JRider23
05-04-2010, 08:30 PM
congrats man, you planning on playing any sports there?

possibly soccer but their team is ranked around 18 in the country for D3, so it would be really hard to make it. I am also considering walking on for basketball and have already spoken with the coach, but he said there are already 7 other kids walking on for 1, maybe 2 spots and he has seen film of most of the players whereas i haven't played competitive basketball since 6th grade (in an 8th grade league). I do play with my friends on the team who made the state finals and compete, but I think i'll do intermurals and focus on studying for the first time in my life lol.

how about you? WPI is in Mass right?

Keaffer14
05-05-2010, 04:58 AM
yea, WPI is in mass, where i live already. i am considering wrestling there, or playing rugby, i may just focus on school and powerlifting however, depends on how bad the work load is haha

06-20-2010, 09:49 AM
thank you a lot guys..checked the rankings in the new powerlifting usa magazine and the total would rank me 17th out of all 181 lbs. teenagers. feeling pretty sore today, tweeked my shoulder a little when i threw the first bench over my face, so ill be doing a lot of icing and rotator cuff work on that and the rest of my body this week, plus foam rolling. ill be taking a little time off from meets, setting my sights primarily on the usapl american open in december, with maybe a bench only meet or something in like october or november. for now ill be doing lots of raw work, trying to get my raw strength up as i feel thats my main weakness, and i feel this will move my total up the most. no gear for a few months, my body and joints could use the rest.

Ok, so my next meet is November 7th and will be the USPF New England Regionals. For this upcoming cycle, I will be having Brian Carroll setting up all of my training for me, when to be in gear, when to not be, when to deload..everything. Just wanted to say that so far he has already been a great help, and it seems that he has a great plan set up for me to have a good meet.
