 lb PR.
First real meet in March with RPS. Looking for 385/225/500. And this time I have a 24 hour weigh in. (I’m in the 198 class and 46 y/o).
I have my sights set on some national and world records in deadlifts for my weight/age class over the coming years, but will continue to lift and compete full power.
Here’s my pull (already posted in another thread):
