Currently just doing some work experiece but starting my Maths PGCE in September.

I got bored of BB.com plus this site is useful in that I can see issues students are having with Mathematics and therefore help my own.

I've not looked at any blogs on here yet but I suppose everyone will have varying goals. Mine being getting stronger in the Squat, bench and deadlift. Suppose I can call myself a powerlifter having competed a few times.

Following the Juggernaut Method at the moment. Currently on my 3rd week so hitting amraps. Next week being a deload which has worked out well since I'm graduating on Tuesday.

It's amrap deadlifts today at 197.5kg so will post later, along with my numbers for squats and bench from this week.

Nice meeting everyone.

Sooo just got back from deadlifts, had 197.5kg for AMRAP, still getting used to hitting past 5 reps each set haha so to hit 11 I was pretty happy, especially in this heat.

Deload week next week then onto 8 rep phase.


So I can compare current PBs to what I get in 13 weeks time here they are.... (KG)

SQUAT - 225 (poverty but going up the fastest)
BENCH - 170
DEADLIFT - 290. @89KG Bodyweight

My weight class is un90.

Training at Strength Asylum in Stoke.... Same gym as Eddie hall. Feels amazing deadlifting in the same spot as he used when training for his 500kg deadlift. Even though I am still chasing just 300kg (10kg off).

I was at the gym one day squatting and a guy who was into powerlifting said to me after my set that I had a good depth on my squat. Now I'm not sure if he was flirting but he asked if I wanted to train with him and I did. I got strong quick, had a good base from bodybuilding so adding strength was easy. Entered my first competition after about 4 months, it was a deadlift only one. I won and got the bug for it then. Did another comp few months later and won again, this time squat Bench and deadlft. Had a rough time soon after that with a *****y breakup but kept on with powerlifting, probably the only thing that gave me another focus and stopped me from being a compete mess haha. Then the last competition I did (Jan208) I got jnr British deadlift and total records which just made me want to train harder. Thats my brief history of powerlifting, about a year and half.

In terms of training, I stopped training to failure. Felt better and could train more. Best part is you can track your progress so much easier than just from looking at your body/weight. If you hit 60kg on the bench for 2 reps then a month later you get it for 4 you know you've gotten stronger. There's no 'oh has my belly shrunk or have my arms got bigger'. If I suddenly couldn't powerlift for some reason though I'd have f**k all.

That's some real dedication, keep up the good work and it's good to see a.powetlifter for a change as most people just want to "get big".

I'm 5,10 and 91kg so not small but yeah I compete in the un90 class so I can't really put on much more size. Could go to 95kg and cut water before comp but that's effort haha. I will see if I can get some physique photos up sometime soon.

You should do! People take it up when they're 50odd so it's something anyone can do.

I have the attitude that the only point in entering is winning, so I was pretty nervous the first time I competed because I didn't want it to be a waste of time. The comp days are great fun, getting to see everyone lift and cheering each other on.

Will get some better picures, back legs front on etc when I'm with someone... But body fat %, I'm guessing 16/17% 🤔

Normally hairy but shaved to see if I was fat or not.
