Meet Recap: PR Squat, PR Bench, and PR Total for Patrick at USAPL Raw Nationals! Patrick finished with a 601lb, squat, 402lb. bench press, and 639lb. deadlift, which gave him a 1642lb. total and 470 Wilks! Biggest adversity of the day was on Patrick’s 3rd squat, he had a bit of happy feet and wasn’t getting the start command. The head judge had him re-rack the bar, only then to have 20 second left to walk 601lbs. out again and get reset. Patrick grinded it out for a successful attempt, but definitely was harder than it would have been if it wasn’t for the re-rack. Patrick also finally eclipsed the 400lb. mark on bench press that we’ve been chasing for the past year!
Deadlift was the only lift that wasn’t on point for the day, mainly due to 601 being harder than expected and Patrick’s back being shot from that grind, but in all it was a phenomenal day with a 42lb. meet PR, 13 point Wilks increase, and another Arnold qualification!
