Basically, I'm looking for the next step here. I've done almost a year of beginning training, I enjoyed it a lot, and now I'm looking for a program that would eventually prepare me to do a powerlifting competition. (Let's say, I would want to be ready by a year from now.) I'm willing to take this quite seriously, but I obviously have a long way to go.
I started lifting last November. Did Starting Strength, which I think is probably finished for me by now, since there's no way I can get squat PR's three times a week any more. Made some beginner's progress: when I started, I was using just the 45-pound bar, and now (for reps) I squat 180, deadlift 245, bench 105, seated press 75. (I'm female, 21, 5'6'', 130-ish.) Given where I am at the moment, where do you think I should go from here?
A few points:
1. I don't have gym access for the next couple of weeks, so this post is just for planning ahead. Right now I'm running and doing bodyweight stuff.
- My squat form needs fixing. Mainly, I'm rounding my back something terrible. I think I'll need a little time to work on technique with lighter weight than my max. I may even cough up the $40 for a session with a PT to sort out this mess.
Any advice would be much appreciated!
