It's about time I start up my Millennium Sponsored Log here at Anabolicminds. First of all, thanks to Millennium for the sponsorship. It's a great opportunity.
My name is Chris Popovich, I'm 30 years old, and I compete as a powerlifter with a strong lean towards bench specialist in the 275lb weight class. My best competition shirted bench is 650.3, done at a body weight of 254lbs back in September of 2005. I have had a rash of injuries since then, that culminated in me cracking my forearm attempting to bench 700 in late 2006. That recovery took upwards of a year. As I started back, I put a little more focus on my raw strength, and benched 440 raw at the Nov APF meet in New Hampshire in 2007.
I actually was going to begin this log a little earlier, but 5 weeks ago while doing a few reps with some lighter weight I felt what is best described as tearing steak in my right pec. I have been doing a pretty intense rehab since then and have finally made it far enough that I can commit to my next competition.
The next competition for me is July 27 APA push pull in Freeport Maine. In addition to benching and deadlifting, I will also be competing in the strict overhead press. This isn't a usual powerlifting movement, but I want to do it for the fun of it. I will be competing raw and plan on weighing about 265lbs.
I don't really like to talk about numbers pre-meet, but if all goes well I'd like to bench something over 450, deadlift somewhere around 600, and strict overhead press something near 300. I prefer to do my talking on the platform.
As far as supplements, right now I'm using the following from Millennium:
