Masters Lifting Class: Here I Come!

Next year is the big year. I will officially be in the masters class. I will be turning 40 in June. When I first set foot on the powerlifting stage in 1987, not in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would make it to the masters class. To me it has been a long and winding road filled with many successes and failures both on and off the platform.

Nope, no belt! Things are going very, very well here in Montana.

Yesterday, I did use the Icy Hot before I trained. Today, I might be hitting the Advil. Sorry, but no Preparation H or Metamucil will be used today.

Damn you’re old! (sheesh, probably doesn’t even shave yet!) You’ll be amazed how quick 40 will sound young. Missed you biggun.

Thanks Hel320. I took a break from some heavy training. I re-injured my sciatica and that set me back. I feel my mind is getting on the right track to do some hard lifting. I will have to see what happens.

Tonight, I was going to train but I had to finish an assignment that was due for class. No class tomorrow, so I will get in a training session either early AM or afternoon.

Nah, if he has that stack, he doesn’t need the Preparation H
