American Iron Gym, Reno, NV. November 4 - Good luck Andy!
« on: October 30, 2017, 12:03:40 PM »
Andrew just nailed a 375x2 squat pr in the last week and pulled an incredibly easy looking 505 deadlift leading into his next meet.  All of this just a few short weeks off a hamstring injury.  Can't wait for the write up and vids after the meet.

Good luck bud!

Andrew, get out there and Get Some. 

Rest up, relax, make weight, and then focus.

Looking forward to the updates and vids!

Thanks for making this thread Dave and thanks all the support guys, the meet went killer. American Iron gym in Reno is a sweet venue. The gym has top notch equipment, including a warm up room with 2 mono's and 10 squat racks and the place just has an all out good environment to hit PR's. I added some good pounds to my total and finished 9/9. UPA has kilo plates, so this is why some of the numbers are a bit funky, but here it is in lbs

squat
374.8
402.3
424.4

Bench
231.5
242.5
253.5

Deadlift
501.6
523.6
551.2

total: 1229lbs

Squats went good, except for the part where i was self-wrapping. That was hard as hell..lol. Bench felt great today and i liked the set up so much it felt even better than benching at home. Deadlifts went good, the 523.6 moved very good so i went for broke and got the 551. I'm pumped as fuck hitting a 550 dead! I'll work on getting some vids up

Way to go Andrew.  :rockon: :woot: :banana: congrats on the pr's. Sounds like you had a good time there. If this keeps up you'll be up to the 1300s by spring.

Congrats Andy! Way to go!

I hear you.  Especially when you don't have a handler helping out. This is why I changed to raw, no-wraps.

thanks guys, damn internet has been down at my house all day but i finally just got back online to upload the vids. Here are my 2nd and 3rd squats and 2nd and 3rd deadlifts. Unfortunately I did not get any videos of my bench. It was a killer meet, love hitting PR's on the platform, there's nothing quite like it.










Also, check out these best lifter trophies. The battle axes were so fucking killer looking
