Okay, first a little about me...

I come from an endurance sports background, mainly triathlon/cycling/running. Some of my achievements are:

** Numerous 5, 10 and 15km road races
** 30+ half marathons (PB 1:36 and a heart attack midway through the race)
** 10 full marathons (PB 3:54)
** 2 offroad ultramarathons

Image

Image

I competed in my first powerlifting meet back in 2004, I won the U100kg class. I have competed a few times since then, also winning all of them apart from one shocker where I bombed out on the squats :oops:

This year I plan to carry on much the same, just winning what I can! I'll write up my training from about a month ago so you get the idea of what I do; currently I am training towards a push pull meet which is 5weeks away and then the Canterbury Champs in mid-April.

This year I also hope to break the New Zealand raw deadlift record for my weight class, which stands at 451lb. Thanks for following along :)

'Small plate' deadlifts (conventional style), working up to 90% of my max which is around 400lb.

Using 15kg plates instead of the regular 20's to increase the ROM.

My strength right now is as I start my training; working towards both the NZ Nationals and to try and break the NZ raw deadlift record for my weight class (205kg). Um, that's the record btw, not my weight class.

Nothing like a little pressure to make you perform aye!
