About Me

Hi! I’m Jam – just another lifter obsessed with lifting.

Who I Am

I’ve been engrossed in the world of strength training and lifting for years, working my way through the motions like many of us: starting with terrible form, cheap equipment, and nothing in the way of instruction save for an endless supply of contradictory YouTube guides.

I’ve learned a lot, and plan to learn even more. This website is dedicated to helping others figure out where they should start their powerlifting journey. It’s also there to help people who just want some advice on how to get strong.

What This Is

If you’re looking to pick up build strength or muscle, or have been training for a while but are stuck, then I’m here for you. I’ve personally come across these questions and problems countless times. I’ve done the research on how to overcome them so you won’t have to. For the most part. Lifting is still very much an individual sport, and your mileage may vary in some respects. If you’re a beginner or an intermediate lifter and want to put more weight on the bar, you’ve come to the right place.

I won’t cover Olympic weightlifting or CrossFit on this page. One is a specialized sport requiring the attention of a coach and hours of practice and repetition on the barbell. And the other is CrossFit. Which just isn’t my cup of tea.

This website isn’t for advanced lifters – these are men and women who have been training for more than five years and can lift several times their own bodyweight with perfect form in the bench, deadlift, and squat. The resources here are meant to give people an accessible start to strength training, for fitness and for powerlifting. I work hard to dispel myths, source my claims, and explain my thoughts. Welcome to my Powerlifting Life.
