Mine, I started working out Nov…
April ‘09, when I was 32.
I never worked out before – I hated sports at school, and never understood why anyone would do sport for fun. Hence I started from a place of no fitness or strength at all.
I did my first competition on 31st October 2010: South East Deadlift at Woking power. I did a 105kg (231lbs) deadlift. My first 3-lift competition was the following April.
I think at my first lesson, I squatted the bar (20kg/45lbs), benched the bar (ibid.) and deadlifted 40kg. I was stoked!!
My current competition bests are 85kg (187lbs) squat, 47.5kg (105lbs) bench (with a stop – I can probably do more without a stop) and 115kg (253.5lbs) deadlift. I have deadlifted 120kg (264.5lbs) in the gym though, but I only count competition pbs!
