198 lb class


405 squat

385 bench

540 deadlift


In all seriousness, ive never been to a meet or anything, just trained for my 3 lifts. Does anyone have any advice? Are meets kinda like "do as many as possible for experience" or more of "wait until you can actually compete". thanks for any info fellas!

Depends how you look at it.


Say give it a shot. First meet or two are going to be learning experiences focus more on learning the commands and the process. Those numbers are good. I say go for it

you are always ready for a meet.


Power lifting is a personal journey and most power lifters love to see the people around the succeed and advance. All the pl guys I have had the pleasure of lifting with were very informative and helpful.

I have never had the time to go to a meet but from what I have heard it is a great experience. Lifting with power lifters is a great time and I would love to get involved with a pl crew, they are very supportive bunch of guys.

Those numbers are good brother just have to give it a shot, I did powerlifting and had my own crew was very fun.


For comparison sake I did the 165lb class but weighed 150.5lbs when I competed.


Bench - 300

Squat - 380

Deadlift - low 400's can't remmmber like 412.5 or something.

Need advice on training, cycle layouts, general supplements, diet or just have a general question? Just send me a PM!

A little late but definitely give it a try and step on the platform. Don't worry about getting a medal, winning best lifter, and such–especially for your first meet. Just go and do it for your own betterment.
