Whats up guys! I just wanted to introduce myself to everyone here. Im new to the board but have been reading articles here and there from IA for several years now and they are all very to the point and effective articles and routines. No fluff, no BS, and thats the way i like it. I came across this board and had to sign up. I hope i can help out any way i can and learn some more as i go as well.

My name is Sam Byrd, from tennessee. Some of you may know me from various forums since im all over the place on the net. if not here is a lil background on me. Im a 25 year old bodybuilder turned powerlifter because of my love for heavy iron. I have been at PL for the last 2 years and have managed to do pretty well when injuries dont rear up on me. My best contest lifts as of now are a 915lb World Record squat, 551 bench, and 683 deadlift for a 2149 total at 198. I will be competing again soon and hope to smash all those PRs. Im nursing a shoulder injury thats been getting worse lately so im going to hopefully find out whats wrong and get back to benching heavy again soon.

Hey big_byrd,

Was back in Chattanooga earlier this month and saw the new gym. I can't wait to join in August.

There's no age requirement for joining, right? (my brother is 14).

Thanks,

-Dave

Welcome aboard mate! Very impressive lifts and I'm sure many of us can learn a hell of a lot from you! I'm looking forward to hearing more about your training and stuff and hope the shoulder bets better quickly. :nurse:
