Training / Meet Prep
I got mono sometime in December, so I didn't lift for about a month, so getting back to lifting was pretty rough. Then I started Project Momentum 2017, which went really well for me. I tried to increase the 1 @ RPE 8 singles by 2.5 lbs/week for bench and its variations and 5-10 lbs/week for sqaut/deadlift and its variations. I technically did not finish the program because I got sick one week and had to push everything back a week, which worked well for this meet, but the deadline for the questionnaire was 4/26, so I filled it out with my current PRs, which was still a big improvement. Sorry Mike T.
Thoughts / Conclusions
I'm really happy with this meet because I got a lot stronger and picked some great attempts. I got 4th place in open and 2nd in juniors. I qualify for raw nationals as a junior, but I'm going to age out of it by October, and my total is 12.5 kg away from the open limit, so I cannot lift there.
