I've been training for two years now without any real focus on strength until lately. It turns out I really like it. So what better motivation to get stronger then to enter a PLing competition.
I don't have any specific dates yet, but I'm thinking mid 2012 if I can find one. I'm currently trying to contact a local PLing team to see if I can get in with the group.
I have two kids under the age of three, so time is precious for me. I do have a home gym built with most of the required equipment. Cage, rack, oly set, power blocks, bands, home made platform...
I'll be looking for all the wisdom I can get in here as I have a lot to learn. I'm working with a modified WS4SB template and am enjoying it. I had a pretty significant back strain on Sunday that I'm trying to bounce back from and so far it's healing really fast.
I have a couple of 1RM tested lately:
Sumo DL: 365lbs
Conv. DL: 365lbs
Old Squat 1RM: 275lbs
Those numbers are my baseline and I hope to go up from there. My weight this morning was 169lbs.
Thanks for reading and I hope to learn a lot here!
