Well a solid benching effort today. It’s been a long time since I’ve competed as a powerlifter, but it was fun to get back to it. It felt good that my extra safe opener was bodyweight. I hit 185 super easy, but got out of the groove on the 200 attempt. No biggie.
The pull was a bit of a disappointment but I was not really prepared to pull and entered on a whim. 325 was pretty easy, but 350 didn’t go. Kind of frustrating for me because I feel like that is mostly a setup problem. Anyway, I passed on the third attempt.
Then I came into the gym and hit two consistent sets of tire flips and pushed some heavy prowler.
It felt great, and I’m looking forward to the next week of training.
