My Journey To A 500 LB Raw Squat
I'm Perry a 56 year old man that got into powerlifting a little over two years ago, for rehab from a auto accident.
My bench press, and deadlift really are the craps from injuries to shoulder and neck but I still work on improving them.
The squat is my best lift by far.
I have competed in two meets this year, squat only, one in Feb, and the other in April, my best competition raw squat is 435 LBS, next planed meet is in Nov and I have a goal of 500 LBS RAW.
Too make it even worse I'm one of the lucky ones that get to train alone at home.

Had some tightness in left knee took a few sets too work it out, had a hard time getting to depth up to the fourth set.
Over all it was a good night.
I'm trying to use more chains and bands too increase my bar speed on the top half.
Thanks every body for the warm welcome, and all the encouragement.
