Long time lurker, first post, bla bla bla...
38 years old, lifting since high school, rugby, MMA, injuries, started powerlifting more seriously, began training with a competitive bencher 2 years ago.
Wasn't planning on competing, but ya know how that goes....
Did my first meet last Saturday, Son Light Power federation. Bench only. Had a game plan, stuck with it, came in at 218 lbs, hit my numbers just as planned -
450 - new SLP Michigan state record for submaster men/220.
SLP is quite relaxed, held at a local gym. Wore a double ply Rage X. Fun day. The adrenaline high... aaahhhh.
Good forum here, appreciate the knowledge.
