Squat up to 445x2 (10 lb PR)
Speed squats 275 6x2
I have to train my deadlift a day early this week, so I took it easy on the squat volume so that I'll be recovered for pulls on Friday. Very happy with the squat PR today. Last week 435x2 was pretty much an all out effort. 445x2 also was quite hard today, but no worse than 435 last week, so I've gained some legit strength the last few weeks.

Deadlift 580x2 (10 lb PR double and possibly had another rep in the tank. Looking for 620-625 as a third attempt at the meet in 15 days)
Speed pulls 345 5x2
Bench 320 2x2 (PR), 245 2x10
Sumo pulls 135x5, 225x5, 315x5, 405x5, 495x3 (easy, but quit b/c right glute locked up)
--Very good day. Feeling good with the meet 2 weeks out. I'm a very efficient puller and usually can hit for a single way more than I double, so to hit 580 for a smooth double today was great.
Squat 455x1 (ties my best high bar, was a fucking GRIIIIIINDER), 365x5,5,7
Terrible day. Terrible week. Have no desire to do the meet next weekend. Just want 450-330-620 for 1400 and I'll be ecstatic with that.

Congrats on the PRs. Good luck at the meet and make sure you get some sleep...hard to get stronger without rest and food.
Thanks. I need to try harder with the stuff outside the gym. Probably won't, though.
Bench 330 x 1,1,1 (with commands), 275x3,3,5
Db row 120x20
Chest supported machine row 2x10
--Good day. First single with 330 was pretty fast. Last one was a pretty tough grind. Meet is in 7 days. Looking 340ish.
5/15 just getting in a tiny bit of work today before the meet Sat.
Squat 225 for 5 singles
Db curl 45 3x8
Thanks, bud. Had a good day. Totalled 1415 PR raw at a bw of 196 via a 460 squat (PR), 330 bench (not a PR), and 625 deadlift (PR). Will write more of my thoughts later maybe, but here is the video:
And here is my girlfriend's 1st meet video. Not bad for a former ballerina with 8-9 months of lifting experience. She's a pretty good athlete:
Great work Kyle! Your deadlift is fuckin' awesome.
Sounds like you had an awesome meet man...congrats.
