I’m currently in meet prep for the 2015 XPC Finals at the Arnold Sports Festival during the weekend of March 6-8th. I will be competing on Friday, March 6th, 2015 at 132 pounds, raw with knee wraps.

Saturday I got in my last heavy squat and deadlifts before the meet. I just took some openers and modified seconds, very light accessory work and I got out. I just overall felt like crap, and it's due to the amount of work I've been doing leading up to this. Usually these last few sessions just feel sucky going into the meet, but considering I can hit them in this state, that means they are certainly safe, but good attempts. I wasn't the happiest with my work either. My squat descents were too slow and I pushed the bar out in front of me on my block pulls. Little minor things I've got to clean up before meet day, which I'll do on my assistance days. I can't complain as I still got the work in, I just would have liked them to be a bit more crisp. I'll get it dialed in on Tuesday though.
