I competed last Saturday at the APF Michigan State Meet in the AAPF Raw 198 LB class. I finished with a 1383 total and two state records but was a little disappointed in my squat performance.
Warm ups for squat were kind of rushed. I hit my 390 opener fairly easy but felt a lot of tension on my quad/hip right after. Went for a 5 lb PR and a new state record with 440 and got it but it felt like shit so I waived my third attempt.
Bench was about 4-5 hours later. Back cramped up on my opener of 292 but I got it easily. Jumped to a PR or 319.5 and then missed 330.
Didn’t pull until 10 o’clock at night. Was worried if I’d even be able to pull with how much pain my quad was in but I rolled it out constantly and put about a full tub of DMSO and Equi Block on it.
Opened with an easy 551, jumped up to a 5 lb PR and new state record with 606 and finished with 622, also a state record. Overall went good injury and 16 hours aside. Pretty sure I strained an oblique, either that or I have a hernia. Excited to compete again and set some more records. Finished with a 1383 total, would have liked a higher squat but I can’t complain too much.
