gainz4dayz Powerlifting Meet recap: absolutely awesome day yesterday with a finishing total of 1750. My first meet at 220, which I am very happy with my performance. My goal this whole training cycle was to get an 1800 total, so going into deads I had my opportunity to hit it with an 756 pull. Now, yes I could have went with something lower and built my total but where is the fun in that. I knew I was going to have to push myself to get this pull but after the speed of 700 opener, I knew I could. The speed broke off the floor on both pulls so fast, but my mid and upper back is just not strong enough yet to finish these pulls once my legs are done with their job.
