First year player, at age 41
Dayton Area Rugby Club - Flying Pigs
5'11 @ 230 at beginning of summer training, 215 now.
Still trying to find where I fit in best. Played some loosehead prop, some blind side flanker, and mostly lock due to a lot of team injuries. I think flanker will be my more "natural" position.
best lifts (not close to these right now, raw, incl no belt FWIW)
Squat - 425 (gym lift)
Bench - 320 (NASA meet)
Bench - 350 (gym lift, no pause, no bounce)
Dead - 440 (NASA meet)
I ruptured my left distal bicep tendon in a game in late Sep. Surgery 1 Oct, rehabbing well, but obviously weak a hell.
Love the game and the loonies that play it. Wish I had found it sooner. Can't wait to get back out there.
