The most important thing you wrote was that you “love” powerlifting.
Then thats what will get you the most progress and satisfaction. Stick with powerlifting.
I’m too tall, too thin, and too old to be olympic lifting (started late after a boxing career)
but i absolutely love it(almost as much as being in the ring and trading left hooks) so i don’t care.
Get your ass into a competition.
What the hell are you waiting for?
You will learn from the experience.
Hell, Marvin Hagler didn’t have his first fight for the middleweight championship of the world.
He went through alot of fights to get there.
Don’t be one of these guys who just goes to the gym to train.
TRAIN FOR WHAT???
Do something. Compete. Live.
Oh, just on the side, are you allowed to use olympic shoes in powerlifting meets?
I don’t know the specific PL rules, just that its 3 lifts,
1)PL Squat (half of an olympic squat) :o)
2)PL Deadlift (one third of an olympic clean and jerk) :o)
3)PL Benchpress (thats the one you do lying down right?) :o)
i prefer a different kinda “exercise” when i’m lying down. But we will keep this post clean yeah? Hey i’m not that old…yet.
actually saw Eddie Coan compete live in Raleigh NC back in the day.
Badboy.Depth was NEVER an issue. Kade Weber looks like your competition.
get your ass into a meet.
And bust it up.
