I starting lifting using the Wendler program about a year and a half ago. i am 50
i started lifting wendler about 1 1/2 years ago, and haven’t lifted much since playing football in college. would ride bike/P90x type things prior to lifting and would say that i was in average shape prior to starting wendler
i don’t know anything about powerlifting meets, but i was looking on-line at meet results, and if i am reading correctly, i think that i would do ok in the bench. not so much in the others. would like to try it summer 2017
i would compete in either 242 or 275 weight class
would be in the raw/natural class- which i assume means wear a t-shirt and no steroids.
i think i have pretty good form, but i would guess that in a contest your maxes would be less with a judge watching.
anyway, here is approx, what i can do.
bench- got 435
squat- haven’t done a max. had ACL repaired years ago, and although it doesn’t bother me, i have just done reps of 10-12 ATG at 315-345#
would probably just compete in bench. think i would be out of my league on the other lifts.
i think it would be fun to give it a try. any advice/thoughts?
i appreciate it.
