Here we go again.
« on: December 08, 2016, 04:12:01 PM »
So, as some of you know the full meet I did two weeks ago was sort of a last minute ego trip to get a 500 squat at a meet this year.  Well, I had already signed up for a push pull meet that I had been training for, and that meet is this Sunday.  Yeah, I'm that kind of stupid.  I just booked the hotel, but I feel like I'm not even recovered from the meet I just did. 

I've wanted to do this meet for a while now because it benefits the Shriners Hospitals.  Then I found out our very own Alex is running the meet, so it was a must.   8)

It will be fun quick meet, with some serious lifters. There's a 181 Lady that's looking to Raw Bench 300lbs and she's multi-ply Deadlifting and aiming for 500lbs.

We've had lifters dropping like flies from injuries.

31 lifters total, iirc.

Let me preface this by stating I have Masonic ties. All Shriners must be Masons and I can assure you that you're money will go where it was meant to go, helping children in need.
A noble cause that comes with great responsibility.
I encourage you to kick some butt in this event and not even think of skipping it.
Bad things can happen if one crosses a Mason.

Things like disembowelment, drawing and quartering, and there is of course that nasty thing we had to do to Jack the Ripper way back when.
But you might say "Fiend, Jack The Ripper was never found."
and to that I would answer...
exactly. ;)

So...with that information in mind, that you have essentially made a deal with the "Mafia of Good", I'm sure you will do the proper thing and fulfill your obligation.
Lives could very well depend on it...my friend.

Good luck at the meet Tooth. I'm sure you'll kill it. Sounds like a worthwhile cause too.

330 bench 525 deadlift. Passed on my third deadlift attempt because I messed something up in my left quad on my second attempt. Still somehow managed best male lifter. The monster next to me in one of these pictures won best overall. I asked him if he was male, and it was the only time I saw him smile all day. Alex ran a great meet too.
