W6D1 FORM ISSUE. Let the weight get in my head and my depth was shit. 152.5kg for 2x5. Identified a movement pattern difference and seemed to fix it on volume sets of 137.5kg for 3x8. Super shit, but best sort it now, than get 🔴🔴🔴 in Comp. Forever improving

Choosing a path worth working hard for
Myrtle Beach Bar Bash: 237 Sq, 132 Bench, 303 deadlift...... Finished with a 672 total and took 1st place in my weight class..... And a heck of a headache 😳
Overall I'm OK with performance. This being my first meet since I whacked my head I think I did decent. Definitely not content though. I missed my last squat bc I bottomed out and lost all my tightness. For my bench I was going for 143 but lost that too.
In hind sight..... If I'm going to train stimulant free (for the most part) I should compete that way. The lifts I missed weren't heavy at all. I was definitely having drouble focusing. All I can do at this point is reflect and learn from my mistakes.
The meet was well run, fast, and professional. Everyone was so nice. Even the sportsmanship shown was fantastic. I will definitely be competing with @usapl
I can't wait to compete again and see what I have to bring to the table after I hone in on my lifts some more. Thanks so much for the great training @m_vargas66
And support from all my closest friends. @itsandybohn @farnhamr @tarradoll @nv_63kg @kathy_wilson13 @johnny_utah_osu @dominicrowden.
I wouldn't have been able to accomplish any of this without your support.

As I reflect back on my first year in San Francisco, I cant help but to think back to those dark months where I felt l utterly alone and helpless. I will never forget those moments where I thought there was no way out and that I would be stuck in this sinking, black hole forever.
🔆“You are the creator of your own thoughts.”
This quote really sticks with me because it has taken me way too long to realize its’ truth. I am the creator of the thoughts that go into my head, whether they are negative or positive. I had drowned myself in negativity until I realized I had to stop. I knew that if I wanted change, it would start with ME.
And that’s what I did. I focused on getting myself out of this never-ending black hole and I swore to never EVER look back.

Complete shit show of a performance by me yesterday! First of all thank you to John Micka for putting on a great meet like always. Came in at 236 the lightest ever for a meet. Had a good refeed and was 255 Friday night. Went 2-2 on squats with 628. Passed on my third because couldn’t keep up right and was not taking the chance of the weight going over my head on the spotters. 2-3 on bench with 451. Had downward motion on my second and had to retake it for my third. 1-3 on deadlifts only getting my opener 716. Blacked out while locking out my first attempt and dropped it. That has never happened to me before and still don’t know why it did. So it had me all messed up in the head. Anyways didn’t get hurt so thankful for that. Time to go back to the drawing board and fix EVERYTHING! #uspapower #powerlifting #uspa #sbd #inzer #ironrebelpowergear #tmnutrition
