Hey! Long time no see!

Post by Halfbreed » Mon Aug 23, 2010 2:40 pm

hey, for those of you who have been around for a few years and may remember me, I'm now out and attending law school! Still lifting daily, and will be competing in a school-based powerlifting competition February, in which I think i have a shot at winning. Let me know if you remember me.

@Halfbreed:

Congrats on getting back into society. And good luck in the upcoming powerlifting meet, and in school.

Good luck in the meet.

Yeah, you are remembered!

I remember the irony of the exchange between hoosegow and someone who was in the hoosegow!

Good job on the law school and the lifting.

Yes half, I remember you well. The guy that was bitching at a 700 Sq at a fairly low body weight. I wish I had your problem. Anyway, in law school? Good for you. Keep on posting.

Welcome back Half! I see you made it to Oregon instead of Austin. Good to see the freakishly strong one back.

Does your stomach still stick out like an alien trying to escape when you eat too much? :wink:

Nice to see you back on the forums.

Welcome back!

For some reason I've always mixed up hoosegow and halfbreed.

awwww, shucks! Yes, my stomach still sticks out like an alien, lol. I ended up in the Pacific Northwest for school, but not Oregon...that profile status is outdated....and yes, I'm still looking to better my squats, though I did make it up to 735 before leaving. I definitely need to work on my bench though.

I appreciate all the well wishes, and I will keep ya'll updated.

You know Halfbreed, your story is pretty fantastic. You would be a great role model for a lot of young people in your community. Best wishes to you.

Where in the PNW? I'm a Washingtonian--a real one, not a California import.

Hell, he's a role model for me. A 735 pound raw squat - I doubt I could even walk that out.
