3rd week from meet and I tripled 400 this morning. This was the heaviest weight I've ever hit for more than one rep. I almost fell over backwards on the 2nd rep which has never happened and was scary. My depth looks a little high but the weight felt good. We will see how I feel in 2 weeks but I might be able to bump up my opener a hair which I planned to be 395 ish.

Nice work. I don’t know how you recovered on that second rep but you did and that’s all that matters. . I would keep your opener at 395. Openers Mean nothing. Put your effort into your second and third attempts. I guarantee you will hear people at the meet bragging about how big their opener is only to see them miss it three times and bomb out. Then they will regale you with stories of how they hit it for an easy triple in training. It’s all bullshit. get in the meet first then go for the big numbers. Don’t waste precious adrenaline and psyche on an opener.

Yeah, make your opener conservative, you'll have a little bit of nerves hit you on your 1st lift.

The director just sent out the last email before the meet with the final weight classes and flight assignments. He STILL has me in 120+ raw with wraps. Whatever. I guess it doesn't matter.
Almost half of the lifters are female so there are only about 24 men. I am the only lifter listed out of everyone who is showing as being in a class of RAW with wraps. Does this mean whether I'm changed to 93 open raw with wraps or stay in 120+ raw with wraps that I will be the only one in my class? There are only three other 93 kg open lifters on the chart and they don't appear to be using wraps.

Training continues to go very well withbenchpress today. I tripled 235-245-250, with 250 being my planned opener. Bench press makes me the most nervous because I have always been a very bad presser. I hope training with a pause the last 6 weeks helps. 245 and 250 are both the heaviest triples I've ever done.

Tell them on game day to put you in the right place. Don't change what you're doing because some dude can't get his shit right.

Stuff changes all the time. Openers change, guys don't make weight. It is what it is when they say, Bar is loaded.

What do you wear for your weigh in?

And im sure you'll drop some weight soon. The half life of Coors Light is only 20 minutes.
