First I’d really like to thank everyone on these powerlifting forums for being so active and helpful. Not only when people replied to my posts, but also the great discussions that were had here, that I’m sure helped out many of us. This community really helped me steer my training into the right direction and has been a great contribution to my 3 meets this year.
Second, I’d love to hear how everyone’s 2015 was for their lifting. Numbers hit, lessons learned, obstacles overcome, etc.
I started 2015 with little powerlifting knowledge and completed 3 meets.
By the numbers:
Deadlift: A very shitty 405-a solid 485/a wonky 500
My biggest accomplishment would have to be my complete deadlift overhaul. At the beginning of 2015 my deadlift was complete shit and now I finally managed to train it the way that works best for me.
Biggest thing I learned that I will take into 2016 with me is that patience and belief in your long term goals is probably the most important aspect of my training. We all know this, but I have witnessed it firsthand many times throughout the year.
Biggest fuck up is my shoulder injury that I am recovering from right now and still not having my leg checked out for what appears to be a calcium deposit that I promised myself I would do back in January.
So that’s it people. Thank you all again. Would love to hear how everyone’s 2015 went. Happy New Year and may it bring us all more plates on the bar!
