Hi,

I am losing my training partner, he is off to Japan for 12 months.
I train heavy bench on Sunday in the city (could train Saturday).
My best Bench is 500/227.5kg @ 210 in gear off a 1 board.
I have not been in any comps yet.
I have 2 sets of mini bands, one set of monsters, one set of lights and one of averages plus 2 sets of chain and boards 0.5-5.

If anyone is interested in training with me once a week please let me know, thanks!

There are few Sydney lifters there. Most are IPF I don't think there are any CAPO on the board.

I'd love to come down and train with you once in a while, but the commute from Illinois might be slightly cost prohibitive.

Ha ha, yep I would love to train in the U.S for a while but don't have the funds just yet.

Thank you, I will.
Sticking with double ply though as I like it better.
Hopefully there are some CAPO lifters but I don't know of any.

Have a look at the CAPO site then. I am sure they have the number of the NSW co-ordinator on it. I am sure that he can point you in the direction of other CAPO lifters in Sydney.

The CAPO site has about 4 members on the forum at the moment, its a little bit of a joke! Where is Shawn Bostock training?

He trains in Melbourne, they seem to have most of the lifters as well as the best gym.
Sydney is very lacking but I hope to change that in the future.

Hey Nick I suggest checking out Northy Sydney PCYC Heavy Metal Powerlifting Club, they are IPF lifters there but I can't imagine that would say no to another big strong boy training in?

Hi

Just updating, I have found someone to train with on heavy bench day.
Only weighs around 140 so not sure how the lift-offs will be but better than training alone for now.
I will keep hunting for other lifters and try to get a good little team going if I can.

When I saw that I thought you ment he 'only' weighed 140kg, HAH!

Hopefully you get a crew going Nick, getting the first person into it is the hardest part.

Lol yeah I did mean lbs like they talk in the U.S, he is stronger than average but still not by powerlifting standards.

Yeah thanks mate I do hope to get a good crew going but I won't put up with people who don't turn up to train my partner now is always on time so I have been lucky I guess.
Hope it works out so we can really get Australia into this great sport!
