  6. So this comp was booked and paid for about 2 months ago and I was really looking forward to it. I felt really well prepared. In my build up I walked out and squatted 270kg for a triple, pulled 300kg in the gym and was benching 160kg for reps every session. I was so confident of smoking my total of 725kg. 2 weeks to the day before my comp, I was doing my last heavy bench session and boom, did my pec. I did 160 as my last warm up no problems and wanted to finish on a 170 double. I felt in control on the way down but as soon as I went to press I felt a small tear of the tendon. It felt like bubble wrap under my skin being popped. At this point I thought there was no way I could compete but I thought I'd go anyway to support my training partner. Anyway after 2 weeks of tirelessly working on my pec everyday I thought, f**k it. So I weighed in at 98.4kg to compete in the 100kg juniors. Squat I warmed up to 250 in wraps and it felt easy. Not the best I've done but certainly not a confidence knock. I opened on 265kg and felt confident of going for a pb on my second, so I took 277.5kg. I squatted the weight easily enough but was red lighted for depth, even though it almost looked identical to my opener. So for my third I took the same weight again and sunk it as low as my hips and hamstrings would let me and got it passed for a new pb. It was a bittersweet feeling though as I almost knew I had a pb there and would have liked it to have been bigger than 2.5kg. It looked easy enough and there was definitely more kilos there. Onto bench. I had initially planned to open on 165 but lowered it to 140 because of the injury but whilst I was warming up I could feeling it really pulling quite painfully through all the painkillers on 120. So I lowered it again to 130 and then that was me out for bench . A shame because the strength was there. Finally deads. I set my opener for 272.5 and warmed up to 260. There was no doubt in my mind whatsoever. Pulled 272.5 no problem. I set my second to 282.5 for a comp pb and that was just as easy. So I set my third to 290, which was my pb up to about 10 days before. I pulled 290 and do feel it was the right call as I don't think 300 was there that day. So all in all, a squat pb, and a comp deadlift pb. I didn't get the total I wanted as I was injured but I would have needed to bench no way near my max to hit a pb total which is a good place to be. If I can stay healthy for the next one I'll for sure be around a 760kg total. Total 697.5kg with token bench which is my third biggest total lol
