My potential?

Considering I'm 37 yrs old, been powerlifting les than 2 years.
I am a medium frame, 6'2" and weigh light at 215, heavy at 230.
With continued committment and barring a major injury...What would my potential be without AS involved? No freaky genetics here...just typical, semi athletic. Currently at 480sq, 315b, 530dl
I would hope it could go to 650-700 dl and squat and 400+b..anyone with ideas? or experience with similar?

    Depends on your commitment, training and what gear you use (and what fed you lift in). I would think if you started training on the Joe Average program, squatted in a Ginny Phillips canvas and benched in a double denim, there's no reason why you couldn't squat 800 and bench 500 in an IPA meet or similar. But, in an IPF comp with single ply gear, the numbers you state sound difficult but achieveable - a good target I'd say.

    Thanks - I use single ply only as do others in my club and I sort of go by the number these guys (veterans) are doing. 600+/400+/600+ seems to be the norm in drug tested sanctions from what I've seen so far.
