+ 16 Lean with power

Lean and powerful: 2 months after pct.
Not a bodybuilder but a powerlifter adapting the bodybuilding lifestyle. I train under the so called "powerbuilding" principles. Will enter raw bench press competition soon, as I haven't completed in powerlifting since this covid mess started. Just getting back on track and back into my groove. I try to imitate 70"s gear protocols.
Eating 4 meals a day with a post workout protein and carb shake. Gatorade intraworkout at times. Simple has worked for me, why change? You have to know your body. Of course other details I'm leaving out but want to keep it brief. Quest for a raw 600 bench. Raw world record is right at 800 by Jullian Maddox. Lol nope I won't get that!

Alot of the best bodybuilders started there careers as powerlifters. I think you are one of those rare breeds that looks like a bodybuilder but can move a ton of weight like a powerlifter.

with your many years of bodybuilding experience I'm sure you've seen alot. Thanks Mak

Okayyyyyy u see my man D-Wayne showing off that top shelf!!!
Know how I knew my chest was on point? When I can hold a soda can between my pecs.
I bet u could hold a mason jar .
That muscle maturity in those upper pecs is hard for a lot of guys but u definitely ain’t lacking when it comes to the top shelf.
Also, are those 22’s I see?
At least 21’s right?
Glad u posted D-Wayne.
Big dawgs in the house.
Like they say,” u gotta be 2-something, to do something ( meaning u gotta be at least 200lbs to hang with the fellas. Lmfao!!!
I’m sure somebody in here has heard that.

Looking swole my friend! 600 bench... means you are moving 500 regularly.. that is very impressive dwayne!

dwayne44's picture

Thanks my man! Even better perspective cause I know you're an analyzer...
9th grade: 330 bench/ 10th grade:350
11grade:375/ 12grade:415 bench at 184 pounds

HanginLow's picture

Damn bro 12th grade benching 415 sub 200lb you really were THAT guy in the gym, I was the skinny bean pole who did not even lift.

Very impressive my friend, blessed with genetics, but I have known countless that squander their potential. You put in the work.

dwayne44's picture

Again thanks my man. And yea there are plenty of genetically blessed guys that waste their potential. I know guys on the streets that could of been future Olympians

dwayne44's picture

Awesome brother. Im up to a raw 500lbs. Covid fucked me up.

dwayne44's picture

500Ibs? You are a strong dude brother. Thanks man

thahulk2014's picture

Yeah. I was up to about 525 before covid. I got double lung pneumonia and haven’t been the same but back up to 500. Can also hit 500 on the incline.

press1's picture

500 on an incline is some serious shit - Defo worth 3 to 4 on a flat.

press1's picture
