I'm Turkish, live in Germany and lifting since December 2006.
I had an operation, which caused me to have a break for 2 months, but now I'm back in train.
So I was training for about a month and now I am/I was ill an had to take a break for 10 days.
Still not fit, but went to gym and used less weight, to keep my technique.
Breaking the German Raw Teen(?) Powerlifting record in the -165/-181.5Kg class.
That means, that i would have got to lift about 1300lb until I'm 18.
