I grew up in Bay Shore, New York and lived in Long Island, NY until 1999 when my wife and I decided to make a lifestyle change and move to Las Vegas, Nevada where we currently reside. I began weight training at the age of 18 to improve my physical appearance and now compete as a competitive powerlifter in the USPF and APF organizations.
I began powerlifting in 2000 and have made steady progress each year to point where I am now competitive in my weight class (198 & 220 lbs). I firmly believe that powerlifting training is superior to bodybuilding as a way to improve both one's strength and physical appearance provided that one adheres to a sound healthy eating plan, and does not over eat. In addition, smart use of nutritional supplements will improve one's results in training and body composition if applied properly.
I am a regular contributor to Bodybuilding.com's and other websites message boards under the name, "Drdeadlift". I can be reached at email@example.com if anyone would like to contact me regarding training, diet or nutrition.
