Byrd 1,100 Squat XPC Prep


Time to put up or shut up! I fly out to Columbus on 3/4 on the same flight as several of the 10/20/Life crew. To say I am excited would be an understatement. Training has gone great, I am healthy, strong, and focused. Things are really beyond where I thought they would be, I just need to focus on getting my job done on meet day. Believe me, I am not going there to make any friends. In fact I will probably leave a lot of people with a bad taste in their mouth, but I don’t really care about your feelings I am there to compete.

Shut it down there. Legs were pumped, I had been in the suit way too long and it had taken its toll on me. I decided it was best to leave it there. I have a good idea of numbers for meet attempts, but an idea and what you do are two very different things.
