thanks man, I really appreciate that! I don’t put a lot of stock in the rating, ya know? If I wanted to have an 8 rating, I’d have to be a blonde girl with a huge ass. Apparently that’s how you get a high rating in this section.
It actually serves me pretty well to stay light, since powerlifting is my focus. So keeping excess fat off is pretty important. 215ish at my current level of leanness is probably something of a long-term goal for me. I think the 198 weight class is more reasonable for my height than 181 is, although my numbers are nationally competitive as a 181. I believe I’ll be the 25th ranked lifter in the country in my class when powerliftingwatch updates their board. I’d like a higher ranking, and I don’t think I can achieve much more as a 181.
