Good work. I have no idea how you can lift in an environment like that. It looks like the plainness of a hospital ward mixed with a golf crowd. Did they provide everybody with a hefty dose of valium or what?

Nice job man, keep lifting because at 28 your going to throw around some sick numbers! Wish I would have started young.

Keep it up.

thanks everyone! i believe the USAPL national record for 198 18-19 is 1317. my total was around 1266 so im planning to break 1300 my next meet which will be either in February or March, so i have a good amount of time to train for it.

I also got to see some great lifts by Mike Tucsherer and Beau Moore

yea and i was really surprised at how strict they were judging the squat and benchpress. MULTIPLE lifters were called on depth and on the bench, the heels must be flat on the ground and head flat on the bench.

i usually bench on my toes and head up lol
