Actions Speak Louder Powerlifting Log


#1

Had a log on here before my first comp in 2012. I got 170 / 107 / 230 in it at 90kg. Injured my back shortly after the comp and my shoulder not long after that which was lucky.

Currently 23, sitting at 100kg on the nose
200 / 125 / 250

Wanting 220 / 140 / 265 by any means necessary.

Will be tracking my progress on here once again.

Peace
