    I've decided to move my log over here, not only because I plan on continuing to compete, but also because the programming I'm using has moved beyond "intermediate" stage and this forum is more appropriate for it.

    Old log is at http://startingstrength.com/resource...=35485&page=63

    Updated stats:

    Male, 50 years old, 6'2", 220 lbs.

    Current 1RM's:

    BP - 300 with pause
    SQ - 440 wrapped, 420 raw
    PR - 160
    DL - 450

    Powerlifting goals for this year:

    BP - 310
    SQ - 460
    DL - 475

    This would total 1,245 and, using Malone formula, would equal 1,562.

    Currently planning a meet in April that I will simply train through with only a few days taper. I'm now looking at a meet in July as my next big peak because I think it will take that long to make good gains over my current numbers.

    Welcome over here Walter. Those are some solid goals for this year. I think you will meet and exceed them. Are you doing the meet at Brute in April?

    So jazzed you're on here Walter!
    Those goals look a little conservative.

    Karl, I've been working with Jordan since last March and we've been doing a block periodization approach. I'm doing a short GPP block right now but then moving back into accumulation. We'll program for two major peaks this year - June/July and December.

    Are you doing the meet at Brute in April?
    Gillian, no, I'm doing a local meet here in Kentucky that is convenient. In July, I'm going to try a Southern Powerlifting Federation Meet down in Alabama. There are quite a few good meets up in the Columbus area throughout the year but the schedules just aren't matching up for me. Probably do an RPS meet up there in December.

    Those goals look a little conservative.
    Niki, I appreciate the confidence but remember that I am old! Actually, you may be right. I'm being a little conservative with the BP because I added a lot of weight to that lift last year and I'm not particularly well built for that lift. The SQ could possible go up to 470 and a 500 lb. DL is not out of the question just not sure if that will happen this year.

    Monday, 3 February 2014

    SQ - 45x5, 135x5, 225x2
    DL - 145x2x3, 225x2, 315x2, 365x1, 405x4, 385x4
    BP w/2 boards - 45x5, 135x5, 185x6, 185x6, 185x6, 185x6, 175x6
    BP w/3 ct pause - 175x6, 170x6, 165x6
    DB Lateral Raise - 12.5x3x10

    Probably started 20 lbs. too light in picking the BP weight for my initial so that's the reason for so many sets before I got close to RPE target. DL's were a lot of volume after SQ's yesterday so only took one back off set to hit my fatigue stop.

    I live in the heart of bourbon country. You name it and I can probably bring it!
