    Masters 3, 105kg - British Columbia provincial meet

    Squat (weights in KG's):
    190 - didn't know what to expect based on my last few weeks of training so opened light
    200 - This weight seemed to move better than my opener
    210 - This was a bit of a strain, but I had more in the tank

    Bench - Competition is always harder than training. The start command came after several seconds of holding, and the press command seemed really long in coming too.
    150 - felt light and moved fast
    155 - Again, this moved fast - the commentator said it moved like baby weights LOL
    161 - The previous national record was 160 (not 155 like I mentioned above) so the minimum increase was 1kg which is what I added. I got 1 red light from a side judge but the lift counted. Again, I had a bit more in the tank

    Deadlift
    210 - I was going to open with 200 but the warm ups felt pretty good so I did 210. Surprisingly (based on my previous weeks of training) this moved pretty easy.
    225 - Because 210 went easy I bumped to 225. This went well too.
    237.5 - The provincial record was 235 so I bumped it up a bit. Had to work for this but got it.

    Total = 608.5 - This increased my national total record by 3.5 KG's. I now hold all the provincial records for my age/weight class too. Pretty happy with that considering I was thinking of not even competing due to injury and poor training results from the previous few weeks.
    Had to bump these numbers to another page!
    Great job and congrats on the records in your class!

    Congratulations!
    Thanks guys. Much appreciated!

    I actually don't feel sore or anything from the meet. My portion of the meet was Friday night (it went right through to Sunday with around 200 lifters in total), so I was thinking of doing some light lifting today. I had a couple beers so decided not to, but will likely do some light training tomorrow.

    Warm up - 500M row

    Started the Calgary Barbell 16 week powerlifting program today. Calgary Barbell 16 Week + 8 Week Program Spreadsheets (2023) - Lift Vault

    If I go to worlds, that meet is ~ 16 weeks out so this program should work well timing wise. For now I will follow it closely, but I may substitute some accessory exercises, or do less work than programmed as it is a 4 day a week program with deadlifts twice a week. I have to be careful with deadlifts as I burn out quickly on those. We'll see how it goes...

    Starting with light weights so that is good. I like a program I can ease into

    Squat - 3 minutes rest between sets
    KG/LB
    Bar-10
    70/155-5
    120/265-3
    140/308-7,7,7,7

    Comp Bench - 2 minutes rest between sets
    bar-10

    BB bent over row
    70/155-12,12,12
