My Father-in-Law wants me to enter a Powerlifting competition because he is thrilled with my progress in the Deadlift. He is a powerlifter himself and recently competed at age 54.

I am estimating my Deadlift max to be about 430 right now. So I figured I would test my Flat Bench max in preparation for the competition. I have been doing DB Inclines, so I couldn't really estimate the Flat Barbell Bench without actually trying it. I did it with a paused rep because that is how I would have to do it in competition.

The competition is just bench and deadlift. I haven't decided whether or not I will do it yet. We will see how the upcoming weeks progress.
you should do it man...get some official lifts....430 ain't no joke
