    Met with partners of small PE firm here last night, they seemed pretty receptive to bringing me on. Great investment philosophy, great work environment, wouldn't be sitting in a cube running models or making Power Points all day, great work-life balance, too. Really fucking excited about it, they said they'd let me know within a few weeks. :slayer:

    I think that doing good mornings and rdls is helping my squat form a lot.

    Oh my god this. Was working out yesterday, and while I put up near-regular weight on squats, and did my full elliptical session, I wasn't there mentally at all. High-volume exercising (I went about 20 of the last 22 days working out/exercising) on a cut is brutal.

    Good luck guys.

    Received my EFS heavy elbow sleeve and so decided to go back to benching after a bit of a hiatus due to tendinitis. The good news is that the sleeve was incredibly helpful in preventing any elbow pain, as of now, gone completely. However, definitely a different experience using a sleeve, I think it basically takes the stress on the elbow and distributes it up the arm to the bicep and down the arm to the wrist, both felt much more taxed. Blood flow was also a bit of an issue which seemed to hamper my strength, was only able to put up 3 x 225 vs. 5 at 235 a couple weeks ago. Maybe it just takes some getting used to, certainly better than the alternative which is not benching at all.

    After a few sessions using them you'll probably get a couple pounds out of them.

    Belated thanks everyone.

    A quick write up:

    Had a moderate cut and felt okay the day of lifting. Had to go early to watch my friend lift in the AM session so basically sat around for 5 hours until I had to lift.

    Overall, I was happy with the meet, especially with my bench (65lb meet PR). Got the 1,500 total I was aiming for at this meet. First professional/elite total.

    The only thing I was slightly disappointed in was my squat depth. Wayyyyyy tooooo low. Completely blanked on cutting to proper depth which I have been in training. Oh well. Even with BURYING 585, I almost got it. I'll be more conscious of this next time. Maybe widen my stance a bit more or something.

    I'll be shoot for a meet towards the end of this year.. maybe November or December.

    Will be aiming to compete in the 198's again.. with a bigger cut. And will probably be my last meet in the 198's.. but who knows. Shooting for a 625/405/650.



    Anyways, I'll shut up now.. here's the video:

    Just curious, what was your overall ranking in the meet?
