Shawn's Gonna Get on Dat Platform!!
« on: August 16, 2016, 03:29:01 PM »
Hey guys, want to start a journal here leading up to my first meet in Syracuse in April. I have a journal at BB.com but like the atmosphere and have a feeling I will be meeting a few of you in April. John is e-coaching me along and am almost ready to begin my training.
A bit about me:
I have been training pretty serious for a few years now but just recently have took a turn towards powerlifting. I train in my home gym in the basement and have about everything I need. I am a 41 year old father of 4 young boys, love lifting, fishing and long walks in the moonlight  ::) I ran my own programming up until spring when I did 2 cycles of Candito  6 week strength program then did a mock meet with a prep.  I spent a good chuck of the summer dieting and freewheeling with training.  I will compete in either 181 or 198 but will probably just do 198 being my first meet and try to get an ok total.

Mock meet numbers (at 189lbs)
Squat: 380lbs with sleeves
Bench: 290lbs T&G
Deadlift: 515lbs (495x3)

I have a pansy bench and squat which I am going to pound at hard to bring up for April.  My immediate plan is to run Candito again for a few cycles and maybe another mock meet and reassess. I will compete in wraps, although I have never tried them.  They should be in this week and will take them for a spin.
So, on vacation for a few weeks but thinking I may start Candito this Sunday if I can get it rolling.  I am sitting about 180lbs right now. 

Today I just did some bench rep work, a few sets with the slingshot and some calves.  I will start logging my workouts once I start my program.  Hope to see some you strong folks pop in:)

Fuck off with the negative of having a pansy lift in anything Shawn.

You are a strong kunt. End of story.

Oh and while I'm at it.

Well there he is! Yes quite a few from here will be in Syracuse in April. Lucky for you if/when you get here to train in a month or two you'll have a leg up on those who haven't competed at Hercules. The gym I train in his home to the April meet :)

Warning about the journals here. You wont get smoke blown up your ass like over at BB.com. Folks here like to lift heavy and hit PRs. You'll fit right in  ;D

Use the insert hyperlink button and paste your youtube vid address in between the brackets. Have to take the 's' off the https though so it will look like 'http' without the 's'.
