About 3 months ago an old droog of mine phoned and said he wanted to find a weightlifting event to enter.
Droog's name is "Buck", age 57, 5'10", 178, age group 50 - 59, 100 and 200 meter Michigan sprint champ. Great athlete. Went to HS together, he was a senior when I was a frosh and same/same @ Mich. State.
I dusted off the olympic set and found a meet near Columbus, Ohio scheduled for tommorow.
The meet is drug tested and offers powerlifting (bench, deadlift & squat) and "power-sports" (strict curl, deadlift & bench with no wraps or any gear that supports or assists).
Anyway, we are competing in the power-sports the strict curl and the bench. The strict curl utilizes an "EZ Curl Bar".
We are leaving at 4 a.m. tomorrow, lifting then slamming brews afterwards.
I have not competed in any weightlifting stuff in about 20 years so I'm feeling pretty pumped.
I'm checking in at about 235 now and plan on dropping about 10 or 15 after the meet. I feel like a freakin' bull at that weight but at my age it is not cool for the ole ticker. Besides my old lady told me that when I can see my dick again she would be happy to take a look at it also! LOL!
