I noticed that you have the bar out closer to your fingertips when you squat. Have you always done it like that? I started putting more emphasis on getting it into a similar position and it feels a lot better.

It's stems from a lack of shoulder mobility. It happened once I switched from high bar to low bar.

I'm actually planning on working my hand position after my meet to fix it.

Squat:

Attempt 1: 600lbs - Good lift

Attempt 2: 635lbs - Good Lift

Attempt 3: 650lbs - Redlighted on Depth

Bench Press:

Attempt 1: 385lbs - Good Lift

Attempt 2: 405lbs - Good Lift

Attempt 2: Passed

Deadlift:

Attempt 1: 635lbs

Attempt 2: 685lbs

Attempt 3: 715lbs - Redlighted; Gassed.



I totaled 1725lbs

I weighed in at 194.4lbs Friday morning, and got back up to 205lbs relatively easy in 11 hours.

Here's the video of 3rd attempt Squat:



I passed on my 3rd Bench Press attempt because I re-strained my pec after my first attempt. I wasn't going to total at least in the 1700+ range if I didn't go for at least 405lbs.

I need to figure how to get an extra gear in the tank for my 3rd attempt Deadlift. It's the 3rd meet in a row where I miss 700+ because of the 8+ hour long meets.

After the results get updated onto PLWatch, I'll be officially in the top 10 for the 198's.

That's pretty exciting.

My plan is take the the week off to heal up. I fracture my big toe on my right foot during meet prep when I dropped a 100lb plate on it, I just got a cast for it. I'll let my strain heal and I'll slowly get back into the swing of things.

I'm done competing for the year, and my next meet will probably be Raw Unity.

I thought so too, but the 2/3 of the opinions that mattered thought otherwise.
