hey everyone, might as well give you some basic info before i start this log.
im currently 21. in 2nd battalion recce platoon, 3.5 years in the army. im 6’3" and now 231lbs. i started powerlifting when i was 16, joined the army a month after my 18th birthday (fall of 2007), at that point i stopped powerlifting and got into running and conditioning work.
got serious into running and cut to 195lbs, with a 18:19 5km, and a 1hr 29min half marathon. still doing weights but they werent the focus. last summer i started powerlifting again, got to 213lbs and competed in a full raw army meet in december, went- 355/265/525 for a 1145 total @213bw. from december 2010 until 2 months ago i was doing crossfit and dropped to 198lbs, i competed in a national army crossfit comp in march and finished 2nd of 80.
