Meet Report

I sucked...

Warmups were so-so, I opened at 380kg/837lbs and missed it, I also dumped the bar about 3/4 of the way up, as I couldn't stay on balance. This is frowned upon in case you didn't know. I always squat in a power rack w/o spotters, so dumping the bar is habit. I didn't get kicked out of the meet for this, though I should have been, regardless my head was screwed for the rest of the day. There was a lot of uproar about my 1st squat and I had lots of people coming up to me between attempts criticizing me, rightfully so probably, but I still wanted to punch them all in the face. I approached the bar for my 2nd attempt at 837, with the words 'take it' in my head. I missed about 3/4 of the way up again, still not being able to stay on balance, I knew my day was done regardless of what happened next, so I passed the 3rd and got out of there. Luckily the meet was in Vegas and I had the companionship of my friends and lovely young lady, so I managed to still have a good weekend.
