2015 NASA Gilmer, Texas Open Meet Results

My meet went exceptionally well today, much better than expected. My decision to compete was last minute, being I only decided last weekend to compete at this weekend. My training has been going well and I was motivated to compete. I didn’t make it down to 198 for the meet. All week I have been 3 to 5 pounds heavy and decided that having a good competition was more important than competing at 198. I weighed in this morning after breakfast and weighed in at 208.5 pounds.

I went 9 for 9 for the day. All of my third attempts were max attempts. I didn’t leave anything on the platform and although these weren’t my heaviest lifts, this was one of my best meets based on hitting my true max on all 3 lifts.
