    Default Power lifting comp

    Im about a week out from my comp. Did my last heavy squat day. Worked up to a 495lb x 1 and then did a drop set of 445 for two sets of two.
    Bench is going to be a hard push. Shooting for 400lbs will be happy with 385+. I failed on a 390 last Thurs.
    Dead lifts are going to be the death of me. I cant seem to find my happy place. I wanted a 610-625lb lift. I have been having a hard time moving 575. Not sure if its my body or my head.

    This is a new to me federation that I will be lifting in. I stand a good chance of setting a squat and bench record for AZ.

    I just dont want to poop my pants.
    Touch the cow. Do it NOW!

    Extra points for pooping, though.

    Its someplace way way way far away where people I know don't need to drive and see me in a lifting singlet.

    Its a long boring day and I enjoy watching people lift.

    Yeah, as I was reading this I kept thinking about what I had been doing just beforehand... rigging up a winch to lift a 500lb transformer 6 inches in the air. I could've just called Bob.
