daniellamelo- Raw Nats powerlifting meet recap!! I went 7/9 and ended with a 532.5kg total and first place in the 84kg open. This was the best I’ve ever felt going into a meet. Squats were flying and I went to chip the American record on my third with 207.5kg/457.5lbs but I lost my balance at the top and took a step before the rack command so I ended with a 202.5/446lbs squat. 120kg/264lbs on bench. Bench didn’t feel great the whole prep for this meet so I was pretty happy with this. And then deadlifts...ugh. Deads have been my struggle. I went for 215kg/474lbs on my third attempt and was about to lock it out but my thumbs ripped I hate hookgrip.
