The Great Powerlifting Experiment

For those of you who follow me on Twitter, you know I recently competed in my first powerlifting competition. You also know that I suffer from a recently diagnosed chronic illness that has been doing a number on my body. But me being me, of course I decided to give my chronic illness the bird and competed anyway.
My goals were simple: spend 2 months training under a powerlifting style of lifting, gain strength, complete all three lifts, and attain a combined lift of 500lbs.
