I have been powerlifting on and off for 2 years now (mostly on, with a few months here and there where injuries/military schedule have set me back) and am happy with my results and am continuing to get results, but one thing I have always been unsure of is if my body type is right for powerlifting, and hopefully some day competing. Since I started training I went from weighing approximately 145-150 lbs and benching 175 lbs 1 rep max, squatting 185 1 rep max, deadlifting 225 1 rep max, to weighing 180-185 lbs and benching 265 1 rep max, deadlifting 405 1 rep max, squatting 315 x 8 (unsure of one rep at this time, had a large spike in gains and havent maxed yet).
I have a very slim frame (i still wear the same size pants as when I weighed 120) and am unsure if continuing to powerlift and gaining weight will be good for my body based on the fear that my smaller frame isn't going to be able to handle much heavier lifts. I really hope that this is NOT the case because I want to continue pursuing my goal of being able to some day compete. Let me know your thoughts, any feedback is greatly appreciated.
