    God damn, that's some real shit. My PRs qualify for class IV... But I've never been to an actual meet and I'm not sure I could hit enough all on the same day LOL.

    Ah well, some day I'm definitely going to one.

    Not sure what I was overall. But there was a 198 there already with a previous pro total. I entered in as an amateur but I totaled pro so they moved me up to the pro division at the end. That guy ended up with a 1,550 total.

    Wow. Nice lifts Charly. Intense arch on the benching. Shame about the squat and DL but I'm confident you'll increase those numbers very soon.


    While on the topic, I just found out there's a weightlifting club in my town. They have their own gym and hold meets every now and then. Seems super cool. The members fee for training is very cheap too (about half of what I pay now at the fancy new built gym I go to) and includes coaching on the main lifts from the old regulars there. Looked up some pics of it and looks like a proper place to train with lots of power racks, barbells and semi fat middle age weightlifters [​IMG]

    The problem is that they only offer annual member ships and being half way through the year already, it'd be expensive to join now. On the plus, that leaves me with some time to bulk up and increase my number until I join next year so I don't embarrass myself with my current lifts.

    I deserved to miss that given how deep I took it haha. Next competition, I'll take that 585 for an easy second attempt.


    A lot of pedialyte and pizza lol


    Haha yea FINALLY! Thanks man.


    Thanks. Arch could be bigger. Something I'll work on for my next meet. Looking for at least a 405 for my next meet.


    Yea, those misses weren't ideal but I'll take 7/9 :)



    Thanks CTK.



    Thanks!

    A few comp pics! Will post direct links instead of embed since they're large and I don't feel like resizing:

    The last one shows me in a rear relaxed next to the guy who beat me. It seems the judges prefered size over definition in this, as in all the weight classes the bigger guys were beating guys who came in leaner. He looked great though and was a really nice guy(his calves were super juicy too!)

    I weighed in at 175.

    TBH, the other guy had better...stage presence...I guess. He smiled more during his poses and got the crowd more involved. His family/friends were much more vocal too. His calves and pecs were better than mine, for sure. But in the end I'm still happy with my performance and super motivated to improve. I went in with the mindset of competing with myself and I think I won in that regard. Next time I'm going for 1st Overall.:slayer:

    Thanks! I think I'll wait until next spring to compete again since I feel I have a good amount of work to be done on my physique and I have a ton of travel this fall.

    Doubt I'll get up that heavy, lol. One thing I learned this prep is that it's miserable to cut for 5 straight months. My plan is to not get more than 20 pounds away from stage weight so I can do a whole prep in 12 weeks. Hoping next year to compete at around 180, so that means I'll prob bulk up to 200 this fall. Contemplating doing a PL meet in the fall, too. Definitely going to do a lot of strength training -- will likely use that program you posted.
