Hello all. I’ve been lurking for a while as you can see from my post count. I just wanted to introduce myself and interact a little with my older brethren. I just turned 45 and I am contemplating taking part in my second powerlifting competition.
I competed in my first competition earlier this year (June)at 220 and posted a 402 squat, 259 bench and 418 deadlift. I got 440 up but received 2 red lights. The lifts were in a singlet with only a belt. I have videos and will try to get them loaded.
I just returned to lifting a 1 1/2 weeks ago after a 4 week layoff due to a low back injury (from doing good mornings) and being a lazy ass. I pulled 425 last Thurdsay and squated an easy 315x4 yesterday. I had been following 5-3-1 (yep I bought the book) since after my first meet and I beleive it was serving me well.
Well that’s all for now, as I said I just wanted to introduce myself and interact a little more with the T-Nation community.
