11/20- Single Ply Squats w/video and our 10 year anniversary, 2 Weeks out from the APF Gulf Coast Winter Bash

Although we've been together for 18, Trinity and I had our 10 year wedding anniversary on Friday.  I have to admit I would be lost without her.   She's also seen enough behind the scenes in the powerlifting world that she could write her own tell all book.

I have been competitively powerlifting for over 20 years. Within that time I have competed raw, single ply and multi ply. I hold the highest all time total of 1930 at 148, the third highest total of 2045 at 165 and have broken over 35 world records, over 25 of which I still hold. Through the years in this sport I have learned a great deal from various training methods, met and formed long lasting friends, as well as learned the importance of balancing life, work, and training.

Elitefts accepted me as a team member over ten years ago and I am currently the longest standing still competing powerlifter on the site. I appreciate Dave Tate and Elitefts for giving me the opportunity to learn from and teach others through the Q&A and my training log.

In 2005 I opened Orlando Barbell – a 24 hour powerlifting friendly gym. As well as running Orlando Barbell I designed and sell the Home GHR , the The OBB Power Handles and the Doorway Home Gym, wrote the 12 Weeks to a Bigger Bench EBook, and produced the 12Weeks to a Bigger Bench DVD.

My latest contribution was writing the M2 Method EBook, designed to be the quintessential Raw Powerlifting training manual for beginners to advanced lifters looking to get stronger and prevent injury while incorporating the powerlifts.

This is the most weight I’ve had on my back in over a year, so I was happy with how it went. Next week is our deload which works out perfectly since it’s the week of Thanksgiving. The following week is the week of the meet so we’ll take off completely. Normally I feel a little beat up by this point and am looking forward to the deload, but I actually feel great. Either way it will be nice to have a little break.
