  1. New journey powerlifting

    Ok so I haven't ever done a me in powerlifting. Ive signed up and weighed in first one tomorrow morning. Hopefully I get a lift in all 3, main goal don't bomb out. Will be in San Antonio tx competing raw classic 242's wish me luck cause after this we h e a starting point and nothing but room to grow.

  2. Well powerlifting meet #1 done pretty good beat my goal and went 7/9 on lifts missing my final bench and deadlift. The bench was no good but think I got robbed on the deadlift. As soon as I figure out how I will put video on. Results were


    Took 1st out of lol. But better than that was my total does qualify me for worlds which is in Vegas and any reason to go o Vegas is a good reason.

    I will start updating with my workout as I go and if anyone knows how to upload video from my iPhone to the app let me know.
