Deadlift Competition - 22Jan09

Things didn't go as well as I'd hoped. At the last minute, I decided to enter the DL competition on base, thinking that I should be able to set a new PR. My first pull was an easy 370. On my second pull, I wanted to do 405 (a new PR), but the collars added an extra 5-lbs, for a total of 410...I easily could have asked them to change it but I thought, "What difference will 5 pounds make?" Big mistake. I pulled the weight to my knees, but couldn't drive the hips through to lock out the weight. I'm confident that 405 would've gone up though. Chalk one up to inexperience. Moving on....
