    Meet review

    So had my meet on Saturday and went ok(ish)

    Weighed in at 103kg.

    Squats
    Opener - 180kg
    - Good lift
    set my opener pretty low just wanted to get a score on the board. Miss timed the warm ups as so didnt get time to hit my last warm up of 160kg so had to jump from a warm up lift of 140kg to my opener. Felt heavy on my back because of that but hit it comfortably with 2/3 white lights. The side referee gave me a red flag for depth which I thought was pretty harsh but luckily got the 2/3 white lights for a good lift
    2nd Attempt - 192kg - Good Lift
    Jumped up to 192.5kg and felt great unracking and felt easier than the the opener. 3 white lights no drama.
    3rd Attempt - 205kg - Good Lift (meet PR)
    Again hit this pretty comfortably. Looking back at the bar speed I could probably had a few kg's left in me. 3 white lights

    Bench
    Opener - 140kg -
    Good lift
    No drama, felt smooth and easy. Again this was a conservative opening attempt. 3 white lights
    2nd Attempt - 152.5kg Good lift
    Again felt pretty smooth no drama 3 white lights
    3rd Attempt - - 157.5kg (PR Attempt) - Fail
    Hips were cramping on the set up so I couldn't get tight in my set up and couldn't utilize leg drive as well as I wanted. It was fast of the chest, but couldnt get past the sticking point.

    Deadlifts
    Opener - 220kg -
    Good Lift
    Again I went super conservative with my opener and it flew up. 3 White lights
    2nd Attempt - 235kg - Good Lift
    First attempt felt so good I jumped up to 235kg. In hindsight this is what I should have opened with. 3 white lights
    3rd Attempt - 250kg (Equal PR Attempt) - Fail
    Given how fast the 2nd attempt went up I thought I would be ok to take the 15kg jump. I didn get as tight in my set up as I should of, and as a result it came off the floor ok, but tweaked my back just as it got to my knees. In hindsight 15 kg was just to big a jump. On another day I might have been able to grind it out.

    So I finished with a total of 592.5kg, didn't place and didnt qualify for Nationals next year, but after everything that has happened these past few months it was great to be out on the platform and meet some great people on the day.

    Here are all the attempts from the day;

    I gave it my best shot, I tried to leave nothing in the tank and that is all anyone can do. Time for a deload week then get back on it.

    I'll have a look when it comes out. I struggled with the last one, almost didn't make it to the end, had tendonitis in pretty much every joint lol!

    I still think his 4x per week is the best they’ve done

    Was that the one c ouple of years ago when you squat bench and deadlift everyday?

    Yep. About 12-20 reps per big three lift per day, +assistance and a few random accessories thrown in.

    I thought some of the minor inclusions were pointless; I.e two weeks of rack pulls 1-2 times each week, but the core premise is the truth for me at least; frequency builds strength.

    I remember seeing it now but never ran it. Was to concious of not having enough time to complete the sessions. Problems with training before work!
