I didn't cut for the meet and weighed in at 270, this left me feeling great on meet day. My goal was 2100 and I wanted to try an 870 squat. Unfortunately my second attempt squat was called for depth so I never got to try 870. However I still went 8/9 and hit pr's across the board finishing with 840/530/730.
I deadlifted 701 on my third attempt this past weekend at the USPA TOM BROWN MEMORIAL IronMan weighing in at 215, this was exactly 4 weeks after cutting weight and flying to vegas from New York to compete at 198 in the IPL worlds, where I finished the day with a 661 deadlift!
