had my first meet this past weekend, it was quite the experience and I had a lot of fun. I didnt hit all my lifts, but I went 5 for 9 so atleast I went over .500. I had a a lot of first meet jitters and nervousness, check out me constantly shaking my legs haha. I have to consume something else than coffee next time, it just makes me anxious and jittery.
For squat this was my first time squatting without a mirror, so I was happy to hit depth on all attempts! Bench press I was the most aggravated at. My second attempt, I started benching before the command and I just gave up on the lift. Third attempt I did the same weight, 295, which I’ve hit a million times in the gym no problem. I got it off my chest easy and was confident I was going to hit it, but my wrists collapsed, I’ve never had that happen before, you can see my right wrist lose stability. I guess I’ll have to invest in some wrist wraps, because I definitely do not want to drop that weight on me in the gym. For deadlift, holy hell I was exhausted by the time these came around. 2nd attempt 440 went up easy and felt smooth, but when I put it down I was completely drained and dead. 3rd attempt I really wanted to hit 475, just broke it off the floor, I had no energy left in me. Probably could of hit 450 or 460, but oh well. I can’t wait for my next meet, I’ll have much more preparation next time, and I’ve gotten my feet wet so hopefully I won’t be as nervous.
feedback/critique is much appreciated! thankss
