My Quest for 1100...


Recommended Posts

Yea, no #3 will get you at least an additional 50-75 posts/replies. The vast majority will be to join in on the mockery, and the rest will be lolz.


(Shit, I've just been minding my business lately and I get mentioned)


There are debts to be paid still for your shenanigans.

Perfect time to threadjack Drazen's challenge.


Lmao my shenanigans? I'm usually the on the receiving end of most shenanigans (there's a joke about being on the receiving end that's dying to be made)

SOOOOOOOO it seems I may have been sandbagging a little...or at least being a little conservative...or lacking confidence....not sure which yet.  


PL meet #2 was this past Saturday in Flagstaff, AZ.  We had originally planned on driving up Friday night but there happened to be a Blue Grass music festival in Flag that weekend and all the hotels were booked up.  So we were up at 4am and got on the road a little before 6.  It was about a 2.5 hr drive from our house to the event.  My sister-in-law and her family drove down from northern AZ to meet us so it was a full family affair.


The meet got off to a disconcerning start as I weighed in at 120.75kg, much to my surprise and annoyance.  On my scale at home I was 6 lbs under the limit 3 days ago.  But whatever, not much I could do at that point.


The lifting, however, went exceedingly well!  I mostly stuck to my original plan and went 9/9  


Squat 1: 135kg/297lbs

Squat 2: 160kg/352lbs

Squat 3: 165kg/364lbs <-- 9 lb PR!

I was disappointed in my choice for the 3rd lift after it went up as easy as it did.  I probably could have added 10-15kg to it.


Bench 1: 130kg/287lbs

Bench 2: 145kg/320lbs

Bench 3: 150kg/331lbs <-- 11 lb PR!

Felt good, 3rd lift was grindy but a smooth grindy.  


DL 1: 175kg/385lbs

DL 2: 195kg/430lbs <-- 5 lb PR!

DL 3: 200kg/441lbs  210kg/462lbs <--37 lb PR!

I was originally going to go for 200kg on my 3rd lift but after my 2nd went up as cleanly as it did, I decided to sack up and bump it up to 210.  Definitely the right decision as it was another smooth grindy lift.  I probably could have added 5-10kg more.


Overall I completely exceeded expectations with a 525kg/~1155lb day.  However since I completely blew my challenge goal right out of the water, time to re-assess where I am.   


Figured I could post the "official" results now that they have been available for a month =)
