Yeah.
Making all three C&J was a real concious decision. Teammate/coach Jeff told me after I called for 105 that he thought I had 110 in me, but I really wanted to make all the lifts. Something about hitting the last three felt, well, more respectful to the even, rather than going for a 110, which I've made before, but might not in my state. Just honor the meet and make a good lift with real form.

It looked like from the way you pw. cl. 102 that you could have pw. cl. 105 as well, had you wanted too. Nice pulling!

Thanks. It was a high catch. I think I used the first two C&J as warmups.

Next time we follow up that contest with some serious curls in the racks.

It must be a CT open thing.

That is an interesting mat. Lifting on some dudes face. Your lifts looked really clean.
