So, my PL comp write up seems like it's not destined to happen. My sister had all the videos in her phone. There were initial issues with getting them but it was looking promising, until she dropped and smashed her phone. She's hoping to get them back as she has every single attempt recorded. Who knows.

What I hoped more than anything was to point out what went wrong with my squat via the video. You can even see it on my (easy) opener. Then detail what I was doing about it.

A client who came to watch has a lot of the videos, too, but not all. I'll get those soon-ish, I think. There's a video of my final DL on Facebook but I don't know how to take it from FB and get on my youtube.

Hate technology.

Anyway, the official write up is here
http://www.scottishpowerlifting.com/wp- ... report.pdf" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Nice to see my client and I getting a good mention (her name is Apple).

Also, I was unaware I was in a "head to head battle" lol. 4th right up until my last deadlift. I was just focused on getting my 500 total.

Haha, of all the parts you had to quote. I preferred the "explosive 230" part.

Yip, had to wear a singlet.

I've tried to upload a pic of my 230 just short of lock out (never done it before so don't know if it'll work). I lost the packed neck but I managed to merge my neck and my forehead so it worked out ok.

Also, in that pic, i'm 174lbs.

Right now, i'm leaner than I am there, and i'm 180lbs. I weighed myself yesterday late afternoon, though, where as competition is an early morning weigh in. Still, i've got a little heavier and a little leaner.

All since moving into the Bachelor Pad. Life is officially just about working, training, and eating.
Thanks TimD

Just pulled a doorknob clean off the door at work.

Insert silly joke about "I gotta stop with the rowing moves" here.
