To help the typhoon victims in the Philippines, I am creating a fundraiser based on lifting my heaviest weight ever in a Powerlifting meet (the deadlift division). This is my first meet, which will hopefully be out of many meets. My heaviest weight ever to deadlift was almost 400lbs., without a belt and using metal plates. This was almost a decade ago. I will attempt to lift 350lbs.-380lbs. for the sake of my safety, but to also set a goal and get out of my comfort zone. My goal is to raise at least $400 to help the victims. The meet is less than 4 weeks away.
