    So after training for it for the past 4 months or so, peaking at just the right time, and giving up drinking for several months :ugh: , I finally went up to Hanover PA (2+hrs away) for the APA "battle of the baddest" or something. I was a little worried that I hadn't heard anything back after sending money in 2+ weeks ago, and my calls not being returned, but i figured it was better to go than stay at home anyway, this had been my goal for months.

    Anyway, I wake up, leave the motel, go to the gym ready to weigh in at 830am saturday, and the guy at the gym tells me the cancelled the meet months ago :wtf: I saw it posted at at least 3-4 other sites, in powerlifitng USA, etc. To say I was dissapointed would be a huge understatement.

    Oh well, shit happens... I just wanted to vent somewhere, I don't think people around me understand the importance of something like this, and how discouraging it can be. There is a push/pull a few months ahead, and I guess I will shoot for that, though I am switching up to a greater hypertrophy routine so I can put on some actual mass, so it will just be for experience.

    Sorry, didn't mean to write a novel.

    Cliffs: went to a meet that got cancelled months ago, it sucks

    It's hard enough to find meets near me, I don't care if im lifting in one of the raw feds or IPF, I just want to get some experience in a meet setting so when I actually have a respectable amount of strength I don't fuck up with noob mistakes.

    yes. still hasn't called me back, though he hasn't cashed my check either :dunno:

    I'll give the APF meet that maine mentioned a shot, it's right by me, and I'm enough of a noob that I don't need a 24 week peaking cycle :o

    Sorry to hear man, we all know how hard you've been working at it recently.

    Time to use the drive and motivation to come to your next first meet with that much more determination and focus :hs:

    That fucking blows. If you don't end up doing those other APA meets there is a USAPL sanctioned meet:

    Oct. 29th, 2006 USAPL Rockview Prison PL Event
    *Sanction Pending* Bellefonte, PA

    its free... think about it.

    Did you go in and try for PRs anyway? I probably would have. I mean you were set to peak on that day, anyway... might as well take advantage of it.

    Anyway, that sucks, man. Good luck at your next meet.
