We just got back from my last powerlifting meet & I could not be more thankful for this sport. I know this sport gets a lot of internal conflict but I love it.
There’s a lot of shade being thrown from inside & outside of powerlifting. Non-equipped lifters are better than equip, drugs are better than drug free, USAPL is better than RPS, the list goes on. What this really boils down to is intentionally creating reasons why your way takes more effort or is better.
The world is not as negative as we are making it. Good people still exist & they are in abundance. You just have to look for them. It’s all about what you choose to put your focus & intentions into.
