PL Meet AAU & Back Injury

Its July 22nd. Is anyone going besides me?

Currently 236 lbs minor back injury, I got slopy on a heavy dead and i’m paying for it. But before the muscle pull (middle center of back, left side of spine.), bench was 385, squat was 495, and dead was 645. Not maxing out on any of them.

I’m still going!

I’m using a ton of icy hot and rubbing my back down daily, trying to get it back in time.

Wish me luck.

Hey man, good luck at that meet. Where is it by the way?

Take care of your back, it may be a good excuse to back off for a bit prior to the meet.

If you are 100%, what do you think your attempts will be?

Dude, what are you 6 feet tall with a 100 inch wingspan? 385 bench, 495 squat and a f’n 645 deadlift?!?!?! Either you are built incredibly well for deadlifting or your squat technique could use some work.

In any case, those are some big numbers and I am sure the meet will go great for you.

I’m 6’4" ACTUALLY. And my reach is right aroudn 78 inches.

If i’m going in 100% my goals were, 455 bench, 530 squat, 750 dead.

Still hoping to get close to those…

Thanks for the kind words…
