Bench night went good, but had to be fast. Only had 45 minutes to get it done. had to make multiple stops on the way home, and didn't make it to the gym until 7pm.  Babysitting was over at 8pm. To many people wanted to talk. 

Worked up to sets of 225x7 for 5 sets. 
Tomorrow night, is squats.

Wednesday was Squat night.
Didn't go as planned.  It was the first night that I had planned to test out full Kit.  Briefs, Suit, wraps.  Had 505 on my back, and when I was almost at bottom, involuntarily coughed. The pressure was at a point, where something had to give.  Still finished the rep, though.
It felt liked I had been kicked in the chest.

my chest cavity is very sore.  Can't take a full deep breath without pain. 

Hoping it dissipates over the weekend.
Then last night, doing dishes, I had a ceramic bowl break in my hand, and I have a nice gash on two fingers, that will prevent me from doing Deads tomorrow.

It's been a while....
Long rough battle to get here, but I'm 3 days out from stepping back on the platform.
Injuries, nearly dying, Gene Passing, Running so many Meets, traveling so much.  Changed Jobs, twice. 

Openers are submitted. 625, 400, 555

Seconds look like 675, 425, 590

If all goes well, I'll take 725, 435, 615

Yes, equipped.

A Bench Shirt, I borrowed. Flex's Briefs he sent me, and a Squat Suit that's about 5 years old.  And I'm pulling Raw. 

I had a Deadlift  Suit, that was very tight, when I weighed 240.  Now, I'm tipping in about 270, so yeah... it's not gonna fit.

After this Meet, I may invest in my own Gear.

It was a Good Meet.  Did Epic stuff.

came in second place in my division, with a 1685 Total.

675/455/555

Guy who beat me, totaled over 2000.  905 Squat, high 500 Bench, and 600 or so Dead.

Vids will go up later.

Good job.  I was sure you where going to have a deadlift pr looking at the couple videos I saw.  You must have just been beat at that point.  I'm guessing just getting in and out of the scuba suit for the first two lifts kicks your ass a bit.

Indeed.  my 555 Opener Flew up. 585 ground out above my knees.

I'll still take it, as it as I stacked 700lbs on my back and took it for a ride.  Sometimes you have to have more balls than brains. 

Next one, though...

I really needed this, after not stepping on the platform in more than 16 months, and coming back from nearly dying.

Next week, it's back to working Raw for a few months.

Likely September or December before I can get back on the platform again.
