2016 Staten Island Championship
« on: July 30, 2016, 09:47:24 PM »
This was my first meet, USAPL- I lift raw and in the 84kg weight class.

Weigh in: 83.65kg-just made it  :)

Squats: 132.5kg, 142.5kg, 160kg (PR)- American record (didn't know it until they announced it. I was like a deer in the headlights.

Bench: 67.5, 70kg (forgot to turn in my second attempt), 82.5kg- bar dropped a bit before I locked it out.

Deadlift: 142.5kg, 162.5kg, 185kg (PR)-American record (wasn't surprised this time)

Total: 410kg (PR for me)

I had a great day. Everyone was really nice. I met a girl who goes to my alma mater. I was able to recommend her some cool places to check out in Boston.

I'll be doing my next meet in November. I can't wait.

Thanks Everyone.

My third attempts were on the conservative side (well except for my bench, but oh well).

I wanted to make sure I didn't stumble after my squat, and I wasn't sure how long I'd be able to hold my deadlift after the lockout as I had never practiced pausing at the top.

Now that I know what it's like to lift in a meet, I'll be able to practice my reps like that so I stay consistent.

I'm working on a new training plan to bring my bench up to speed. The 2016 goals I had set for myself were 2 plate bench, 3 plate squat, and a 4 plate deadlift, so now it's time to bring the bench home.

My butt is crazy sore, but I can't wait to compete again. November, here I come.
