Meet video from the 2014 USPA Intense Barbell Classic this week in Fairmont, WV. All around it was a decent meet, 60 pound PR on Squats, 3 pound PR on Bench and but left a ton off of my deadlift. Missed 733 on my second due to my right heel actually breaking the platform. If you watch close on the second attempt you can see the heel sink into the platform. After the meet when they removed the carpet you could see a piece of the OBD board on the platform was cracked and sunk in. Judges and refs apologized to me, no big deal. I was still able to win best lifter and tie my best total. On to the next one, I wanna destroy 1,750 next time!

I finally got around to making a video from the meet last night. I didn’t hit the numbers that I wanted to hit, but I still hit two PRs and added 44 lbs to my previous meet total even after dropping a weight class. I also set 3 USPA Junior 20-23 American Records in the 275 lb class. 

Woot!

Killed it

Brothers powerlifting-life and squat-press-pull are competing today and they’re both going to kill it. Keep an eye out. 

Thanks man. I finished with a 1642 total to tie my last total and Thomas finished 1825 for a PR.

Best Lifter Award from the USPA Intense Barbell Classic. I finished with a 1642 total at 198. Not my best performance at all PR’d on bench and squat but I left a lot on the platform. Oh well, onto the next one. #powerlifting @uspapower #WVstrong

733 missed on my second attempt. If you watch my right heel actually busts a hole in the floor which threw me off balance and killed the lift. #powerlifting #deadlift (at CrossFit Intense)

So I just found out today that I’ve been accepted into an Exercise Science MS program. It starts Monday. Good thing I already have an apartment there since my gf goes to school at the same place. Now I have to call work tomorrow morning and give them a 3 day notice. I’m sure that’s going to go over well.
