Any powerlifters?

Options
Looking for people to add on here that have similar goals/interests as mine. I am pretty new to the sport. Just hired my first coach a few months ago. Been training in the lifts for about 6 months. I am hoping to do my first competition next year. Currently cutting down to the 240 weight class. Currently 270.

    I train in more of a "powerbuilding" hybrid style but may consider dabbling in competing. There are plenty of us lifting hanging around.

    Powerbuilding. I like that. That kind of describes my 35 years with iron. Never competed in either though, LOL.

    I too just started powerlifting in October. I'm still cutting a large amount of weight while learning the lifts. I think my first comp will be next year. Everyone add me! I need more PL friends!

    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
