I’ll try to keep this short and sweet. I’ve been training a little over 2 years seriously. I’m a college senior who originally started training because I was a walk on for our football team (D-1, or ‘fbs’ now). That didn’t quite work out so I made the switch to powerlifting. I don’t train exclusively for powerlifting all the time, but focus on it when I am approaching a meet.
I screwed around with weights in high school while playing football and then went 2 years without training before I decided I wanted to try and walk on. Here are my stats:
21 years old
Best meet lifts (raw, 181 lb class):
Squat: 450 (knee wraps)
Best gym lifts:
My current goals are centered around a meet coming up on 2/28. I’m in the process of trying to lose some weight so that I can cut down to 181. Right now I’m around 201 and I hope to get down to about 195 before I do a Kroc style weight cut to 181 (24hr weigh in). I cut from 193 to 181 very easily for my last meet. I’m looking to total at least 1300 and finally get a 300 bench in a meet. I’ll detail my plan in my next post.
