Attempt 1: 170 easy

Depth on all were good, i just need to work on staying more upright during the next cycle

Attempt 1: 140 easy opener
Attempt 2: 147.5 form was terrible on this but managed to muscle through
Attempt 3: 152.5 good lift. form was a lot better this time and left a bit in the tank

Total 602.5kg @ 108.98 kg bw

I was happy to get 9/9 lifts as that was the goal coming in to the contest. Thanks to kevin and the team at get strength for all the help leading up to the comp and john for doing my wraps on the day. I’m looking forward to Auckland champs and improving on my total.
