I am 67 and have competing in power lifting for just over 2 years. I did not start lifting seriously until I was 60. I got up to benching 315 then hurt my shoulder. After 2 1/2 years of various therapies, I had surgery this past August: NOT rotator cuff, just cleaning up arthritis. The shoulder is back and doing well. I herniated a disc last April but no pain since pain meds and was prevented from deadlifting for 6 months. Just did a competition last week and pulled 260 lbs (at 181 weight class). My bench sucked last week in part from poor form. I have another competition at the end of May and want to get back up and need some training advice. I plan to compete at least in bench and deadlift. My goal is to get as close to benching 300 as possible (did 223 in practice a couple of weeks ago, but form at competition did not permit me to do that) and 400 for deadlift. A long road back on rehab, of course, but I have just over 12 weeks and can put a good training program together. Would appreciate any and all advice on workout strategies and plans for the next 12 weeks. I usually lift 4 to 6 days per week and do cardio (elliptical) on those days also.
Thanks one and all.

Respect and Welcome to the jungle. Log your routine as you have very less time left to your next competition. Good Luck.
