Hello Everyone and Welcome to my log. My name is Kevin and I have been honorably chosen to run a stack provided by JD and Athletix Sports. I'm currently in PHASE III of my training which began in January. This summer I have made it my mission to get as lean as possible while maintaining all my strength. Many people spend a lifetime by bulking and cutting. I on the other hand have gone on multiple schemes to cut weight and each time I do I actually gain weight. In fact I gain very easily.
Over the last two and half years I've competing in several Powerlifting contests. One as recently as June 23-24 @ York Barbell, called the 2012 IPA Powerlifting Spectacular. I started with PureAthletic Power and began building my brand from there. PureAthleticPower or PAP is a non sanctioned venue which continually grew within the Southwest Virginia Area but failed to give anything worth being proud of. I have collected several plastic trophies and certificates, all which have made their way into the trash. The guy running PAP has billed the participants for large amounts to participate and purchased cheap awards. I have earned nothing less than first place in the RAW SUBmaster SHW division This last contest I earned a significant trophy which has made me proud to hold and cherish for a lifetime. A new chapter has begun in my career.
To go back a bit furthur, I stand 6'5" and weigh according to York BB, 351.2 lbs. Wow. Since last August 2011 I weighed in @ 308. All which has been gained utilizing nothing but natural products. Sure you can call BS in fact, I will even go furthur to tell you summer 92 I weighed in @ 190. I grew up playing basketball all my life until I graduated colege. My downfall of weight gain began when I broke my ankle senior year as a ROTC Army Cadet @ Shippensburg University. One thing no one told me was you can't eat like you do if your not running or balling. Thus began a huge rollercoaster of gainning and losing weight until I topped out at 290 in 2005 while in the Navy.
Did I ever play football? I never played growing up except a little pop warner, yet daily I get mistaken for playing RIGHT now. Folks I just turned 39 last friday. I have walked on to two semi pro teams in the past HAMPTON ROADS BULLDOGS, BLUEFIELD BARONS and possibly this fall I may walk onto an ARENA team in Kentucky, 45 minutes away.
Why the long winded history. It's not nearly enough to explain who I am. It is enough to get you started. I never in my life have I utilized enhancements or any other drugs to gain my size. In fact I always try to lose it, yet I gain and it's a bit ridiculous, I will not sacrifice my strength to do it.
I averaged 405 on the press but 425 is a personal best in competition, I have pushed a 450 in the gym. Utilizing the USPLABS line I have gained a tremmendous amount of strength throughout last year and now. My lineup currently is /Formula X/ .
I follow many logs on this forum and decided to add my own in order to hold myself accountable but to continue striving for the big 500. Nothing will stop me. I plan on updating weekly. I love powerlifting and plan to do it till I can't lift my arms. Without furthur ado lets get this started! Salute!
