SPF SC Championships Log(Single Ply!!)

Hello everyone, it’s been awhile since I have posted my training on here. The SPF SC powerlifting Championships are January 26th, 2013 in North Myrtle Beach, SC. This will be my first meet competing in single ply gear. And I am hoping to out total my best multi-ply total(which is 1450). If thing go as planned I should total 1500 or more in single ply.

My bodyweight right now is around 228lbs, so I’m hoping to make the 220’s. Goals for this meet is 550/430/520. I use alot of Wade Johnson’s training methods and get alot of advice from him

I’ll be using a Titan Super Centurion and Inzer Groove Briefs for squats and deadlifts, and a Inzer Rage X for bench.

Please follow along with me, makes comments, whatever.

(I injured my left glute back in May and for the most part it is better, but if I stretch it or move a certian way there is some pain still there. And now my left hip has been bothering me and right hip is starting to hurt a little as well. So I am hoping this very light extra stuff will help prmote recovery in those areas by pumping some blood in them.)
