Think it is about time I did my post comp write up from last weeks Equipped British. The main thing for me was to make my weight class and regain the Masters British Title.
So here it goes.
Squats went 280Kg 295 then onto 305, a slight mis groove towards the top of the lift threw me off balance and it started to fall backwards.
Bench and here the roller coaster started for me, opening on 205Kgs and missing it on both my first and second attempts did nothing but put pressure on me for the third, make it or bomb out. We changed the shirt on this attempt, same size just a different shirt and it ended up with a 2 to 1 passed lift, wow thankfully it went that way and left me still in the competition
Deadlifts and using a new suit for the first time seemed like a good idea at the time, however I did struggle into the suit and managed to struggle to get to the bar, I managed 240Kg opener and then jumped to 250 and despite trying to pull it when I was all out off position just ended up with the bar being left on the floor. I did come out for the third attempt on the 250it seemed a much better lift but unfortunately, I dropped the bar at the top just as I had the down signal.
The final outcome was 740Kgs total at 73.9Kg bodyweight with 4 lifts out of 9
I had a game plan for the comp and whilst it did not go to Plan, I am not too disappointed as I know I can do much better and, on another day, hopefully that will come out, the whole build up towards the comp had been up and down with some underlined issues that I feel need to be addressed and will be before the next comp. I do think that things do constantly need to be looked at as it is so easy to become complacent and not fully concentrate on training. And one thing for sure is I need to be fully fit to go into the rest of the year’s events.
So, from here on in it is going to be Plan A, and if you know you know
