Strong lifts for 180lbs.

So what made you switch from powerlifting to bodybuilding, and what were the biggest things you changed in your training?

Wow, very impressive at 180 for sure. How do your lifts compare now that you train for size?

For one powerlifting takes a toll on your joints. Also I just enjoy the challenge more with bodybuilding as there a lot more things I can do as far as training. Its just a much bigger passion for me.

I don't train below 5 reps ever so I really don't know. I mean even though I weigh 210 lbs now I couldn't do those single rep maxes for sure, but my strength density is much better and Iinever use a belt anymore.

I've done 425lbs for 8 reps on deadlift, 250lbs for 25 on Squat and I hardly ever bench with a bar.
