So I haven’t been lifting for about 2.5 years (strangely it coincides with getting married) and want to get back after it. I spoke with the state and national chairpersons for the NASA powerlifting federation and they are letting me enter the grand nationals competition at the end of June in Wisconsin (it’s about 15 minutes from where I live). They have unequipped divisions, which I will enter, but I’m not sure if I’ll be in the 198 or 220 weight class.
I’m hoping for any motivation, chastising, inspiration, advice, etc. I think I weigh about 217 right now (down from about 235 this past winter) and I want to post no less than a 1300 total, ideally a 1400. I realize it isn’t fantastic numbers, but but hey, I have about 7 weeks to train and I’ve become a wuss!
My previous unofficial bests were 565 deadlift, 525 squat, and 330 bench. Those were all done weighing between 194 and 204.
On a shameless promotion note, feel free to further chastise me because I’m growing a mustache (but it is for charity). You can donate to my cause if you’d like, visit www.maystache.org. I’m John Jr. on the site, raising cash for the boys and girls club.
