    Competed last weekend at another qualifier and walked away with a 525kg total.

    185kg Squat, 115kg Bench and 225kg Deadlift.

    It was my first meet using knee wraps and I just didn't use them effectively, missed depth on 192.5kg and couldn't recover from 195kg. Haven't trained enough in them to get the most out of them. My bench press was just far weaker than usual for some reason, dipped half way up on 120kg and got red lighted all round. I played it safe on Deadlift, I probably could have ground out 232.5kg but my second lift (215kg) just didn't feel right. Nevermind, I was already qualified for Euro's so this meet was just for experience, however it has highlighted some glaring flaws.

    Anyone got meets coming up? How are you all getting on?

    Congrats on the meet - they almost never go as planned, but you got a total in, so that's what count!

    Euros, you mean the WPA in Ireland?

    Training is going pretty well, let's see after the next program...no meets planned yet this year, as I have a very unpredictable work schedule ("You need to be in Korea on Wednesday" kind of schedule).

    Rushed into a set of 225 kg x 5 rack pulls and dislocated a rib. Looking for a new hobby now lol.

    Cheers man. It's the AWPC/WPC in Ireland. I'm not sure if that's the same thing.

    Good to hear about your training, I know your pain on that work schedule - I get sent here, there and everywhere at the drop of a hat too.

    Christ man, that sucks. Get well soon.

    Training is ramping up for Euros now.

    What kind of monster programs 10 x 30m lengths of sled pulls, 50% bodyweight whilst holding a 20kg slam ball.... :ugh:

    Spent the last year or so rehabbing a foot injury and have just now gotten back into heavy lifting w/ squats. Max for squat is at 375 lbs. Haven't gotten back into regular dead lifts yet...all single leg deadlifts with light/moderate weight per my physical therapy. The year I stayed off heavy leg exercises due to my injury saw my bench press increase by 70 lbs and it's now at 325 lbs max.
