Nice charly!

Beastly benching and the DLs looked easy, Charly.

 

Shame about the squat. I have a similar problem with judging depth. It always feels like I'm barely hitting parallel when the videos clearly show how I dip far below. Not sure how I would go about correcting it, but it's not a big deal for me since I'm not competing.

Good stuff Charly.

How's the grip on that living room rug they have beneath the equipment?

Thanks!

Surprisingly, the grip on that matting/carpeting is extremely grippy. Very hard to slip on it.

But I'm not a fan of it because I'd much prefer a denser flooring... though that would be hell for the plates.

Yea, I'm not a fan of whatever carpet was used yesterday too. It felt like I was squatting in someones living room. I guess this is usual though.

Yep, unfortunately it's the standard in powerlifting meets. Which is completely understandable since they don't want to fuck up their equipment.

How did your meet go?

Makes sense. It went great, I was so fuckin nervous I only slept 5 hours night prior. Still managed to go 9/9 and set a PR on my final attempt on all my lifts. Totaled pretty low in the 800s, but everyone told me to be super conservative with my training and attempts at the first meet. I think that was good advice because oh man did I realize doing a certain weight at a meet and doing it in your gym are two different things. Way different environment.

Congrats on your first meet!

just because I can't remember, at what level did you compete in weightlifting?

Squats, such a finicky lift. So hard to recover from one tiny little mis-step, and so frustrating to miss weight you've made before. Smart to dial back the bench and DL attempts. Last weightlifting meet I had to do the whole "attempt a 5kg meet PR and probably miss, or get a 3kg meet PR in the books and move on" situation and went the same route as you.

Also, I definitely feel you on the walking in to a meet and feeling drained. I've walked in questioning my ability to lift 100 lbs let alone multiples of that. But then you start warming up and seeing the other folks doing their thing and the adrenaline kicks in and even though you still might not feel perfect, you feel like you can kick some ass anyway.

Now go eat a meat lovers pizza and a cheese steak you skinny pheg.

Just local. Comparing the two; olympic lifting was way more nerve wracking, sometimes I felt like if the wind just wasn't right I couldn't snatch over 60kg. Judging is harder in powerlifting competitions though.

Just realized that for a few hours I weighed more than Charly.
