Meet recap...finally

So we had the meet. We had a lot of fun with the boys. John and Ben had good meet, mine was not so steller.
I ended up going 3 for 9 just hitting my openers. Judging was fair but strict on squats.
Numbers:
Squat 880
bench: 625
Deadlift: 635
That is about all I have to say about that.

Back to training now.

Bench and Squats

Monday we did about 50 % raw off 2 boards for doubles
5 sets of 2 with 365
Lat pulldowns: 5 sets light
Band Pushdowns: 3 sets of 15 with blue band, 3 set of 15 with gray band.

Squat night was about the same. 50 % for doubles in briefs
505 X 5 sets of 2. I actually took the last set to depth
Reverse Hypers: 2 sets of 15
High Hanging leg raise: 3 sets of 8

Trying to keep me weight up now. My approach so far
Breakfast: 1 banana, 1 protein Bar, 1/2 pecan pie (with whip cream )
Dinner: 1/2 container of hummus with crackers, 7 hotdogs, the other half of my pecan pie, and some ice cream. staying right around 280 right now...just doing my part to keep it there. haha

Ketchup log

So I have been a little busy lately with buying a house with my wife and moving all our crap...and unpacking all our crap. So here is the short recap of my latest training sessions

Deads: worked up to 725 in my suit and missed it twice, dropped back down to 700 and missed it once and called it a day there.

Bench: Shirted up for an opener and barely got 615 to touch and missed it. Took 615 again and touched and ground an ugly single out. Then put my new phenom on and singled 585 off a one board. So I decided to use my new shirt I have not touched anything to my chest in at the meet. Should be interesting.

Squats: worked up to 825 for a double, then 875 (opener) for a slow ugly single, but it was at depth at least.

This saturday I did some speed deads, and this monday I did some speed bench off a 2 board raw. That is about the gist of it right now. one or two more workouts before the meet.
