Meet Recap: 800kg total for Patrick! This is the meet we’ve been waiting for where everything came together on meet day and Patrick could truly display the progress he made on the platform. PRs all around, with a 644lb. squat, 418lb. bench press, and a 700lb. deadlift for an 82lb. PR total of 1763! The goal on the day was to hit 800kg, and Patrick was able to accomplish that on his 2nd attempt deadlift, and going into 3rd attempts it became very interesting. There was jumble at the top, and to keep it short, if Patrick hit 728lbs. it could have taken him from 4th place to 1st place overall based on him winning a 3 way tie breaker on bodyweight, so there was no doubt we had to load it up. We took a run at it, but unfortunately just as he went to pull the right side rolled forward a good 2-3 inches into a divot in the platform and just glued it to the floor. But to say there was some serious hype going into that final deadlift with what was on the line would be an understatement!
