Welcome to my first log on T-Nation
In a nut shell I want to be good, if not great, at all things lifting.
The bulk of my 6 years of training has been primarily powerlifting in nature and has gotten me to a 425lb squat, 320lb bench, and 550lb deadlift (competition) in the 198lb weight class. More specifically I have done Bench, Squat, Deadlift, and OHP only for almost all of my training (Think: CT’s Original HP Mass program).
Unfortunately, the world of weights involves much more than the Big Three, leading to a more recent desire to master other disciplines and ultimately gain more complete control of my body.
Recently (9 months or so), I have been adding more olympic lifts into my training and have really enjoyed the High Pull as well as the Clean and Press, as I have always enjoyed explosive lifting.
Unfortunately, I have identified a rather gaping hole in my skill-set as a lifter, primarily my mobility, relative strength, and shoulder positioning.
My current method for addressing this problem is to train using only my body weight, focusing on relearning proper positioning and movement patters as well as improving mobility.
Long Term I hope to perform at high level in all three of these disciplines (Powerlifting, Weightlifting, Gymnastics) as they seem like very complimentary endeavors rather than competing ones. More specific goals will evolve over time, I’m sure, but right now my focus is on what it should have been from day one: proper movement and building my body From the Ground Up.
