I'm probably going to do another local powerlifting meet in about 5 months, it just depends on my schedule in college because I would have to make a trip home and its right around finals week I believe.

Looking good man! I think i regognize the gym in your pictures, and if i'm right you have one hell of an atmosphere surrounding you! Not to mention those guys are the best of the best!


#11

yes sir, im really blessed to have those guys take me in when i was just a beginer 4years ago. I am really lucky to learn as much as I have from guys like that, strength beyond gym is prob. has that kind of loyality to its members that most commercial gyms just dont have. I couldnt ask for a better atmosphere.

Im gaining weight, just feeling a little bloated (as to be expected though). I pulled a new pr 410lbs yesterday, and Im going to try and do it again this weekend so I can post a video. Im going home for the weekend so I will have access to a video camera, and be able to workout at my real gym!

great stuff, have you been bulking/ cutting lately? what are some of your goals that relate to bodybuilding or power lifting etc. ?


#20

I have been bulking, for about 3 weeks, and Plan to keep going up but not limited to 10-12 weeks. It really depends on how my lifts are going and how Im feeling. My powerlifting goals are posted at the top of the page along with my first pic. I also have a few bodybuilding goals that I didnt post, which include add overall mass to my calves, traps, and add to my pathetic biceps. I kind of keep my bodybuilding goals to myself b/c the power lifters give me shit for it, lol, but none the less I just want add more mass.
