Deadlift: 600, 650 ✔️ 672 ✖️
All in all was a great day on the platform. The fun part of meets for me is analyzing where to improve, and how to get better for next time! Used the 12 weeks in between these last two meets to dial in the squat/fix the issues from March, and build a better raw bench. The 418 was a nice pr, but I was strong enough and ready for 440 on Saturday. I bobbled the hand off and wasted precious time/energy trying to settle in, came off the chest how I needed it to, but ran out of juice to finish it. Used the second deadlift attempt to secure the total, and that was about it. Still loaded up a 6lb pr attempt for the third, but hips weren’t having that. Managing fatigue and general conditioning may be a weak point after meets like this where I hit all three squats, something to look at going forward.
Next step: Can’t wait to get back in the gear and work on putting up a real equipped total. The foundation has been set, going to focus on the deadlift, and pick up the squat/bench right where I left off.
Big thanks to ezra_salmon for putting on a great weekend - brought out some of the biggest totals that Michigan has seen in the 5 years I’ve been powerlifting. Happy to be apart of it!
