    First meet today


    Weigh in is in 50 minutes, kinda stoked but pretty nervouse. It's a push and pull. So I'm going to use this thread to mark my progress. Sadly enough the past 2 months have not been the greatest. The last time I dead lifted was about 3-4 weeks ago. I got 410x2 (sadly that's my greatest lift, I feel)
    Bench is pretty bad hoping to get 275 but I have yet to try 275 with pause bench. Normally I can get up to 295 for 2 without the pause.


    Weight ATM is unknown
    Heigh 5'11 been trying to cut to around 183 but as I said these past 2 months I've put on some fat due to family sickness.
    Gonna be one hell of a journey.

    Why did u take such a large jump from lift 2 to 3 on the bench. You jumped up 10 between 1 and 2 them 30. Just curious at why lift 2 wasn't 265. Did u have all your lifts planned out or did you base it off how u felt with each lift. Just wondering.

    Haven't been lifting much this past month with my back/traveling. But I lifted back today. Dident do much just 7 sets of Deads and some lat pull downs. I'm trying to slowly rebuild my strength back up. Today 315 was hard to grip.

    Hey bro, I'm subbing along! I love powerlifting and you got some good numbers there!

    Just one question...

    If you want to compete why not try a Powerlifting template for lifting? Some 5/3/1 or a West Side variation?

    That's cool man, most of this is really having fun IMO, you don't get to cash in gym time hours (experience hours) by just doing everything you are told or a preset template. If you enjoy it and like it , and heck if it works for you just keep at it and enjoy! My question was simply because I do follow a West Side variation and I like knowing what other Powerlifters do to improve their big 3 , and also become stronger all-around.
