18 Feb Jonathan Byrd 1050 Squat 770 Deadlift Miss
Currently working my way down in weight to lift in the 275 class at the XPC Finals. Looking to improve on my all-time best lifts of 1040, 725, and 730lbs. I am also taking on additional online clients for personalized training. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
The work is nearly done! As I write this I am exactly 14 days away from being in Columbus, Ohio for the XPC Finals. I have one big squat left (Saturday) and its pretty much openers and cruise control.
The 1050 squat moved slower than I would have liked. It is pretty easy to see the issue though, I am a dumbass. I set up under the bar about 3inches off center. So I guess its safe to say that I can mess things up and still power through a 1050 squat.
Deadlifts moved well. The 715 was pretty fast, and I decided I would give 770 a try. Really the weight moved fine, but I let myself get a little forward on it and could not recover in time.
So where does that leave me? In a position to change things at this meet! There is no reason for me to lack confidence, zero! I am stronger than I have ever been, hit bigger numbers in the gym than I ever have before, and have done more meets than most of the people in my class. If I hit the numbers I am capable of, then I will be in good shape when the end of the meet. I have no issues with lifting on a big stage, but if you are a mental midget the atmosphere at the XPC will eat you alive.
