Let me give you a quick background. I had a very productive spring training cycle and hit some good numbers. I had some health and personal problems soon after. I also worked about 50-60 hrs per week with my (then) landscape business which really hampered my training and caused me to drop down to 192lbs. Ive gotten back on the horse as of Sept and am putting the weight back on. Im only 5ft 8 on a good day so usually I dont go above 230 or so. I train completely Raw and use a loose version of Wendlers 5/3/1 for my main lift percentages. Im considering A Westside program starting in January, but it will depend on the next few months and the progress I make.
36 years old. Been training seriously for about 21 years. Played football (LB)til my senior year when I tore my MCL. Had a full Scholarship to Towson state that did not happen. Got into Bodybuilding and competed from 19-25 years old. Never took an overrall first place but 2nd on two occasions.Started Powerlifting at 31-32 and never looked back. No major injuries, just an Umbilical Hernia that doesnt bother me yet. Some low back issues that I manage also.

230 @ 5'8'' is BIG. Is that what you are aiming for again?
This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy - George Bernard Shaw
