    2007 USAPL Longhorn Open meet report


    Lifting:


    Squat:
    237.5
    247
    257-556 pounds




    Bench:
    152.5 - 335
    167.5 missed twice


    Deadlift:
    237.5
    257
    266.5 – 585ish missed

    I think the totals is like 1436 or soemthing, its like a 80 pound PR


    My training went good up to the meet with the exception of deadlift, I had not been doing so good with it, I came real close to getting my third, and I think ti was more of not using proper technique than a strength issue. But still, It should have been an easy pull for me, and it was not. Regardless, I got qualified for nationals, and I know I need to work on just getting stronger. This may sound like a DUH type of thing, but I just need more raw strength across the board.


    As far as my experience with sheiko:
    I know that I can not pull even moderately heavy all the time, my deadlift goes to shit really fast. I knew this before I started Sheiko, but I still anted to give it a try, I thought only lifting three times a week may have helped. high volume squatting and benching worked really good, even though I missed my second and third benches, I think I was just being a fuck tatrd and not staying in the groove, my first bench felt really good, the second two felt like I had no power out of the bottom, which for me is synonymous with not using a bench shirt correctly, as I had got this weight in practice before. I really like doing two lifts a day for meet prep, and I really like having decent raw strength, and still lifting raw with Sheiko. The only complaint I have about Sheiko training is that it is kinda boring, and it can take up a fuck load of time if you are not diligent with getting in the gym and getting your shit done fast, and not taking extreme amounts of time between sets.


    I have about five months or a little less before my next meet, I want to be pulling over 600 by then and get my raw bench above 300, which it may already be at, I just need more chest and shoulder strength. my squat has progressed steadily, so, I just need to keep doing that.


    And also, I just gotta step my game up, work harder, and get shit done.

    Good work bro!

    On a side note, Im starting to realize that my bench is disproportionately high compared to the rest of my lifts. My raw bench is nearly as strong as you guys squatting 200lbs more than me. Jesus.
