  • USPA Beast of the Northeast

    Long story short for those that don't read my journal...

    I hit both my bench attempts and realized during deadlift warm ups that my belt was stolen from my bag at the gym sometime in the last week. I frantically drove to the gym and searched for it and found other stuff of mine that I keep in my bag in the power room laying out and no belt. I freaked out on the owner/meet director as there have been theft issues ranging from 25lb plates to someone elses belt to water. The gym is 24hrs with a key code to main gym and key lock to the power room. 8-10 people keep there bags there and I was just as mad at myself for being trusting and leaving my bag in there. I will leave it in my trunk from now on. I tried to borrow a belt but was mentally not into it at all and the belts I tried were too loose. I had no desire to pull beltless so I withdrew.

    Anyway, opened with a 341 bench and got a 352 second before passing on my third.

      Good work. 341 looked really easy.

      Did you at any point consider just pulling beltless? Just for the fuck of it? If nothing else could have set yourself a nice beltless PR..

      I actually thought about at my next meet opening with a 500 squat, completely raw(no belt, wraps,etc) just as kind of a personal goal, to do it in competition.

          Nice benching man, that is strong as hell

          Total horseshit someone stealing a belt. Someone is actually walking out with 25 lb plates? What the fuck is wrong with people

            Pulling beltless means nothing to me.

              Believe it or not yes... And not just 1 or 2. There were 6-8 brand new 25s taken. Pretty pathetic.

                Got ya.

                Guess I am just too stubborn, and competitive to not lift for something like that.

                You did the smart thing though. I would probably get hurt, and feel like an asshole..lol

                  Seriously, this.

                  I'd be running around like a chicken with its head cut off. Good job!
