27 Aug 1 week out RPS Boynton Barbell
Currently I am finishing up my precontest meet prep for a meet next week on September 2nd at Boynton Barbell. This will be a home gym meet for me, which is more than welcome at this point. RPS will be hosting the meet and we are happy to have them at our gym.
Well, it happened again. Somehow 4 months of training has passed me by, and the meet is less than a week away. It isn’t that I am not prepared for the meet, just that time slips by faster than usual while in a meet prep. I have to remember that following my last bad performance at the end of May, I couldn’t wait for this meet to be here.
Thursday was 10 days out from the meet, and the plan for me was to hit my opener squat, opener bench, and somewhere around a last warmup pull on deadlifts. The consensus on how many lifters are going to be competing seems to be at less than 40, so it is going to be a quick meet. Keeping this in mind, I was taking my warmups as fast as possible in the event that’s how the pace will be on meet day. If the number of lifters stays under 40, I plan on taking all of my squat warmups before anyone in the meet takes their first squat.

Bench day had to be pushed back until Saturday morning. My girlfriend’s sister was in town and we all wanted to go out to dinner together. Sometimes things like this need to still be a priority over training, and bench day was easily and thankfully pushed back. I was pretty gassed from taking all my squats and deadlifts at a fast pace, but I’ll be ready on meet day.
I had some deep tissue done earlier today by my LMT Robert who will also be at the meet to see some of his work in action. My girlfriend and all of our gym friends will be competing together, so I am ready for a fun day. Thankfully I have Jason and Lisa on board to help us with all of our Inzer gear and wrap jobs.
