On January 5th, 2013, I could only squat 175 lbs, bench press 200 lbs and deadlift 280 lbs (655 total).
Today I competed in my first powerlifting meet, the Ironworks Open.
Squat: 440 lbs
Bench Press: 275 lbs
Deadlift: 550 lbs
I added 600 pounds to my total. Not too shabby for 7 months of training if I do say so myself 🙂
