the whisky report:
Long long day today, meet was stacked with lifters and flights moved slow. Here is what I did:
Bench 639 3 whites, 683 no lift x 2. Got outta groove entirely, and mentally I just have a tendancy to overthink second attempts. Need to get over that.
Deadlift 655 3 whites, 705 when the same as my second and third bench attempts. The weight got up to my knees and I stalled. I had plenty of strength but the pscyhological part just got to me.
Overall happy though, last meet in February, my first multi ply, I bombed out completely, unable to get an opener of 610 in at all. So there is significant progress. I definitely feel like 705 in bench and dead are easily in my reach, just need to get smarter in prep and not pscyhologically defeat myself before I even have the bar in hand.
oh and some video will follow
