4 Oct 2014 - Sat
Competition Day!

Axle Press/Log Press Medley: Axle weighed 85 lbs and the Log was 100 lbs. I got 2 reps of each in the 75 seconds. Pretty happy with this, they did lower the axle weight because there were a lot of newbies, but it was still good. Second place.

Last-Man-Standing Deadlift: The increments the officials went by were crazy! I got second in this as well, weights went: 155 lbs, 205 lbs, 225 lbs, 245 lbs, then failed at 295 lbs because they just wanted to throw 25 pound plates on each side for a 50 pound jump. It would have been a 20 pound PR for me, but it wouldn't budge from the ground! Second place in this, winner got 315 lbs.

Yoke/Farmers Walk Medley: 300 lbs yoke over 50 feet, then back with 120 lbs each farmers. Did it in 26 seconds. First place!

Atlas Stones: 140 lbs and 160 lbs went up. 200 lbs would not. Almost tied this one, but was too slow! Don't remember the exact time now - the winner also failed at 200 lbs but was faster than me so second place again, and overall :)

Hatebreed's Not My Master came on my Pandora when I started. Man, I needed that. "Today is worth fighting for." Yesterday on the other hand sucked a big ol bag of dicks. Onward and upward though!

Went on a nice long hike yesterday morning :) , but was then called into work :(

Zurcher Squats: 10 x bar, 65 lbs, 95 lbs, 95 lbs, 95 lbs

Should have stayed home today! Exhaustion from extra work shifts this week is causing terrible lupus pain and I feel sick all over. But I pushed thru because my training has been too inconsistent lately and that is no way to handle comp prep. Was supposed to be a squat day but my shoulder is immobile, hence zurchers. Don't need to raise a shoulder for those :) . Kept it pretty light though.
