    We had a similar discussion at the gym and the trainer there explained to us really heavy weights how much weight we "lift" every single day, every hour, every minute just walking around a bit. I started with 170 kg (375 pounds) body weight so I "lifted" at least 70 - 80 kg every single step. And I can feel it in my knees all right!

    There isn't many of us here that are active on forums.

    I started two years ago and I'm currently ranked #1 in USA for one age/weight class in USAPL. Pretty weird.

    I lift! Not sure if its considered "powerlifting"...I squat, bench, OHP, deadlift, row, pullups, and split squats. I also do a few accessories, not much. Everything is on my own (gym to myself, write my own programming, etc.)

    You're just training smart, not a powerlifter though.

    Until at the very least you are signed up for a meet, you wouldn't be considered a powerlifter by definition.

    Prepping & competing in front of judges/audience is a different animal.

    Yeah, power lifted for 12 years, quit to raise kids got back into at 46. Got nothing left but a strong upper body. Working my way back to a 500 lb raw bench after shoulder surgery 5 years ago. I'm at 435 lb.now with a 395 lb incline. I'm 52 6'3 265 lb BW. Miss competing though, maybe one more bench competition. Add me, we can swap ideas on training. I'm not scientific, I'm more old school stuff.

    Glad I came across this post! I just started, looking to cut weight though and maybe compete sometime next year!

    I just noticed my name was mentioned here about a week ago lol. I just finished deloading today and I'm getting ready for my 10th powerlifting meet Saturday! I'm coming off a shoulder injury and got a 5 lb. PB in squats (255 lbs), a 10lb. gym PR in deadlifting (310) and my bench form is much better this 16 week training block. I'm also working with a new coach and new programming so I'm excited to see the results! Feel free to add me

    Good luck Saturday, @PowerliftingMom!!!

    My next meet is June 8.

    Thank you! I had a great meet!!

    Oh, yeah?!? Any PRs, @PowerliftingMom?
