I have been lifting for over 20 years,have always loved the heavy weights. Started training in powerlifting about a year ago. I just completed my third competition. Currently I am only training in Bench Press as I decided it was better to do one lift at a time. I am going to start training in deadlift this month. I benched 181 lbs in my last competition.
I am 46 and weigh 236 lbs at 5'3' tall. Wow can't believe I admitted to that! I love this sport but am a little embarrased at how big I am getting. I keep telling myself that its my large frame. My arms measure 16.4 inches flexed so I know I am putting on some big muscle. Interestingly I am a world record holder in raw worlds because I am the only one in the world in my division.
