I did not exactly follow the plan, but the contest went well. I warmed up with 135x10 135x12 225x8 315x2 405x2. My opening lift was 235 KG 518 pounds, clean, and easy. Lift 2 was 250KG 551 pounds and it was clean 3 white lights, a personal record for a contest (previous best was 545 in the super heavy class, and a world record) and a state record, and in the 308 class. So one weight class down from my previous best lift. 3rd lift was 257.5KG or 567 pounds, and I didn't get it, but it was close, so no national record today, but close, and the 551 is only 12 pounds less than the current 308 class world record.

So as some of you know, I moved from Ca. to Id. and ironically this is my two year mark since I have trained. I started back 4 weeks ago, and it is ugly. I am weak, and at the end of week 2 I fried my low back doing dead lifts thinking I was super man. So I took week 3 off. This will be interesting to say the least to see how fast, or if the strength comes back. One thing is that I train with absolutely no pain, everything is healed up so maybe I will be better than ever. I have been just cruising working my way back into it. Last Thursdays bench was 135x15 135x15 225x10 275x8 295x3+1 and 245x10. A couple of high school kids came up to me and asked what my max was. I just laughed, and said we will see in about 6-8 months. Made me feel good though.

I should have been updating this more often, but some how my old training partner from Ca. Talked the World powerlifting congress into letting me compete with out qualifying in the world championships which happened this past week in of all places Idaho Falls Idaho about 8 hours from me by car. They always put on a big nationals contest every year, but were selected for the worlds this year, so it was the big yearly international contest. Anyway I benched on wednesday, and I opened at 220 KG (485 lbs) which is 15 KG over the 308 pound weight class masters 2 world record (keep in mind I am 51 now) and I got it OK with 3 white lights, Lift 2 was 230KG (507 lbs) and I got that with 3 white lights, Lift 3 was 235KG (518 lbs) and that want up also with 3 white lights. Normally 3 lifts is all you get, unless you are within 20KG of the world record, and you were successful with lift 3 which I was. So They will give you a fourth attempt which I took, and did 240KG (530 lbs) 3 white lights, and world record.
I also entered in the open 308 weight class, so I was against all lifters regardless of age, and I won the open class also.
So the cliffs are
Beat the 50-54 mens 308 pound class drug tested world record.
Had 4 lifts in a row over the world record, 3 of them over 500 pounds.
Won the world championships in the open men 308 pound drug tested division after about 6 months of training again.
A pretty good day, and a lot of surprised young bench pressers that went back to their country without the gold medal. That one is still in the USA

That is impressive. I used to pick up SBC and load them into a pick-up bed, but I wasn't pressing them over my head (I was picking them up to take to the machine shop for a NAPA distributor). That is truly awesome. Congratulations on the world title and gold medals.

What's with the drug vs no drug class? Are we talking human growth steroids or some other drug?

I haven't lifted weights in over fifty years, and never competed. But being as big as a gorilla had it's benefits when I worked as cop (6'-6" tall 280 pounds with a 27" waist and 62 inch chest and 23 inch neck back when I was in my twenties and still in shape). Hard to find clothes that fit me then, and now with a 56 inch gut.

There are way more than what you see on ESPN...

Big B is a big person at 308 and will hold his own without the BS.

Great job!
