    CGBP: 170x4. Less pain in left shoulder, maybe because I was still warm and didn't wait to do these at home an hour later.

    Today was my last workout before the meet Saturday. It was just light (75-80%) SQ and P, for three doubles across.

    Thank you, sir. My planned second attempts will each be 1k PRs. Fun will definitely be built into the day as our gym is having an anniversary party right after the meet.

    Thank you, sir. They will have the first national strengthlifting meet this January. To get in, lifters must have a total (any total) in either this year's Spring Challenge or Fall Classic.

    I say that not because I'm planning on going to nationals this year, but because I'm guessing they will institute a qualifying total at next year's. It will be interesting to see what that might be.

    I went 7 for 9 and hit at least a 1K PR on all three lifts. I had planned those modest PRs for my second attempts and hoped to shoot higher than that for my third attempts. But I missed my second Press and Second DL so I repeated them for my third. Comebacks are tough psychologically. But I have always come back from missed seconds in the meets I have done. Now, I look at them as wakeup calls. So, I'll remember that if I ever miss a second attempt again, and not give in to the temptation to just pass on a third attempt.

    SQ: 117k, 129k (PR), 130k (PR). Doing 1RM's at these meets helps me learn about staying in my hips and grinding. I'll have to remember that during training.

    P: 52k, 57k (fail), 57k. The flight order changed on my second attempt and I was caught flat footed putting on my belt and wrist wraps.

    DL: 134k, 148k (fail), 148k. The shakes at the knee pushed the bar away, but a couple of people cued me to "keep it close" on my third.

    Nicely done.
    What did the guy flag you for on the squat video?

    Thank you, Browndog. Excellent question. When I walked off the platform, both the judge and the meet director were kind enough to explain that I had soft knee(s). I don't remember if they specified setup, lockout, or both. I thought it was instructive, and glad it didn't count against the lift. It wasn't surprising: he was on my right side and I've had a couple surgeries on that knee that left me lacking a few degrees of extension, and a slight asymmetry.

    Ah yes, soft knee(s).

    I was on the receiving end of that call in Orlando. And like you, the call was made on the leg that has had multiple surgeries.

    In my case, it cost me my 3rd.
