Default Powerlifting profiles

Muscle & Strength has added a section dedicated to natural powerlifter profiles.

Powerlifter Profiles With Videos & Pictures | Muscle & Strength

I need to add in approx. 12 questions beyond just basic stats that would be appropriate to ask powerlifters.

Which questions would you like to see standard in these profiles?

Who do they train with? Good training partners are a valuable commodity.
Know-how is as important as strength when it comes to moving heavy weights.
When I see a good lifter I'm always curious about the whole crew.

Do they ever incorporate bodybuilding style sets and reps within their sessions?

YouTube channel !!
I think there's a lot to be learned from watching the top notch lifters lift. So if they have YouTube channels where they have workout videos, that would be a good resource to have.
