Well its been over a week since the comp so I guess I should post an update....

Mixed feelings about my result, not my best total by far.  Weighted in at 65.7kg which put me in the 72kg class and my first comp in the Masters 2 category.

Squat was a rather paltry 140kg (M2 record never the less)  having missed my 135 opener on depth and failing my 3rd on 155kg - lost balance.

Bench Press was the highlight of my day. Unusual because I am notoriously a poor bencher, I opened with a comp PB 95kg.  Dave jacked my shirt for attempt 2 at 100kg  but I struggled to get the bar down and missed the lift, 3rd attempt got the shirt just right for what felt like a really easy 100kg (M2 record).  Think I would have had the planned 105kg had I not missed the 2nd attempt.  Was absolutely stoked! 100kg - That's a decent bench press.

Deadlift - well that went off the boil after the amazing 200kg pull in training and in the week preceding the comp I failed to pull 190 which was going to be my opener...  Lowered my opener on the day to 180 and missed - grip issues, 2nd attempt 180 and got it - (Open Record) and then tried for 190 on the third attempt but my grip failed again.

Totaled 420  - 17.5kg behind my best total.  It was a learning experience anyway. Certainly the shirt jacking proved to be a success, I know what I need to work on for my deads and my squat... back to the drawing board.  It has now sunk to the lowest, poorest lift of the 3 disciplines of powerlfting for me.  I must fix this!

2nd attempt 180

3rd attempt 190

Congrats on winning the Bench Press Title. Very cool. I admire the dedication it takes to achieve in weight lifting.
