Well, finished 5th at the NOTLD with a 750lbs pull @ 229lbs bodyweight. Went for 810 on my 2nd and pulled my right hamstring (which has been bothering me for a few weeks and I was hoping some rest would be enough to have it heal and still pull big, False on that one). I sweat out a ton of water weight for the 24 hour weigh in and wasnt completely back to normal when warm-ups started. Oh well, I lost 51lbs and got stronger in the process. I just wish it would have showed at the meet. 705 was a speed pull. 810 felt like nothing in my hands and in the first 8 inches off the floor. It sucks but it is going to be all the more impressive when I put some weight back on and absolutely dominate the Arnold.
That being said, the meet was awesome. I was very happy to see and talk with Tom Eisman again. He is one of the classiest guys I have ever met.
I was pretty fired up from the very beginning. I got to do all of my warm ups with Andy Bolton. Honestly, I dont know how he fit into the gym at the high school. The guy is enormous in real life. It was a little demoralizing watching him do my opener for his last warm-up but it was pretty awesome getting to hang out/ lift weights and talk about deadlifting with one of the strongest humans on the planet. I've seen a ton of comments about how bad his pull was on the internet. I'd love to see some video's of a smoother 964lb raw deadlift.
So, thats over and it was an awesome experience. Finishing 5th with just my opener in a stacked competition like that made me feel a little better about sucking so much. My hamstring still hurts pretty bad but whatever, I need to get stronger...
