Goals: Get stronger on the basic movements. I'll be doing my first powerlifting meet in September, so my focus is on the squat, bench, and deadlift, with some assistance lifts and conditioning thrown in. I'm not brutally strong yet, but I've made some solid progress since making strength training my priority last year, and I'm pleased with the way things are going.
Please feel free to post any questions or comments you have.
What will you be shooting for at the meet?
