Ironsmasher's Viking Powerlifting Journey to Valhalla

Gonna start a log on here. Had one on a different forum but it didnt have the powerlifting community this one does. For around the last 7 months I was training multiply with A crew and a great coach but recently had to leave them due to work schedule and getting ready to move home. I competed once in multiply gear. Recently switched to raw lifting due to a hip disformity that conflicted with the super wide stance squat. I’ve only been PLing for about a year but have established some pretty huge goals. This year I went from 190-250 BW, I took my raw squat from 295 to 445, raw pull from 425 to 485 and my bench from 275 to 315+ ( hasn’t been tested in a while).

I’ll post some recent training videos later.
