Finland

Well, I must say a few things about this trip before the fun starts again for the Arnold. I don't make excuses for failing.If I screw up then I accept this.I did not fail in Finland.I was bombed out of the bench.The first they said I double pumped.The 2nd,I did not lock out completely.The third,one judge called me on my foot slipping out before the press command and the others called me double pumping again,I guess.They were all new judges with no experience in big meets or benches over 600.Sweeny was announcing and Wayne was overseeing the event.I should have gotten 2 to 1 decisions on 2 out of 3 benches but I didn't. My first deadlift would have won the Heavyweight division.I am not whining about it, I am just stating the facts for anyone who wanted to know.This was something out of my control and I hate the fact I flew several thousand miles and spent alot of money to go home under those circumstances. The only good this is that I will be back in the gym sooner than I was going to be.I have alot of work to do before the Arnold.




Get it done,
Marc Bartley
