I'm sorry. I suck. I came down with some horrendous flu out of nowhere. Started Thursday night but right now I'm bed ridden.

I really really wanted to compete with you guys but unless I feel better by tomorrow, I don't see it happening. :[

I should've gone for it Thursday. So sad! T_T

I'll try sleeping it off... will have a better idea of my condition later tonight to see if I can try for Sunday.

Being out benched, in pure weight let alone Wilks, by a little guy on here drives me nuts. Chasing you down on bench is gonna be like chasing down Staci on Deadlift.

Did my final go around this morning.

 

BW: 236.2

 

Squat- 495, 525, 535

Bench- 315, 350

Deadlift- 475, 565

 

Total - 1,440

 

 

 

Ugh you just destroyed the difference between our deadlifts. I was only .2 wilks points behind on your first round. 

 

This may be the year to out deadlift you

NICE!

 

I'll be ready for this in three 1 month cycles! That should be exactly enough time to compete in the next, next competition.

 

I'll have to do DL/BP only though, as I currently don't have a way to squat. :(

Nice work! Are you going to do a write up of your experience in your challenge thread or anything? I always like reading those while I prep for my first comp (hopefully in May).

The iron never lies.

Yea!!!! Well done!!!

I AM going the distance

 

'Cause all I wanna do is go the distance. Nobody's ever gone the distance with Creed, and if I can go that distance, you see, and that bell rings and I'm still standin', I'm gonna know for the first time in my life, see, that I weren't just another bum from the neighborhood.

My short write up is HERE.

I definitely found that going and watching a bunch of competitions beforehand gave me a great idea of what to expect, and what the rules and calls were. Definitely recommend doing that to anyone who can!

Just finished my attempts. I'll post on the spreadsheet later tonight.. but for here are my numbers! Sorry in lbs will convert to kg on spreadsheet.

Lost 2pounds being sick so I'm 62kg (137lb)today not 63kg...

Squat:
1st- 225lb
2nd- 230lb
3rd- 235lb
This surpasses my previous pr by 10lbs! Have videos of all 3 squats..
Bench:
1st- 115lb
2nd- 120lb fail
3rd- 120lb fail

Deadlift:
1st- 245lb
2nd- 250lb fail
3rd- pass
My grip is the limiting factor. my tiny hands are too small to do hook grip.

Again..I'll update in kg. :)
