    fighting a pretty decent bug...luckily got decent rest yesterday before shift, so felt much better today, but still dehydrated thanks to way too many bathroom trips...still no preworkout, just Green Mag...stamina was on E.

    weight is surprisingly at an ok place right now, especially after anniversary weekend with the wife, and takeout and/or dinner out for 3 straight days, ate like absolute garbage...after tomorrow's dinner (12-1pm) I will be going on a 24hr fast heading into Thanksgiving...I will try to keep it as clean as possible, lol. This upcoming Saturday marks 2 week out from the Meet.

    not sure how, but today went way better than expected...was programmed for a 2 x 3 @ 295, but went with 305 based on feel of warm up reps.

    Also, in a much better position this time around compared to my July meet...at that time shoulder was iffy, so close gripped all bench reps including the 295 2nd attempt and 320 failed attempt...also, the last heavy bench session before my last meet was supposed to be a 2x3 @ 300lbs, and I only managed 2 reps each set...I'm back to pinky inside the rings, and shoulder's feeling great.

    crazy weekend to say the least...weigh ins were supposed to start @ 5pm on Sat, until 6pm, or else you would have to weigh in morning of. By 1:15pm I was down to exactly 182.4 by just wearing my sauna suit for 3 hours while doing regular chores around the house. I was getting ready to take a quick hot bath and get me down to around 178-179 lbs, when I got a call from the wife about a minor fender bender. Just a light bumper to bumper in what was turning into annoying driving conditions because of the snowfall. Needless to say once everything was said and done, it was closing in on 4pm, and I had no desire to drive over 160 miles, twoway, just for weigh ins...was just happy the wife was ok.

    long story short, stuffed my face, and weighed in at 196.2 lbs fully clothed minus shoes, Sunday morning...and felt like absolute ****, lol.

    Was also not a fan of their warm up area...way too tight, way too many lifters. 1st time at this location for the Fed, and you could tell. Was not as well organized as the last one I went to.

    Squats w Wraps

    Opener - 435 lbs - fast and easy....3 reds, jumped the down command for the 2nd straight meet, lol.
    2nd - 450 lbs - 3 whites, not as smooth as I would have liked.
    3rd - 475 lbs - 3 whites, hit a sticking point, but no real grinding, probably should have bumped it up, but happy overall.

    Bench

    Opener - 295 lbs - 3 whites
    2nd - 315 lbs - 2 whites, 1 red. Left side judge was consistently giving reds for ass off bench for anyone who drove their hips back...terrible. Oh well, still got it.
    3rd - 335 lbs - 3 reds, couldn't get it past my sticking point.

    Deadlifts

    Opener - 505 lbs, 3 whites, easy money.
    2nd - 545 lbs, 3 whites, surprised how well this moved.
    3rd - 575 lbs, 3 whites, nice grinder, but felt faster than my 560 last meet.

    7/9 for 1,365 lbs was good enough for 1st place in Open Raw Classic.



    ^^^ my 575 pull...still waiting for Squat and Bench vids to be uploaded by the fed.

    Thanks BI! ...would have definitely been happier to hit these numbers @ 181, especially considering all the torturous dieting and water cutting the week of, but really that would be the only negative. I felt like shit throughout the meet, but put everything I could on the platform, and for me that's more than enough.

    Already lining up my next meet... April 8, same fed, same location.
