Here are a couple photos of my old training partner whom has since given up bodybuilding and taken on powerlifting. He hopes to make it big in powerlifting one of these days. He's 23 years old, 5'8, and competing in the 242s. Right now his total is around 2000.

In the first picture he smokes 740.

In the second picture he misses the lockout on 800 by a few inches.

I remember reading your journal when you were training with him he was strong then. Looks like a huge strong guy. Has he won many comps then or is he just getting started?

He's just getting started, but he's won the ones he done so far. He's been working on getting use to geared lifts.

I remember you saying how his head would be like a melon from bloat all the time, lol.

He's a monster!

And why did he switch to powerlifting?

They are just wrist wraps, I don't think he's ever owned a pair of straps. The pictures aren't that great of quality unfortunately.

Here's another I forgot I had.

799.5 lb squat.

That .5 lbs from 800 would piss me off haha. Guys a BEAST, legs are huge. Im sure he'll make it far in powerlifting. He still juicing?

And why did he switch to powerlifting?

Multiple reasons. A lot of it had to do with the risks and dangers of getting super dry for contests. Other reasons were the politics of it all.

What a powerhouse! Very strong for his age especially. Delts and legs look ridiculous!

Why do you no longer train together?

I'm guessing because, maybe among other things, one is a power lifter and the other is a body builder.

point? they don't have to do the same split, but they could still go together and give spots/tips on stuff.

Hes only 23? holy****, looks taller than 5,8, and thick as concrete.

A guy like that, whos 23, should go for StrongMan and make a profile for himself.

Wow, I didn't even read his stats. He looks like he's over 6' tall and in his 30s.

Maybe one of them walked in on the other during an "alone time" moment. I don't know, jeez. Who do you think I am, the answer guy?

Legs are definitely a strong point of his. I'm sure they're over 30 inches there. They are also filled with veins and pretty shredded but you can't see that with all the chalk and poor picture quality.

We have different schedules these days, I'm usually done and gone before he gets to the gym.

I love how in the second picture there's a young kid being held by his mom. The kid looks so scared haha. I guess that's the type of presence a beast like this has; kids run and hide behind there mothers.

He probably needs a can of Crisco and 4 guys to help him into his suit. I just can't believe the guy is 23!
