    Default Shannan's quest for beasthood

    • phoenix arizona seminar date
    • texas seminar date
    Yep, I'm Shannan. Fast approaching 42yoa, weight 120-124. I've been lifting for many years, but powerlifting since June 2012. My first competition was 12/1/12, next is 3/23/13.

    First competition lifts (12/1/12):
    Squat 165
    Bench 110
    DL 237

    Mock meet (2/23/13):
    Squat 165, 175-PR, 185-failed (folded forward)
    Bench 112, 116-matched PR, 120-failed (couldn't lock out, but closer than I've ever been)
    DL 235, 245-PR, 255-PR

    First and second lift plans for 3/23/12 - as of today:
    Squat 170, 180
    Bench 115, 120
    DL 245, 260

    I'd really like to hit squat 185/bench 120/DL 270... 3 weeks of training/eating/sleeping to go!

    3/1/13

    Week dominated by work and little sleep. Had a dream about squats last night. Must be too many days out of the gym.
    Does anyone cut creatine before a meet? If so, how many weeks ahead to diurese? Weighed for the first time tonight in many months... not too thrilled...

    DL
    135X5
    155X5
    182X3
    200X2
    210X1
    220X1
    225X1 - rep was supposed to be 235, but I miscalculated. I'm a plate retard (NOT too hard, just 4 big boys).
    235X1

    OH Press
    62 3X5

    Good morning (I now see little usefulness for these, they will be cut after today)
    105 3X12

    Pull-ups
    BWX4
    BWX3
    BWX2 - Why-oh-why do I suck sooo much at these?? One day, I'm gonna just do pullups (no other lifts) and get a respectable 3X10

    Ran out of time, HRLs some other day. God, I miss OLYs.
