FYI: I've read it all from Wendler to Rippetoe and while those resources were a tremendous help and reference on a technical level I figured varied experiences from other lifters I interact with will be more useful in the long run

welcome along Drew

Welcome to the forum Drew. Make yourself at home and post up some questions in the powerlifting forum if we can help in any way.

I just wanted to say hi and let everyone know that I am available if you need any advice on squatting or powerlifting in general. I have been at it a long time and can pretty much answer any questions on powerlifting training or competition.

Great to see you on the forum. I posted a link to one of your meet write-ups recently and have been following you on YouTube. Inspiring stuff. Hope to see you around.
