Hi All,

My names Neil, I'm 30 years old and have now competed in my first 2 powerlifting competitions this year.

My background is gymnasctics which I competed in competively up to the age of 16 and since then I have continued to be involved as a coach and judge.

I took up powerlifting training at the beginning of 2014 after a long lay off from training. There was no reason for this I just got bored with training and needed something to keep me focused.

My results so far are as follows:


Cheshire & Lancashire Championships 2014

B/W - 108.6
Squat - 150
Bench - 127.5
Deadlift - 180

Total - 447.5

All England Championships 2014
B/W - 112.5
Squat - 185
Bench - 140
Deadlift - 200

Total - 525

My next competition will now be the NW Championships on the 30th November and I aiming to get as close to a 600kg total as possible.

Nice lifting yesterday and a good improvement from your first competition.
525 to 600 would be a large jump though in three months.

Been a bit quiet on here recently. Training for the NW Championships is in full swing with 6.5 weeks left to go.

I've managed to squat 190kg last night and hoping to get up to my gym PB of 200kg very soon.

I've also benched 147.5kg at the weekend so everything is slowly fitting into place.

I'll find out on Wednesday where my deadlift is up to and then plan out from there the rest of my training.

All the training is now finished... Not quite up to my goals set but here's what I'm hoping to lift at the weekend for my opening 2 lifts:

Squat
Lift 1 - 200
Lift 2 - 210

Bench
Lift 1 - 150
Lift 2 - 160

Deadlift
Lift 1 - 190
Lift 2 - 200

These are all lifts I have hit the gym since the All England Championships so I'm confident I will get these.

The 3rd lifts will all be PB attempts but I'm hoping to finish with a total around 580.

Since my last post I've not trained much and enjoyed a bit of a rest... need to break the cycle quickly though before it gets to January and I have become a couch potato!
