I have been training and competing in powerlifting for about 7 years. Currently, I compete both in Raw and single ply meets. Long term goals that i would like to accomplish at some point in time would be an 1800 lbs raw total @275, 2200 lb single ply total @ 120+kg, And I would like to compete at, and if possible win, IPF Junior worlds. Thank you for following my training. It’s comments and people just like you that me motivated and keep this fun.
