[Spoilers] How the Byrdes have positively or negatively affected all the other people in the show.

Back in S1E01, Marty came very close to being killed by Del. If he had died then, there is also a good chance that Wendy would have been killed too. Charlotte and Jonah I think would have been spared. Good news for them is that it looked like the Byrdes were doing pretty well financially, they would have gotten millions of dollars of cash/assets in inheritance.
So that's what didn't happen. But Del did not kill Marty, and so the Byrdes moved to the Ozarks and pretty much fucked up the lives of every single person they encountered.
Here is my subjective list of outcomes for all the other characters the Byrdes have met over the 3 seasons of Ozark, and some notes about how the Byrdes have affected their lives.
GOOD: Buddy Dieker (he's dead but he was gonna die anyway, made a friend in Jonah, had some fun before he died rather than just dying alone in his house) Sam Dermody (well paying job, met a girl, more self confidence) Omar Navarro (they won him a drug war) Carl Knarlson (lost his business, but got paid, and lost his shitty wife)
Jim Rattelsdorf (true neutral, so far) Ruth Langmore (lot of good and bad here, I could see people placing her in "bad" overall so far) Rachel Garrison (failing business to running away rich, emotional damage) Harry (they saved his failing funeral home, but now he's somewhat wrapped up in the whole mess) Nelson (almost true neutral, but I don't think he liked having to kill Helen, Sue) Frank Cosgrove Sr. (lots of headaches, but lots of new business too)
Tuck (where's Rachel?) John Nix (Byrdes just an overall pain in the ass) Charles Wilkes (same as above) Maya Miller (same as above, her integrity beginning to crumble) Trevor Evans (this dude's a mess) Darlene Snell (lost her husband, autonomy of the region) Three Langmore (lost his dad, uncles) Wyatt Langmore (lost his dad, uncles, met a cute girlfriend though) Erin Pierce (found out her mom is a criminal, and now she's dead) Frank Cosgrove Jr. (RIP his tiny penis)
Cade Langmore (probably end up dead or in jail anyway though) Jacob Snell (was pretty old already, didn't seem too beat up about being killed by his wife) Sue Shelby (looked really old, and that fuckin car) Ben Davis (okay let's be honest, this dude just assaulted a high school groundskeeper, how long do you think he could've stayed out of jail/an institution by himself?) Roy Petty (this guy was pretty messed up already) Russ Langmore (already a petty criminal, but sad) Boyd Langmore (same as his brother, but more innocent) Anita Knarlson (would've just watched her husband run a failing casino otherwise though) Garcia (was living that good evil henchman life) Ash (same as above) Del (he seemed to be doing okay in general) Helen Pierce (things a little shaky, she got waterboarded, but probably would be alive for much longer) Eugenia Dermody (eh fuck this bitch) Bobby Dean (this dude had a pretty chill life with his pregnant and ugly strippers) Gary Silverberg (dude was happiest he'd ever been, according to his son) Grace Young (I still think it was mostly Mason's fault, she tried to warn him) Mason Young (this dude's life got FUCKED. UP.)
As you can see, that list of DEAD and BAD is a lot longer than GOOD or even NEUTRAL. The Byrdes have done a whole lot of damage since they moved from Chicago, maybe it would have been better off if Marty and/or Wendy just died back then? In season 4, with the Byrdes and the cartel on one side, and the Langmores/Darlene/KC mob on the other, is it really that easy and obvious for you to cheer for the main characters?
Don't get me wrong, I think Marty's great, and the kids are mostly all right, and Wendy - eh. But I'd take Ruth and Wyatt over all of 'em, and while it almost certainly will be the case that Ruth realigns with Marty somewhere down the line, if it doesn't and they stay at war, I'm for Team KEEP IT LOCAL baby.
edit: forgot Buddy! Definitely one in the good category.

Louis Theroux: Gambling in Las Vegas - Where they are now

"Gambling in Las Vegas" is my favorite Louis Theroux documentary, and I end up watching it every few years. Youtube keeps taking it down, but you can still find it here:
I've always been curious about what happened to each of the gamblers. For context, this documentary was filmed in 2006, so it was a few years before the financial crisis. I did a lot of research and this is what I found:
Allan Erlick. The high roller from Toronto who lost over $250k during his trip. His company Bedford Furniture was sold off in 2009, likely as a result of his gambling debts and the economic downturn. There was a rumor a few years ago that he was driving for Uber. He seems to be keeping a low profile and can't be found on social media.
Tim Nordahl & John Salem. The two salesman who went on a weekend bender playing blackjack. Both live in Arizona and look to be doing just fine. John runs a drug and alcohol rehab called Fountain Hills Recovery.
Dr. Martha Ogman. A retired dentist who has lost millions on the slots. Martha is now 92 years old and still lives in the same community featured in the documentary.
Richard Wilk. The high roller handler. He works for a different casino now, but still handles high rollers and celebrities. He's very active on social media:
Dan Rodgers aka "Dan the man". I can't find any information on this guy. I think he may have actually been an actor working for the casino. If you rewatch the scene it's pretty fishy. Louis goes up 50% turning his $3k into $4.5k and Dan cuts off the game. Dan was the only winner featured in the documentary, and I think the casino was trying to sell the idea that not everyone loses. If anyone knows who this guy actually is I would love to know.

[SPOILERS] S2E2 - Wendy's character is written inconsistent

Wendy Byrd's morals are not written consistently in this show.
In the first season Wendy was having an affair, she was not only cheating on Marty she was quick to take the money out of his account. In season 2e02 she had no qualms about blackmailing and extorting a politician to get the bill passed.
However, when Wilkes wanted her to have sex with him so the bill could pass, Wendy got all moral and refused. It's later hinted that Marty would have actually have been okay with it and Wendy even seemed a little upset at Marty for asking "well, did you do it?"
So Wendy is willing to cheat on Marty and risk her family for free but when it comes to passing a bill for a casino (which will ultimately save her family's life), and with Marty's approval she wasn't willing to do it? This makes no sense.
EDIT: Whoo boy, I didn't anticipate this much butthurt over my post. Keep it coming. 🙂 Also, obligatory tnx4thegold

The week prior to the meet, I went in on Wednesday to the gym and worked up to 2x3 at 315 on the squat, and 225 on the bench.

[SPOILER] Theory: Marty is going to run for governor.

I think that S3 will see the casino successful and that results in freeing up the day-to-day laundering issues for the Byrdes. Wendy is definitely thinking about what she wants next. The cartel is going to see the community influence of the Byrdes continue to grow. Wilkes isn't going anywhere as a character and the Kansas City mob is the most immediate threat going into next season-- two different factions that the Byrdes will have to figure out how to resolve. Wilkes has influence, power, money and wants to keep Missouri a right-to-work state in order to profit off of it but the Byrdes are going to have to give the Kansas City mob their promises union jobs. We've already seen Wilkes and Wendy start to square off a bit and I think that is only going to grow. The only way to out-play Wilkes will be to at least match him in influence and power. The big way to do that and keep the mob from blowing up everything else you own? Tell Kansas City their jobs will be there once Marty wins his gubernatorial campaign. Helen is already hinting that the cartel wouldn't mind seeing what the Byrdes want to do with their community status and they for sure wouldn't mind having a governor in their pockets. Plus, Marty would be basically terrible at this so it would be fun to watch. :)

[Spoilers] Thoughts and some questions about season 2 finale

Just finished the last episode of season 2 and overall I think season two dragged a little. I know it was centered on characters and relationships over plot but the bureaucracy and bribing and Wilkes over the casino was just too much and bored me eventually. Also, it felt like they had this casino as the be-all-end-all, so even when main characters were dying or being threatened, can't forget "the casino!" It just seemed like low stakes compared to all the problems it was causing.
I didn't find myself caring about Rachel much and I think it says something that she wasn't even in the last two episodes. It was interesting though that they introduced the drug use with main characters, probably because of the opioid crisis now?
I loved finally seeing some emotion from Marty and seeing Wendy be as cold and calculating as she was, but Marty giving Darlene the baby was the one action by him that went too far. I realize that logically it was the best thing for their family which is the essence of Marty but I hope they can get Zeke back next season.
I thought Charlotte being so aware of how ridiculous their family was and how toxic was a good show of self awareness but then nothing happened with that emancipation sooo...
Petty dying seemed anticlimactic because it was such a random death, but someone mentioned elsewhere that it was the most realistic thing.
I'm upset Jacob's dead because Darlene is crazy and ruins everything to the point where her character is no longer interesting. I'm glad Cade is dead although I'm surprised and a little disappointed that Wendy went so far.
I don't think it's sustainable for them to stay in the Ozarks but I see that Wendy thinks they can run something legitimate and be happy there so we'll see. It's like when she had a hunch about bribing the casino guy and it ended up being a plan by the FBI.
I do have questions about the conversations Helen and Wendy had. Was Helen suggesting the cartle knows something in the kitchen? And what were they talking about in the office? Something that will change her whole body?
Just my attempt to organize my thoughts and think a little more clearly about season 2.

The Dunder Mifflin Office being robbed in Season 5, Episode 5 “Crime Aid” was not a coincidence

[THEORY] In this episode, as I’m sure you all know, Michael & Holly briefly exit the building before returning back inside to fool around. The following day, our beloved characters return to their office to find that all of their possessions have been stolen, including Kevin’s surge protector.
Excluding the Scranton Strangler, we’re lead to believe that the Wilkes-Barre area is generally low crime & peaceful. So what sense does it make that it happens to be robbed on the same night that Michael & Holly haphazardly forget to lock the joint up? That’s an enormous coincidence, & one that is far too unlikely for me to accept.
I have a couple working theories.
The most fun one is that Creed, being the interesting character he is, actually spends way more time at the office than he lets on & visited sometime after Michael & Holly left the office. Then, he stole a bunch of equipment in the hopes of selling it, which is right up his alley as we’ve seen numerous times throughout the show (selling office equipment, stealing chips on casino night to get his first refrigerator from Bob Vance, etc).
My second, & prevailing theory, is that somebody from the documentary team actually did the deed of robbing the office. They were filming Michael & Holly outside the office & would have known when they left. In addition, they also would have known if they, say, forgot to lock the office in their lustful stupor. This would be a tempting draw for an opportunist looking to make a quick buck. They have access, can delete footage at will, & can use the documentary as proof that Michael & Holly left it unlocked so it could be anyone, thus giving them deniability. It’s the perfect crime. Someone on the documentary crew robbed Dunder Mifflin.

It's nice to sort of just summarize the meet and the story around it on your own terms without having to worry about an audience that only cares about the big details. I am also looking forward to USAPL Raw Nationals in 4.5 weeks so I figured I'd write this to hype myself a bit for the chance to compete in IPF Worlds again.
Background / Journey to the Meet Well, it was a fun story to get to this meet. To qualify for IPF Raw Worlds, you are supposed to take 1st in your weight class at USAPL Raw Nationals. Well, that's hard to do in my case because the reigning champion is also the 7-time world champion. So I ended up on the alternate list based on my Wilks and willingness to remain on the list. I was 4th on the alternate list but bumped up to 2nd because 2 people ahead of me did not have any interest in heading to Minsk, Belarus.
But, I was initially left OFF the alternate list because I was signed up to compete in the USPA US Open in April. I had to fight for that alternate spot, which I was only given after I removed myself from the US Open roster. This, to me, was really silly. I hadn't violated any rules by being on the list for the meet, and people drop out of meets all of the time. I had to go through an appeals process to get my alternate spot back. Even after the appeal, I was #2 alternate, so I didn't think it would happen. Ironically though, 10 weeks out from the meet and literally the night before the US Open meet, I got a call that a spot had opened up. All that headache was worth it, and I accepted on the spot. Minsk, here we come!
I had been planning to do a meet around the time of Worlds regardless of whether or not I got a spot on the team. The past 2 years, I had also gotten off the alternate list late, but declined to accept a spot because I wasn't prepared (either way overweight for the weight class or just not mentally ready to commit to such a meet). This time I had resolved to actually be prepared in the event that I'd get off the list, and sure enough, it happened. Great success.
Competition Day
So, I get to the meet, as prepared as ever. I knew it would be a battle for 3rd with the two Swedes going in (Isabella von Weissenberg and Annika Zelander). My meet PR total was 492.5kg and theirs were 495kg and 487.5kg, respectively. I also knew that Kim Walford and Ana Castellain would be untouchable in the 1st and 2nd place spots, so the focus was on getting to the podium. The plan for the meet was to make all attempts and push my competitors to pull a weight that they weren't capable of. My attempt selection was more about playing the competition that day instead of hitting huge PRs. There's a time for huge PRs and a time for strategy, and this was the first meet I've competed in where strategy was more important than big PRs, so I think for that reason it was the most exciting meet I've competed in thus far.
Anyway, here is the breakdown of the meet. Link to meet results
Squat I knew I would be starting the meet slightly behind my competitors on squat. Annika's PR squat was 180kg and Isabella's was 192.5kg, so I knew I'd have to plan to make all 3 attempts here to put myself in a good position to push ahead on subtotal on bench.
Opener: 165kg / 363kgs, good, fast, great way to start off the day 2nd: 175kg / 385lbs (2.5kg PR) 3rd: 180kg / 396lbs (7.5kg PR) - somehow I got 1 red for depth here, but that just means depth was perfect! Not complaining at all about that. Video of all squat attempts
I think I could have gone as high as 185kg on squat and made it, but my handlers had predicted my competition would miss their 3rd squats. Sure enough, they missed their 3rds and I made my conservative 3rd attempt. A great start to the day. This was also an incredibly satisfying PR because at Nationals I had missed a chance to PR due to my squat technically falling apart. I had cleaned up my technique in the past year and it surely paid off. If nothing else went my way that meet, I would be happy to come home with this PR squat.
Bench Bench is far away my best lift and I was sure I'd be able to medal here. I came home with a silver medal after Ana Castellain with 3 successful attempts and 9 white lights:
Opener: 112.5kg / 248lbs 2nd: 120kg / 264lbs (2kg PR) 3rd: 122.5kg / 270lbs (4.5kg PR) Video of all bench attempts
I would say I had 125kg in me on bench, but again, the goal was to build a total and not make mistakes. Annika missed her opener due to technical failure, and Isabella lost her confidence on bench and missed what should have been an easy 100kg for her. So, given the circumstances, it was OK to play it safe here. Two red plates will go down at my next meet.
Deadlift Again, we were here to put whatever I needed on the bar to get on the podium (but also within reason and what we thought I was capable of doing). I left my attempt selection to my 3 handlers, and boy were there disagreements on my 3rd attempts. After 2nd attempt deadlifts, I had a 500kg total, Isabella had a 500.5 (she had chipped the WR on squat with 193 and benched 97.5kg), and Annika 495kg. The ultimate decision was 205kg, and I just barely missed it.
Opener: 185kg / 407lbs 2nd: 197.5kg / 435lbs 3rd: 205kg / 451bs, Posterior Chain RPE 8, Grip RPE 10.5. MISS due to grip while getting the down command! Video of all deadlift attempts Aaaand here's that third deadlift one more time
Now, I should have been thinking about the fact that my hands were feeling swollen and my 2nd attempt didn't feel so great in my hands. But I didn't communicate this to my coaches, thinking everything would be OK. But in hindsight, I should have said something. I have a feeling that the water cut and sodium load plus a big bench makes my hands feel puffy, because I had held 205kg for 10 seconds in the gym during prep. Oh well, more to learn and improve on.
Isabella and Annika ultimately missed their third attempts. It's hard to say what was the "right" third attempt. I could have gone a little more aggressive on my 3rd squat or bench, but then Isabella could have pulled 212.5 instead of 215 for her third deadlift and made that. Regardless, I am happy with my performance and that's all I was able to control. 7.5kg total PR, 7.5kg PR squat, and 4.5kg PR bench for 4th place by 0.5kg at my first IPF World championships.
People to Thank I was in great hands on meet day thanks to my 3 handlers, Andrey Grebenetsky, Bill McCarthy, and Sioux-z Hartwig-Gary. Andrey did my meet prep and idk what I'd do without him. I am the most uncoachable person ever and he somehow coaches me. Bill also helped me fix my squat and that was a game-changer. And thank you to everyone who has supported me thus far and watched the livestream!
Re: Minsk Minsk was not somewhere I ever thought I'd visit. But let's just say it fulfilled every post-Soviet state stereotype you would expect. There was a military parade with tanks rolling in the streets, which was a rehearsal for their July 3 Independence Day parade. There was literally a mob killing of one of the World team member's family members. A Master's lifter's nephew "fell off the balcony" in a hotel that had a casino, after an altercation with the Russian mob. There were cheap vodka shots everywhere, to the tune of $0.50/shot anywhere. Mink coat stores in the mall. Oh, and the venue where they hosted the meet had a nightclub in the basement where they hosted the IPF banquet. Everyone got drunk and it was a crazy party. I hadn't partied like that since college.
What's next? You might imagine that missing the podium by 0.5kg was a real heartbreaker! So, I am working tirelessly to get back there and move up in the rankings. I just have to get there first, either by winning Nationals or hoping my Wilks is high enough and a few people drop out.
TL;DR: Competed in my first IPF Raw World Championships, went 8/9 in a nail-biter fight to the end, had a lot of fun but no one cares about 4th place. I hope to be back.

[Meet Report] IPL World Championship, Las Vegas, Nevada. 75kg/165 lb. class. 649kg/1432 total. 465 Raw Wilks.

Meet Prep: Started meet prep for this competition back in early September. The meet I did in October at MetroFlex where I totaled 1,344 was about 1/3rd into the prep phase and was really a “feeler meet” which I needed to do so I could qualify for IPL Worlds. The initial 4-weeks of meet prep for IPL Worlds was done in a structure much like the last meso cycle of Jacked & Tan which sort of looked like this if I remember correctly:
(For those unfamiliar with how I structure my training read this as it may be helpful to your understanding of this post and maybe even to your own training. and here is the simple more TLDR version
Monday: T1 Squat, T2 Deadlift
Tuesday: T1 Bench, T2 Close Grip
Wednesday: T1 Front Squat, T2 Squat
Thursday: T1 Close Grip Bench, T2 Bench (higher volume)
Friday: T1 Deadlift, T2 Front Squat
Saturday: T1 Bench, T2 Bench (Long Pause)
(Warning, it’s similar to that structure, but not exactly. Like all higher level athletes their training has changes that are made on the fly in order to accommodate their progress)
After MetroFlex I realized I was getting fairly beat up in my training and was unsure as to whether or not I would be able to sustain similar progress for another month leading up to IPL Worlds. So I switched up my meet prep structure to look something like this:
Monday: T1 Squat, T1 Deadlift
Tuesday: T1 Bench
Wednesday: T2 Squat, T2 Deadlift
Thursday: T2 Bench
Friday: T3 Squat, T3 Deadlift
Saturday: T3 Bench
I found this to be very effective because it allowed me to front load the heaviest and most difficult to recover from training sessions at the beginning of the week and follow those up with easier and easier sessions. This kept my frequency of practice with each competition lift high (3x per week), my volume high, and most importantly allowed me to linearly progress my intensities manageably, safely, successfully.
You read that right. I did linear progress on this. Just using my T1 lifts here’s how it looked:
(Again, this is how I drafted it out but during the session I would play it by ear and there were days where the weights were 5-10 lb. heavier or lighter but the following was my starting outline)
Week 1
Squat: 385 x 1 + rep x 1 set
Deadlift: 485 x 1 + rep x 1 set
Bench Press: 295 x 1 + rep x 1 set
Week 2
Squat: 405 x 1 + rep x 1 set
Deadlift: 505 x 1 + rep x 1 set
Bench Press: 305 x 1 + rep x 1 set
Week 3
Squat: 425 x 1 + rep x 1 set
Deadlift: 525 x 1 + rep x 1 set
Bench Press: 315 x 1 + rep x 1 set
Week 3
Squat: 445 x 1 + rep x 1 set
Deadlift: 545 x 1 + rep x 1 set
Bench Press: 325 x 1 + rep x 1 set
My T2 and T3 structures also increased linearly but obviously at lower intensities and higher volumes. I simply focused on inching up my weight lifted each week while maintaining the volume in a relatively similar ballpark.
The final training session before the meet was me feeling out my openers the Monday Prior (November 3rd) where I worked up to squat 455x2 set, a new 2RM PR for me. This was heavier than I planned to go but I was feeling great and wanted a new PR. I got a 325x2 bench set in with pauses and then passed on testing my deadlift as that takes a few more days for me to recover from.
I weighed in two pounds under at MetroFlex and that was without doing a harsh water cut. So leading up to IPL Worlds I made efforts to put a bit more weight on, whether it was fat or muscle I didn’t care. About two weeks out from weight-ins I started going low carb but kept my calories high by making my protein shakes with some half and half or whole cream in there. Yum. My daily meals were a few chicken breasts, some cottage cheese, a PB&J sandwich, and lots of almonds whenever I needed a “snack.”
And burritos were involved every day leading up to the final week before the meet.
The Cut
This was going to be hard and I knew it. In order for me to be competitive I needed to game that 24-hour weigh-in window as much as possible. This is a facet of powerlifting that some don’t like, and if that’s you, too bad. It’s the name of the game (unless you’re USAPL) and I can play the game well, so I do.
The Friday prior to the meet (October 31st) I started sodium loading. This was done low carb so I stuffed my face with a ton of pork rinds, beef jerky, and salty cheeses. I sodium loaded through Sunday, November 2nd. That day I also began my water loading by consuming over three gallons, probably close to four gallons of fluid. At least 2.5 of that was distilled water. That night I stepped on the scale at 182 pounds.
Began going low sodium and kept low carb (and Creatine free) from Monday, November 3rd to the 5th. These three days were like a flood from god though as I was drinking close to four gallons of fluid per day. Each night I was going to sleep weighing at or over 180 pounds and waking up around 175 to 177 pounds. This water loading and sodium-loading phase is intended to make your body flush those substances out as quickly as possible. That way when you cease drinking you’ll dehydrate faster and hold less water because of having less sodium in your system.
That’s a lot of sleepless nights waking up to pee.
Also from that Monday to Wednesday I drastically kept cutting my calories. By Wednesday my goal was less than 750 for the day.
Thursday I started my drive from San Diego to Las Vegas which took me about five hours. I started the trip at 175 pounds. During the trip I started my dehydration phase of the cut and only consumed a 16oz zero calorie Monster at the beginning of my drive. While driving I bought some mint gum and sour Ice Breakers sugar free mints. I used these to help me salivate a ton. By the time I arrived at the venue of the competition, the Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino, I had spit over 1/4th of a gallon into a water bottle and urinated 2-3 times.
My teeth hurt from salivating so much. It was disgusting.
I checked into my hotel at 3:30 pm, got to my room, urinated again, then turned the heater on full blast. I continued to chew gum, suck on sour mints, and spit for a few more hours. Around 6 pm I was down to 170 pounds and somewhat nervous that I wouldn’t make weight. It was then I started taking scalding hot baths for 20+ minutes at a time followed by drying off right away, donning my rubber sauna suit, and then climbing under all the covers of my bed for an hour or more so I could sweat my excess water away. My room was hot as hell and I was miserable. I did this a total of four times Thursday night and into early Friday morning.
Oh… one more thing, I took the advice of a friend and slammed a single shot of liquor every hour on the hour for a total of 5 hours. This was done to help me flush water more effectively, not to get drunk. He broke down the science to me of how it worked and how I should only do it if I needed it. And well, I needed it. So thanks buddy.
No sleep the night prior to weigh-ins. Losing excess water was important.
By the time 7 a.m. on Friday, November 7th rolled around I came in at 74.5 kilos (164.25 lb) on my bathroom scale. I walked down to the Grand Ballroom where the meet was being held and signed in for weigh-ins and waited for 2.5 hours. Stepped on the scale and got my official weight.
A ½ kilo under my max. Perfect.
The Re-Feed
Ok, if cutting weight was miserable this was just as much so. Although eating food is great and I love it… this isn’t the time to enjoy food. It’s time to eat food like it is your job, which isn’t fun at all.
Some think eating a bunch of protein would be helpful. Not so. Eat a ton of salt and a ton of carbs. These are much needed for attaining a bloat that would rival a zeppelin air ship.
Promptly after making weight I chugged a whole Pedialyte and ate a pack of Pop-Tarts, then powerwalked to my truck and drove to an amazing restaurant for a killer breakfast. Hash House A Go Go. I ordered an eggs benedict which came served on a mountain of mashed potatoes and slathered in amazing gravy. I also ordered a 12” Snickers bar pancake and a large apple juice. I devoured the eggs benedict and potatoes in about 15 minutes and got ¼th of the way through the pancake before I got the food sweats and was nauseous.
I should also mention that I was drinking water intermittently throughout the drive to the restaurant and while there too.
I got the rest of my pancake in a to-go box and drove back to the hotel drinking water and snacking on the pancake. Got to my room, ate two Reese peanut butter cups, and passed out for a few hours.
I then woke up, got a large Starbucks caramel frap with two cranberry bliss bars, ate those, drank another Pedialyte, and another package of peanut butter cups. I was having a midday dessert while waiting for some friends to get to the hotel so we could then go to my choice dinner. Which if you guessed was a badass burrito spot you’re correct!
Get to Taco y Taco and killed a mind blowingly good chicken burrito and a giant thing of carne asada nachos as well as about 32oz of delicious horchata.
I need to make it clear once more. Although the food was delicious I was nowhere near comfortable during the whole day. I was filled to the brim and whenever I felt like I could eat or drink more I did. After feasting at Taco y Taco and enjoying some good local music and bullshitting with some good friends I went back to my hotel room.
Here’s where it gets amazing.
Too full to eat or drink I had the resources available to get a medical professional to hook me up with an IV and I took 1,000cc’s of sodium chloride solution. This felt amazing and honestly after it was done I walked around and I noticed that my lats seemed to have turned into two giant water balloons hanging from my back.
… That night I went to sleep at 182.5 pounds.
The Meet
1st Attempt: 429 pounds/195kg: Good Lift. This was an easy opener. Get the nerves out. I’m in the meet. Easy.
2nd Attempt: 474 pounds/215kg: Good Lift. Decently easy. A bit of a slow lift but got it without losing confidence. This was my best deadlift at my very first powerlifting meet as a 148 pound lifter.
3rd Attempt: 501 pounds/227.5kg: Good Lift. A grind half way up but thanks to this amazing squat article and killer advice from gnuckols I made the lift. Beat my best gym lift by a whopping 1 lb. and was at this point tied for 3rd.
1st Attempt: 308 pounds/140kg: Good Lift. Easy openers like I prefer. In fact so easy the side judge was pretty dumbfounded.
2nd Attempt: 330 pounds/150kg: Good Lift. Pretty easy. Glad I made this lift. 2x bodyweight bench in competition in the books.
3rd Attempt: 347 pounds/157.5kg: No Lift. Grind the whole way up. Locked it out but due to massive technical failure I missed it. The side judge told me to go big so that if I made it I could secure a better spot for total. I’m happy I made the attempt but upset I missed it. Oh well. Next time.
Between the bench and deadlift I ate an intra-meet breakfast burrito.
1st Attempt: 529 pounds/240kg: Good lift. Easy opener. This was actually my best pull in competition as a 148 pound competitor at this very same meet two years ago. Pretty cool milestone.
2nd Attempt: 573 pounds/260kg: Good lift. Got this no problem. It was much faster than anticipated. Made the jump to my next attempt with massive confidence.
3rd Attempt: 600 pounds/272.5kg: Good Lift. Three whites. No grind. Easier than making toast. Stoked beyond belief.
Apparently state or national records can’t be set at world championships otherwise that 600 pull would have been the California state record. But then it would have been promptly beat by Steven Lopez who absolutely crushed a 640 deadlift or some non-sense… And then Rositlav Petkov who crushed a 661 deadlift. Steven then made a strong fight for 662 but missed at his knees.
The Total
Totalled 1,432 pounds/649.something kilos! For a Wilks of 465.01 (The official one isn’t out yet, this is my close estimation using online calculators) That’s an elite total in the USPA and just 66 lb. under international elite.
Hell. Yes.
This places me tied for 10th in the US for current year and 16th on the All-Time list.
I got 3rd place in the 165 pound/75kg weight class in the Men’s Raw Open category. I barely eked out a placing over Bruce Randall by 10 pounds or so. I lost 2nd place by about the same I think (although am not sure as to the actual amount). However the Bulgarian machine Rostislav Petkov took home the win, and with a 4th attempt deadlift for the IPL World Record, he totaled 1,650 pounds…
That’s right, a 10x bodyweight total. He got best raw lifter overall too. Something like a 540 Wilks score. WTF?!
Other Points of Discussion
This meet was massive with something like over 350 lifters across four days and many, many, big names. I got to meet some of the greatest lifters to ever compete and a couple all-time world record holders.
The one thing I noticed was that the biggest and strongest dudes in the room were the coolest most down to earth guys. They offered help, advice, and were casually joking around and talking with everyone. These guys were cool as hell and I’m extremely thankful that I had the opportunity to meet them and talk with them.
All in all everyone was very helpful and the meet was marked by a high amount of lifter camaraderie. Although we were competing against each other we all wanted to see the guy next to us do his best. Hell, after the competition I went to dinner with the guy I barely beat!
Not only that but I got to sit down on Saturday and Sunday for a few meals with hands down, one of the greatest lifters to ever touch a barbell. For this, I am extremely grateful. I learned a lot, had a blast, and am honored.
Moving Forward
I’ve got to work towards a 1,500-pound total and break into the Top-5 165 pound lifters. I’m not going to compete for another couple months so that means a lot of “fun” training and going by ear. Pretty much I’m going to chase the pump for a while!
My next meet will hopefully be Raw Unity 8 if my finances can afford it. I’m also considering doing the LA FitExpo depending on whether or not I get an invite. Both are elite level meets and I’d be beyond stoked to lift at either. I likely won’t win but that’s ok… I’d see a 1,000+ lb. squat and meet some of the greatest lifters on the planet.

SPOILER A few leftover questions from this season...

There were a couple of things that happened this season I didn't understand. Did anyone catch the answers to these?
Thanks if you have any answers. These few issues stuck in my head as I watched the season.
