My Journey back to the platform
 
I was PM'd over at bodybuilding.com by a member or mod of this forum. he said he'd like to see me post my log on here. so, here we go.

Haven't powerlifted let alone competed in over 2 years. Injured my hamstring severely in 2009 and my back got worse from my scoliosis and being lazy about prehab/rehab work. But, now 2 years later I think i'm ready to return and get back to my passion which is powerlifting.

Back then i was in the 220's in the USAPL. my big 3 were like so - Bench: 230lbs Deadlift: 420lbs (440 in gym) Squat: 355 (below parallel/400lbs in gym) all raw

Since a couple years have passed i've dropped 50lbs and plan to lose about 20lbs more. I'll be relying on my training and my muscle memory to get strong again as i pursue a cut to 150lbs. Then, i'll bulk my way up to the 170's and really be focusing on strength with my maximum potential. This will take a whole year and I wont be ready to compete until then. I am really looking foward to this.

i'm going with a 5x5 routine. 3 days training weekly and plan to load more weight on the bar each workout.

I have a bummed shoulder right now so after it heals up I will start my training and posting my sessions in here.

Congrats on all your earned personal successes.

You will have many more.

You will do well with this journal.

Rock on! And stay tough!

Great goals and congratulations on the weight loss. Working on that myself right now.
