My name is Jeremy Wood; I am a natural powerlifter who does not train using a traditional powerlifting routine. I did my first powerlifting competition in May with the IPA, I received 4 Virginia State Records in the Raw Junior 220 class. My lifts were 430 squat, 295 bench press, and a 550 deadlift for a total of 1275. Recently I have begun to train some strongman events also. I am 6’ 215 pounds and currently trying to put on mass while gaining minimal amounts of fat. I have been training seriously for approximately 5 years. My senior year of high school I joined a local gym and started to train hard and learn a lot. I started out as a pudgy 160 pound kid that loved athletics. Now I am a 215 pound weightlifter.
My training methods are pretty simple; I stick to heavy compound movements and train a lot. I lift six days a week and three of those days I am squatting pretty hard. I stick to a push/pull style of workout, so Monday, Wednesday, and Friday I do a variation of a squat and deadlift. Then on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays I do a push and pull for my upper body. I love to train so I do it often, I plan to compete in more powerlifting competitions in the future and one day do a strongman competition also.
