So yeah. . . 11 years ago I competed in a powerlifting meet (GPC/WPC combined US/Canadian nationals). I placed 2nd in the 275 category with a 601, 430, 578 day.
Then my mother died and I kind of retired till around 2009. In 2009 I started training hard again. . .until in 2011 training for nationals my left distal biceps tendon decided it didn’t want to be part of the party while deadlifting 635. At that point I’ve gymmed off and on until 3 months ago.
3 months ago I went and got a membership at the local community fitness centre and started my journey back, I even went back to training in my beloved Westside style.
Then July 22nd it happened. . . I competed at the CPF Summer Slam and went 606, 441, 551. The first two were meet PR’s (I’d done better in training prior to the biceps) and the deadlift. . . well let’s not talk about that.
Now I’ve changed gyms as a much more lifter friendly gym opened literally 5 min from me and it looks like I’m back int he powerlifting game. So this will be my log. I’ll try to keep it up and the more conversation, comments etc I receive the more likely I am to do so.
So yeah. . .
