  • Big Dave Smith- 12 weeks out

    Pictures shown are actually 13 weeks out, but this weekend I'll be 12.

    Weight- 265
    Height- 5'9
    Target- NPC Atlantic States and NPC Junior Nationals


    Things are shaping up really well for this journey. I attribute my gains to guys like Dante Trudel, Shelby Starnes, Scott Stevenson, Dave Palumbo, and John Meadows. I haven't worked directly with John, but I've stolen a BUNCH of his ideas. The rest have pretty much given me the best info possible, so thank you.

    Dante has laid out the training routine with very specific details. Shelby is helping me with getting lean. I'm lucky to have these guys in my corner.

    I'll start posting more in this board. I've slacked off for a while. If anybody has any questions or needs help with anything, shoot me a PM or get me on Facebook. John Meadows said it best when we met. People have often helped me without asking much in return. The best I can do is help others in the same way.

    If you want to see training videos or what what my prep is like, I'm most likely going to start a video blog soon. Suggestions are welcomed.


    Let me know what you guys think. I'll be growing into this show for sure. I've had a habit of doing that for the past few years. I anticipate 6 plate squats for reps in the near future.

    Stay tuned!

          Yup, that's the plan. My body usually hits some pretty crazy numbers in the gym betweeen 5-10 weeks out, then I have to take it easy because things start to wear me down. In the spring, I was around 5 weeks 3 days out in this video...

          I'd really like to get a set of 8 this year with that weight.

                Right now, I split my time between LA Fitness in Indianapolis and a private powerlifting gym. I'm moving back east in a week or two near Philadelphia in the suburbs.

                    Bucks County, PA. I wound up moving to Indianapolis for a job and a few other reasons. I thought the grass was greener, so I went for it. Turns out I should have kept what I had. Now I'm starting a new chapter in life.
