Changes in Direction

It's been a year since I left the fitness industry in exchange for more work/life balance. As a result I haven't documented anything as I had no direction for my blog.

I've decided to continue it as a training and competition log for my ongoing powerlifting hobby. Despite not being employed in the fitness industry any longer, I am still actively training for and competing powerlifting competitions.

I've been fortunate enough to compete in a National level event, the 2010 CPU Nationals as a Masters 1 class lifter. I was very fortunate to actually earn a 3rd place medal in the 110kg class--the icing on the cake for a great trip to a city I've never visited with my girlfriend Vivian. Since then, I've cut down for an event in the 100kg class and in my past two competitions, lifted raw in the new 120kg class and most recently in the new 105kg class. My ultimate goals are to continue to lose bodyfat and compete in the 93kg class by January 2012.

In the near term, I'm now training for a meet in September with the 100% Raw federation. My goal is to improve my squat--stuck at 205kgs for the past two competitions and to continue to build my deadlift back to the levels I achieved in 1992 (292.5kg at 100kg bodyweight).
