I was wondering if there are any powerlifting clubs or coaches in the southeastern Wisconsin area. I live about 30 miles west of Milwaukee (in Hartland). I got into powerlifting about one year ago and am hoping to get some coaching or find a team for motivation so I can become more competitive and serious about my training.
If there isn't a team but a couple veteran powerlifters in the area that wouldn't mind training me once a week or so, I'd be interested. Wouldn't really have any $$$ to lay out for it, so I need someone that would do it for the love of the sport. Could just involve me training along side of you once a week. I have a buddy of mine that may have an interest as well, but he's mostly into Strongman stuff.
Coming out of a stretch of time with injuries and things, previously competed in the 198 weight class. Be interested in moving to 220 or staying at 198 for another year. I would like to be ready for the Hudson Natural Open (USAPL) that is in Hudson, WI this coming October. I've never used any equipment (no belt, wraps, or suits) and I don't know if I need to start using them at this point. I'll let you be the judge.
PM If you want my number or something to talk about this.
