Default New to the Forum, Just Saying Hello

Hello Everyone,

My name is Joe Norman, known as Joe "Ironman" Norman in most powerlifting circles.

I have been a competitive powerlifter for over 14 years and made a name for myself in the sport with my squats. You can go to my blog to read up on me if you like, monstersquat.com/about.

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.

Thanks for buying the book. I always enjoy meeting people that bought it. It feels good to know that it helps others lifters.

If you ever have any questions about it or powerlifting in general just send me a message. I'm pretty good at getting back at people.

Will do, thanks. Feel free to start a thread telling folks about the book, who you are, etc.

We are an open forum and linking to it isn't an issue.

Hey peeps, name's Drew, I started powerlifting about a year ago and was browsing through these forums for as long as that. I've more or less reached "the wall" with my training as do all novices like me in that I'm finding it incredibly difficult to increase my 1 rep max. So hopefully here I can get advice from more experienced lifters on how to continue progressing and also get an idea of everyone's diet regiment

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
