    Bench was a mistake. If I did not DQ I would have come first even with the 340 bench (opener).

    Unfortunate though cause lifting my head does nothing...But rules are rules.
    Some of the rules are bullshit but you just gotta learn them so you don't get reds for something silly.

    You should be very proud of yourself. You set your eyes on a meet, trained for it, and gave it your all. That's all that matters.

    Hit an easy 405 and then 445 squat. Real deep, fast reps especially 405. At this point my glute is hurting so I pass on third attempt to save for deadlifts.

    I bomb all 3 bench attempts which really was dissapointing and put a damper on my confidence. First attempt I lift my head off the bench as I lower the bar, press the weight easily and get DQed for head off the bench.

    Second attempt I bump up weight, I thought I heard the judge give the start, but he didnt and I realized so I went down an inch, went back up, got the start but got DQed for going up and down.

    Last attempt I was burnt.

    I foam roll the glute, hit 555 and 585 on deadlift. It's a grinder and that's it.

    ---

    Other mistake, getting 2 hours of sleep the night before which left me exhausted for 10 hours there.

    Again I loved the people there and the atmosphere and will pan another meet soon. I got the feet wet, learned from some mistakes and have some easy PRs to beat next time.
    Sounds about the same as my first meet back in June! Lol learning experience for sure bro! It's all good and you will KILL it next time.

    Tough break on the head raise call another pointless rule. Good squats and dead despite the issues. You'll come back and kill it next time for sure.

    So 2 days of eating and I am stuffed. I am guessing I will be over 220 tomorrow morning.
    I must say the one thing I miss most about eating "whatever" is missing my shake with fiber! Man do those make a difference! LOL
    Back on track diet wise tomorrow.

    Nice work, both look good for openers.

    What are your goal lifts and/or total for this meet?

    I'd be happy with getting an extra 5 pounds on each lift compared to my last meet in the 242s since this time I would be in the 220s. 535-385-655 or better would be awesome. we'll se though...

    I think so.
    with my diet planned out for the next few days my weight should be no problem.
    loading up on creatine as well. not that it matters much for 1rm but it certainly won't hurt any.
    I had a nice nap today to get rid of that headache as well.
    it's just a matter of trying to stay healthy and rested at this point.

    Good (I think). Managed to nail a good 264 ATG squat last night. That's my raw PB in a meet, so with 3.5wks to go I think I am capable of 275 with which I'd be pretty stoked with

    Just putting together a video now from last night; I warmed up then hit my planned opener of 220 (felt easy), then went to 242 (felt comfortable) and finished with 264 which was not too bad. I think for the meet I'll do something like:

    ATTEMPT 1: 220
    ATTEMPT 2: 264
    ATTEMPT 3: 275

    Good plan?

    seems decent. should be pretty confident with that 264 since you just did it.

    Agree. Hope the nap helped with the headache.

    FWIW I've been adding 5g of glutamine + 5g creatine into my Post-WO shake, I'm sure it all helps on some level in the long run. What dose are you loading with Joe, you using Micronised mono or just regular?
