As the XPC qualifying total is light years away from even elite, I can safely say that will not be in my sights anytime soon, lol.

My opinion differs. I bet I'll see you on that stage sooner than you think.

5# at a time,  one day you'll look back to see just how far you got, 5# at a time.  It's a game of inches, not lightyears.

You're capable of so much more than you can imagine.

Aiming for 365/155/335/855 (need 853 for elite @165), all of which are very realistic considering recent lifts, but I will try not to get all worked up if things don't go as planned.

Good luck tomorrow.

Looking forward to your results and hopefully some vids.

Thanks guys! Yeah, I enjoy how this game is a loooong one, would not be as fulfilling to get nice totals you worked years for otherwise IMO. Just not *soon*, however I have been told I can be stubborn so will look forward to that day when it comes!

Lol, weighed in at 163.4 (or was it .8?) with 2 lb of clothes on so nice wiggle room. Currently done with phase 1 of face-stuffing and scale has me at 176.6  8) I'll be purpled out (and otherwise be a bloatier verison of me in my vids), accompanied by my 10 year old video man.

Haha, well meet was AMAZING  ;D Meet some awesome peeps, of course 1RM among them and he was super cool and a priceless help.

Not sure how coherent I am right now, am waiting for the hot tub to clear out at my hotel cause I NEED those nice hot water jets *aaahhhh*. Want to get vids up but I only have my teeny laptop without my video editing stuff and hardly any hard drive space so will see what I can manage.

1RM was great calling my depth for my squats cause my depth is always hard to make and my 340 miss at my last meet was due to that. Also a huge help with lift-off on bench and cheering me on to make my 3rd attempt grinder for 3 whites by the skin of my teeth.

I ended up with PRs in Squat and DL, and tied my recent gym bench PR. A bit of issues with squat warmup (not enough time for last warmup of 315, went from 295 to 335 opener) which worked out fine in the end. I also walkout my squat just a hair and even though I and about 2 other people loudly told the mono operator I was walking out, he still pulled it early - good thing it was "lighter" wt as I may have lose balance too much otherwise. I yelled (relatively nicely...) at him *louder* the next attempts to pull it *after* I take my steps, lol.

Bench warmup was fine even though I went from 2nd squat flight to 1st bench flight, but had some odd stability issues on the platform (*reaaly* cushy bench made it hard to stay tight) and felt weaker than warmups indicated, but still 3/3 so yay. DL warmups went just dandy since I had a lot of time to plan out rest times. Was nervous as I hadn't DL'd heavy for about 2 1/2 weeks but PR city.

I could go for 4th attempts on all, as the previous RPS submaster world records (I also had crossover with open) were pretty much my openers or lower.

Squat: 335 (felt a tad heavy due to missing last warmup, but knew a lot still in me), 350, 365 (5 lb PR) all 3 whites. 375 4th attempt that my son proclaimed was the most awesome fail ever (sooooo close, will get it next time!)

Bench: 145 felt way too heavy but 3 whites, my last 155 single 2 week prior I felt like a good 10 more in me  no prob. 150 more solid but still a bit of a grind, 155 (PR tie) super grind but form held on great, all 3 whites. Not taking 4th as even another 5 would probably not happen.

DL: Was wary of R glute and hip flexor as common problem there, also L shoulder and neck make my DLs weak but everything was super. 320 opener flew up. Since 335 would give me elite total, decided to take it next and if I missed it, would still have a 3rd try. 335 (10lb PR) was super, one of the girls said it looked like an opener. Since I already got my targets for all lifts, the rest was all gravy. Went for 345 - Great, maybe more in me. 4th for 350 cause ya know tree-fiddy and all  ;) Ground that b out with all my crazy happiness and great way to end a meet! 25 lb PR fricking amazing.

Got 1st for my classes (165 Modern Raw Pro Open and Submaster) and best female lifter. After lifting for 5 years and 4 years of competing, I also finally got an elite total (needed 853, got 865 not counting 4th attempt, 870 including that DL)

As not vids yet, I will leave you with a few pics. I am kneeling in the bottom row 2nd from right with purple "moar squatz" shirt apparently mesmerized by my shiny trophy, lol.  And got a pic of my lifter card cause I forgot what I weighed in at (163.4).

Great Job! We haz an elite!  8)

I want to see the squat fail and dead PR vids 1st.

Did they let you keep your lifter card?

Wasn't the comp bench exactly the same as the warmup bench?

No need to reply right away, you deserve that hottub!

Holy Hell.

Amazing results.

I had a similar issue last August on the squat warm-up.  Started late and my last warm-up was 425 then I was 3rd out and holy fuck I am opening with 525.  100lbs jump.   :o

Waiting for the vids.

Good job birdie.  :clap:
