My 825 wasn’t great, I got a little forward and out of position on the decent and had to work twice as hard to lock it out.

I was really smoked after this session and didn’t do any deadlifting.  We are focusing on hitting the 1000 lb squat for this meet and everything else is secondary.

So far I’ve been keeping my bodyweight between 282 and 285.
