Good luck bud. Nice and light in the end then! Lol
All the best for tomorrow mate!
The steroid master won't steer you wrong
Heed his wise words
Fuelling up all day with Liam (not lifting as lifting in Euros), and two of Liam's mates - Dean (same as Liam) and Rob (lifting in tested u110 class). Food has been going in fine, cals off the scale, Zantac and Immodium in, feeling parched still though.
We all met up with @JB tonight for an Indian, looking healthy, big and strong.
@Greyphantom is lifting in u110 BPU so will see him and I believe Welshy (@welshguy84) is coming down.
Should be a decent day, eating 200g Whole Nut, 3 snickers before bed with 2l sparkling water.
Folkestone BPU u125KG Masters 2 Raw with Bare Knees
I didn’t sleep the greatest but was up early, in the buffet breakfast, loads more food and breakfast juice.
20 mg Halo and 50mg Mest before each of the lifts (SQ, BP and DL).
Warmed up to 240 in sleeves, feeling heavy and form not 100%.
270 (bare knees) - form not great, onto toes and leaning over, went up fine but not happy.
290 (bare knees) - got told this was a British Record (u125 M2 Bare Knees) before the lift, added a little pressure, again form sloppy but got it up OK, took a lot out of me, called squat here, no more, this is a qualifier after all and I had another six lifts to go.
Warmed up to a super fast 140, felt real good.
145 - felt heavy, form not great.
150 - boom, tech is tight as fook and blew this up. Great.
155 - LHS phaggotry was evident but went up OK.
Warmed up to powerful 240.
270 - boom, smashed this up, feeling lower back and fatigue now though.
290 - about 95% all out, went up fine, never in doubt but slower than I would have liked. This was another British Record (u125 M2 Raw). Called it here due to lower back and fatigue.
I won my category and got an invite to Brits and Euros, also got 2 British records to my name.
Disappointed in my total, I only needed 20kg more for a British Record total. There was a little more there in SQ and DL if I had to push and I got +5KG on my bench.
Onwards and upwards to GPC qualifier at Genesis at end of March. I’m still not training to peak for a comp, long term aim is to peak for Brits in GPC and BPU.
Liam was a legend, his two mates (Dean and Rob) were great and saw a lot of lads I know from around the game. Great weekend, wish I could have hit 750+ though.
Cracking day big man. Bench PB and 2 British records you couldn't have done much more than that. Recoup and get ready for the finals now! Impressed for you!
Well done Ken.
Plenty of time for the BR total mate!
As you say, this is a qualifier and with 2 BR lifts, was a good day.
Lift selection and calling on some was good decision too.
Awesome mate well done
Big big congrats bud.
Some huge lifts there.
Well done mate
Top work today
Cracking lifting mate.
Good to meet up with you and Liam and pals last night gutted about missing it today.
Is right ken, smashed it there! Great work made up for ya
Awesome ken well done bud
Well done mate. Looked like you still had a bit in the tank. Can’t grumble at a couple of records at a qualifier!
