Nice pulls! 615 no problem if you don’t do all the volume on the workup. Is that your goal for the meet?

Yeah; somewhere around there; 610, 615....

Little update:

I had to go to Denver for business Sunday afternoon so no training Sun/Mon/Tue.

Landed in Toronto late Wed afternoon took a taxi home then changed and went to the gym.  It was almost 6pm by the time I got there an I had nothing to eat all day (I'm a nervous flyer so I rarely eat when I fly).

Did a bench session it was horrible.  I didn't eat/sleep/hydrate properly the whole trip and there was a lot of beers consumed.

Didn't train Thu or Fri but did squats today; worked up to a single at 585.

Will do bench tomorrow, skip Monday, deadlift session Tuesday morning then that's it until the platform.

Last bench day before meet.  Triples through 275, single at 315.  Failed on 325.  Not happy with that.

Update: haven't done much since the comp. A few bench sessions that were lame as fuck, one lame deadlift session, and bailed on a squat session after a few sets at 135 due to lingering knee pain.

Time to get back to it.  Shoulders were sore as fuck today. (I benched on Saturday in my garage).
