For many (or actually the majority of the lifters out there) do this as a hobby and deal with life's struggles first....powerlifting is sometimes our escape.....
"I’ve been at it (powerlifting and competing) a long time, just turned 48 in September, riding the roller coaster of work, training, nagging injuries and carbohydrates! Haven’t competed in a few years but the bug and the love never go away. Here’s my 501 lbs (227.5 kilos) at yesterday’s WABDL meet in Portland Maine put on my Al Stork. Great meets, location, logistics and awards!"
"Did a bench press challenge for Relentless Minnesota 2014 going next month March 28th-29th. Training for this meet doing Bench only raw in first flight and 3 flight slapping on a single ply shirt and seeing where the day goes"
After last years unsuccessful attempt, Eric Talmant returns to powerlifting with an incredible performance to win the 67.5KG/148LB class in the knee-wrapped division at RUM 7. Eric is also the meet organizer for Raw Unity and was integral to the success of the meet -- The lifts he posted were impressive to say the least. At first glance there's no way you would think he could squat 556!!! But as he stepped on the platform and looked up to the heaven's and prayed, he made each and every attempt!
James Hickey became the first man in WDFPF history to pull 340 kgs (749lbs) raw at the weekend. James was competing in the Irish nationals in Dublin on February 9th.

From Bill- Here is the link for the UPA Powerlifting & Bench Press National Championship - Sponsored by Tow Truck Country live stream. I will start the camera at 9am on both days of lifting. I will do my best to keep it going. At the last meet it went down few times each day. It is what it is. It's free. ( UPA Powerlifting & Bench Press National Championships- Live )
All nine attempts from Raw Unity 7.. lifted on Day 2 against two good lifters that wore knee wraps and still managed to come in 2nd Place on formula. Joe not only took second on formula to Richard Hawthorne but was also drug tested by his own request!
