So, I was thinking I would compete sometime in the future, maybe when I can break a 1300 total raw. I was wondering, what is/are federations I can consider joining, and is my current total good to lead me into a solid power lifting career at 19 in the 242 weight class?

Thanks, in advance.

i would recommend competing for the fun of it. you shouldn't worry about breaking records or seeing if you fit in before entering a meet. compete against yourself for PRs. check out http://www.powerliftingwatch.com/node/4421 for local meets in the area and work from there.

There are several great federations in FL. I suggest go watch a few powerlifting meets in your local city/state. This will give you a grasp about how a meet is conducted.

Here is a link for meets in FL: http://www.powerliftingwatch.com/florida

Don't wait until you can get a 1300 total, jump on in and have fun:thumbup:

Thanks for the posts guys. I feel like competing will also give me more of a reason to keep training hard. We'll see. I won't compete until after waterpolo season ends in November of this year, so I have a while to research it.

Waterpolo??? You are playing Waterpolo at 17.5% bodyfat?? And I'm not making fun of WP, you have to be in hella good shape to play that sport, it's a real grueling sport actually.

Me personally, I prefer Marcopolo myself.
