    so today was my first competition of any kind. I entered the junior flight in the 275 class. Weighed in at 263(lost like 7lbs in 2 weeks). My opener was at 335. I've done this in the gym plenty of times and last week I used it to work on legal reps. Easily got that a d jumped to 350. Smashed that and moved to 365! Never done a pause rep with 365. It might as well been 225 bc it flew off my chest. I'm stoked about my lifts. Kinda wished I gone for more but was cautious about not pausing with 365 before.

    In the pros flight they got one guy opening with 750 @ 205 and another with 860 @ 305.

    This meet is kick ass and everyone says I'm going to be dissapponted when I go to my next one bc it isn't anything like this one!

    What did you finish with, 365? How come you didn't go any higher?

    Anyway, congrats man. Those are big numbers :bigthumb:

    I finished with 365 bc I had never done that weight with a pause. I've done it a few times as a touch n go and it wasn't a strict lift. So I was slightly nervous. I think I could of gotten 380 but who knows.

    Yes it was shirted.



    Jesse Kellum attempted 820 but only got 775.

    Tiny Meeker had 960 but his fuckin sleeve blew out. I almost threw up when I seen it bc I thought his arm popped off or something.

    my hate is friendly








    I think there are a number of rules that are really dumb so I don't lift in any USAPL/IPF meets.

    It wasnt a usapl meet. It was nonsanctioned.


    They put big bands long way on the bench. I felt like I could snap my back I dug into those things so hard. They had guys using all kinda ridiculous shirts I have never even seen.

    The competition is on a riverwalk in Louisiana with 90* weather......humidity! The bench usually gets slippery so they use em to get a good grip on the bench. People still chalked their backs and used sticky spray though.
