Ramrods First Equip. Meet Results 11-19-16
« on: November 21, 2016, 09:59:55 AM »
Had my first Single ply Meet Yesterday with the 365Strong.org Federation.

It was the First Meet in Missouri for this Fed. So everyone who won their class was getting State Records. This Fed is also pretty new and has many National Records to still be set. My class was one of them. Meet Started at 8am and ended up walking out at 8pm. 12hr Day.

I entered in the 198 Open Single Ply and M/P/F divisions. 365Strong doesn't have a SubMaster Class yet. Which is what I normally enter. (I'm not a Pro..lol) My goal was to break into 1700, but it didn't happen. Man was it close though.

I won both and pulled off the Best Overall Male Lifter.

This meet was a learning curve. Timing, Warm ups, set up etc. Most of it is different then Raw. Overall Great Meet, got a little robbed with tough calls and I should have contested my 2nd Squat and got another Chance. But I didn't... Anyway on to the lifts.

SQUATS:
Warms when ok, We had a Big flight all trying to warm up with one Monolift. Got rushed in Warm ups.
Opener: 575 When easy no problems. Rack height was way off. Had to Take time to fix.

2nd Attempt: Started wrapping when I was in the Hole. My turn was up, but weights took a bit to get set. Got up and the Rack Height was off again, but close enough for me. So I un-racked it. Arms never got swung out. I had to tell him to swing the arms out, but instead I was told to re-rack. So I re-racked and they started adjusting the height again. Was Pissed. By this time I've been wrapped for a while. Legs Numb. Bombed my 2nd Attempt at 625 lbs.

3rd Attempt: Went for 625 again, but I got hit on Depth. Saw others squat higher, but it is what it is. Truly think I would have gotten this on my 2nd. Really needed to get 625 to make 1700 happen.

BENCH:
Warms went much better. I noticed many not warming up while 1st flight was running. Took advantage of that and pretty much had a bench to ourselves. Warmed up to 405
Opener: 425 was my opener. Smoke Show and was very easy..No Video

2nd Attempt: 451 Went up easy again.

3rd Attempt: 479 Went up easy but my bar path starting leaning towards the racks and I couldn't stop it. Hit the racks. I'll smoke this next time.

DEADLIFTS:
Opener: 575 SMOKED
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SACZ9q84vbE

2nd Attempt: 617 SMOKED...PR
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MopzQ_xNPBU

3rd Attempt: 650 SMOKED...PR
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GmRFHdOmtr4

4th Attempt: Turn around from 3rd was less then 5min....Should have asked for more time.
672.. Went up but got called on a small hitch. Again saw much bigger hitches get called good. I would have loved to have this, but I was so happy it moved that fast.

Nice write up! Props for the geared lifting. I've never done it but I watch a ton of people in the gym do it. Looks like a lot to get use to.

Thanks everyone, Only been training in gear for a few weeks. On my own too, have had to learn this myself.  Im planning at least a 700 Deadlift soon. Going to looking for a real deadlift suit. The one Im using is a used Metal V-SQUATTER I bought off PLW for 35 bucks.

Congrats on the meet.  What made you switch to gear?  Trying not to sound like a dick, but I don't get the gear thing.  Is the appeal pushing more weight, a new challenge, something different?  Maybe I'll see the light and it will be my next thing, who knows.

Thanks, I'll still be doing RAW Meets too.  That's pretty much it. Wanted a new Challenge and always said I would try it. So after buying a few suits and selling them b/c they just sat around. I finally just said enough excuses and did it. Glad I did. All my Raw numbers have gone up too.

I did learn the Suits and shirts are no joke. Harder to learn and can be painful at times. When I first got them on. I wasn't even getting my RAW Numbers in them. This  was just my first meet. I'm planning on some much bigger numbers.

I've seen big guys trying to get into squat suits.  That in itself looks like there's a bit of a learning curve.  I feel like I'll never learn how to lift raw, never mind adding gear.

It's fun and different. Bench is by far the Hardest to learn. Unless you have a Bench Daddy Shirt.

Congrats. Geared or not, those are some damn impressive numbers. Great job.
