I’m currently in meet prep for the RPS Lexen Spring Fling in Columbus, Ohio on May 9th, 2015. I will be competing in my first multi-ply meet, going bench only at 148 pounds.

Saturday's deadlift training was ROUGH. There was a ton of pulling, but I felt I made some great strides this session. I really attacked a ton of my weak points and really got to feel some heavy weight in my hands again. This is a minor isometric block for my supplemental work as well, so it was just an overall killer day. In two weeks it will be nice to see the kind of speed I have as it should carry over nicely.
I'm also making good improvements on my grip work as well, which is nice to see. After a tough training day, I went to Friday's to smash all you can eat apps with the training partners and to watch some basketball. Overall a great day of training, and slowly getting better at fixing this damn deadlift.
