MEET DAY FINALLY CAME!!!!!!!!!!!!
Weighed in on saturday, at 164.4, no water cut, no not eating, or anything crazy. Just did moderate low carbs that day. This is why, I will be competing at 148 moving forward.
Fell asleep around 10 on friday, slept until about 12:30, couldn't fall back asleep until 3:30, and before you know it, it's 6am, and I had to get up. Felt pretty tired on the drive down, until anxiety and adrenaline decided to show up.
A few of my buddies were competing including one of our fellow forum members, who may or may not have grabbed the wrong nose torque for my final attempt deadlift
Opened with 340 on squat felt super easy, pretty much pause squatted. Second attempt was an easy 360, and third was 385, which wasn't a grinder either. Had more in the tank for sure.
Bench was next, obviously, 135 opener was a breeze, didn't realize you had to ask them to unrack it for you, so I did it myself. Second one was 155, got Danny to help me with that, was a breeze too.
Originally was just going to go for 160, but decided to do 170, got the weight up, but forgot to wait for the rack command...
Deadlift had my nerves all kinds of crazy, this is what I came to do, I came to pull 405! 355, and 385, flew right up, and 405 wasn't even a grinder either, even with no nose candy.
I tried to grind out 415 in the warm up area after, but could only get it a few inches off the ground.
I can't believe what a fantastic day I had on Saturday. Met lots of new powerlifters, and made a friend with a young lady who is an absolute animal at lifting. I had fun screaming in support of all my other friends lifting too. The energy at a meet is just KILLER. I can't wait for August 22nd, to rock some more PR'S out, but not really looking forward to my cut starting... MONDAY, TOMORROW
Got first in my weight class, with a total of 945, and got a trophy for best female lifter as well.
