WOW!!! Another great national meet by NASA! I had so many negative strikes going against me, but I was committed to competing at this meet. I strained two of my rotator cuff muscles a few months ago. This did affect my confidence level a little and only a good 4 week training cycle too. This is the main reason I didn’t use my Inzer Rage X at this meet. So, I have gotten ART and started getting physical therapy. I have several more appointments this month and next month too. I couldn’t sleep because I was so nervous about the meet.
I woke up twice in the middle of the night. Then, my daughter woke me up at 3:40 a.m. and wanted to sleep with her parents. I just got up for good and let my daughter sleep next to my beautiful wife. I left home at 6:00 a.m. for a 3 hour drive to Columbus, OH. Warm ups went terrible!! 360lbs felt like 500, but the platform brings the best out of me. I opened up with 457, 2nd attempt 473 and 3rd attempt 485. I thought about trying 501, but decided no because I didn’t want to risk it. I weighed 218.5lbs. The video should be loaded onto my youtube site by one of my good friends this week.
The physical therapy, art and great supplements helped me to break a world and american record. Also, I was on a team call TEAM POWERHOUSE and got first place too. My next meet is July 19 and I’m competing in the curl event only. I would rate my overall bench press performance on a scale of 1-10. I would give myself a 8:) Thank you sponsors for your great support!
