I would like to thank Adam for his help and support at the meet. One might think that you wouldn’t need a handler at a raw/unequipped meet. You can get by without a handler, but having Adam there made a big difference. I knew when I hit the platform that my depth would be good on the squat. The support, encouragement, and coaching helped me have a successful meet. Thanks once again to my awesome wife Tiffany for filming my lifts and supporting me. Thanks to Henry for his support. This was hands down my best meet ever. I am on the right track with my training thanks to Jim Wendler and his 5/3/1 program. This is an awesome program for raw lifters and could be used for equipped lifters as well.
