Video from meet
After the meet I essentially had a 3 week layoff and lost a decent amount of strength. It took 6 weeks to get my strength back in the same area.

Overall the meet went well. Unfortunately I didn’t get but 1-2 hours of sleep the night before. Although I was in bed for around 7 hours.
Easily made weight weighing in at 130.5 around 730pm Friday night. I actually need to try to cut it a little closer to 132, as its not really fun trying to stuff myself afterwards to gain weight back. Now that I have some accurate scales to use, it should be easier for me to be just under weight. Immediately after I weighed in I consumed two drinks consisting of around 115g of carbs, 15g creatine, 8g BCAA, and half a scoop of whey isolate. Got home and had…-fruit smoothie, 4oz beef liver, ton of sweet and russet potatoes, white rice, and around 10-12oz of tilapia.
Warm ups pretty much went according to plan and the weight felt pretty light, so I felt confident going in. Ran into a couple guys who were at my first meet, and they were kind enough to put my wraps on for me each attempt.
281 - Went up about like I thought it would. Felt like I could’ve stayed more upright though. I’ve never had my wraps so tight so maybe the strong rebound caused my hips to move up too fast.
304 - I pinned this as my max realistic attempt. It was a good choice as it was a bit of a grinder. Good lift.
314 - This was “go for broke” and I missed it. Back folded at bottom when I was rebounding. I got my planned attempt so I don’t really care that I missed it. Just would’ve been icing on the cake.
Everything went wrong on bench. Warm ups were terrible as I started to late. Everyone was already doing heavier weights so I wasn’t able to drop down like I wanted. Warm up ended up being some push ups, 135x5x2, and 185x2.
209 - Usually can confidently double this weight, but it moved pretty slow. Still got it though.
220 - Knew I didn’t have 226 in me, so tried this and failed…twice. Second time I decided to do close grip for shits and giggles and almost locked it out. Wouldn’t have counted though as I pressed before the command. I paused completely and anticipated the command versus actually listening for it. It was frustrating, but I’m well aware of my bench woes which is why I already had a smolov jr plan for it after the meet. I shrugged it off and instead looked forward to my bread and butter…the deadlift.
I made damn sure I had plenty of time to warm up for this. Did my SMR and warm up lifts exactly according to plan. Warm ups were flying up with ease so I felt confident.
391 - Flew up once I got it a couple inches off the ground. Good lift.
424 - Again, this was my realistic max attempt and a good choice. Was pretty slow off the ground but I got it up. Good lift!
449 - This was for the 132 record (beating 446), Couldn’t get it off the ground but just like my last squat, it would’ve been icing on the cake.
