After not participating in an athletic competition since Little League, as a young(ish) 45-year old, I donned the Inzer Gear and stepped out onto the platform for a small APA Powerlifting Meet in Georgetown, SC. My oldest son served as inspiration, training consultant and Meet handler.
Round II at the APF
I assembled Team Joe, which consisted of my younger son and my daughters’ boyfriends, and headed to Columbia to compete in the APF and try to improve my total in shiny new METAL gear.
Although I’ve waffled for years on whether I’d complete again, I knew that if I did, it would be without Powerlifting Gear, and while I claim the right to change my mind, as it stands now, I will compete in 2017.
