Background:

I'm a 25 year old male trying to get back into powerlifting.

Growing up, I've always been quite sporty, abeit skinny. 4 years ago I took up powerlifting and absolutely loved it but wasn't very good- took me a bit over 2 years to hit a 550 squat, 300 something bench and a 528 deadlift at around 220 (equipped, in an ipf affliate).

Life, however, does take its toll on you- a move to a different country, working in an extremely stressful job and various personal issues made me stop training for about a year and half.

So here's my journal (hopefully) documenting me training to regain and hopefully supercede my previous strength levels.

At the moment, training will be really straight forward- 3-4 full body sessions a week, depending on my hectic schedule, all with moderate weights at a medium rep range. Nothing fancy, just 1-2 main lifts followed by some assistance work.

Will update after my first session later!

Nothing special today. Just trying to get back to the swing of things. Really look forward to deadlifting tommorow.
