Alrighty, all heavy prep is DONE. 
I'll open with 600 squat, 2nd lift...635, then hopefully end 650ish,  go for broke right
Bench- didn't progress as great as I'd liked it too...open 365, hopefully finish around 405
DL...open 500 close...who knows, I didn't spend any time prepping for DL. Focus was on squat this time around.

Tomorrow I'll hit some chest, high volume, Friday possibly high volume legs and that will be it, next week I won't be doing anything other than eating and sleeping.  Since it's my first meet, I'm not going to even bother with cutting.  I'm sitting @255 in the 275 class so I have nothing to worry about weight wise.  I'll enjoy my last week and eat whatever the heck I want.   ;D

I would really like to get a 2nd night at the hotel. I talked to some guys that did RPS last year and by the time awards were done it was @9pm and then I have a 3.5hr drive home.   :-\

Looks like there will be some good prizes at the event, Animal is a sponsor along with Captain Jacked and a few others.  Should be a great time.

Steak. and then more steak. ANd as soon as you're weighed in, carbs, and more carbs.  See if you can put on 10 lbs. Come in bloated, and swollen, and you'll smoke 650.

3.5 hour drive, and you'll be fried.  It's tough as hell.  I made the mistake of driving home from Rochester the first time Flex stepped on the platform.  left at 10pm for the 6 hour drive.  It actually took 7 1/2, because I had to stop 3 times to nap. Got a hotel the next time.  You'll be much happier leaving the venue at 9pm, and being asleep by 9:30.

Mindy goes all out with trying to get sponsors and cool swag for the lifters.  Not sure if you saw it, but Mindy got in her Bench Shirt yesterday, and she hit 405.  Not bad for a 181lb lady lifter.

Yea, my first meet last August I did the same thing. Slept there the night before, then drove home after the meet.. 3.5hrs. I had a wife to help with the driving, I crashed about 1 hour after the meet.. I was done.

Good Luck and keep us posted!

Definitely, I'm going to start upping the cals now and then really pig out after weigh in.

Fortunately my wifey is going, so she can drive back if she has too. ( I really don't like anyone to drive my truck though)

I saw the pic of everyone with their shirts on, I didn't see her lift though.  She's strong, no doubt!

That's fantastic!  Hardest lift down.  As Ron said to me in Rochester "You get to lie down for your next lift!"
Last meet lifts:  245/125/285
April 2017:  235/130/255
