Starting to feel refreshed again and finally got around to uploading my vids and made a more detailed write up:

I went 7/9 and totaled 560kg, 1235lb. It is a 6lb PR over my previous meet total (BTW-which was in wraps, and with a deadlift bar).  Had fun and finished healthy

Squats went 3/3 with 175/187.5/195. Everything went as planned, I hit all the A option attempts and the 3rd squat of 195kg was actually around a 9 or 9.5 RPE.

Squat Attempt 2, 187.5kg

Squat Attempt 3, 195kg (6lb PR and in sleeves)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BqIfQeZ59lw 

Bench went 2/3 with 107.5/115/117.5(miss). Opener moved good, but the jump to 2nd seemed too big and my 2nd attempt ended up being a major grinder. I think I  mis-grooved it and it moved forward on me and it took everything I  had to save it. Nothing more was there for the 3rd, I  took the smallest jump possible but missed it.

Deadlift went 2/3 with 235/250(miss)/250. Opener moved good, 2nd attempt I  had a technical error and I  had a hiccup mid way up and got 2 red lights. I repeated the 250kg and lifted it at about a 9/9.5rpe and got a clean lift for the third.

Deadlift Attempt 3, 250kg

Overall, I  think the plan was on target, with the exception of bench where my strength was off. Deadlift I just failed to execute, I think the strength was there for 260kg, but after missing the 2nd, I  played it safe and didnít go up for my third. The meet was not very well run, they had me in the wrong weight class. I was told it was fixed but when my flight started, I was not shown on the list of lifters.  They were never able to fix it, so the whole meet I had to ask the scoring table where I was in the list, and they were basically winging it for my lifts because I wasnít in the computer.

Great job Andrew! Congrats on the PR, sucks that they didn't have their act together.

Thanks! The squat was a 6lb PR over my wrapped squat, and it was in sleeves so Iím pumped on that. Wrapped Iíd probably have 450-475 in me. Creeping up on that 500 mark  ;D
