Open question: Which Fed are you part of, or use to 'benchmark' your lifts againsts?

100% Raw is the one I currently look at as the records are easliy accessible & lifters do not use any equipment etc.

Are there other similar feds?

I prefer the multi-ply feds. I lift in the SSA, APF, IPA. A lot of it comes down to the feds that actually run meets in your area of the country because a lot of people don't have the time/money to travel all over the place to compete.

Pretty much every fed has a raw division.

I am in the Greater London area (North London specifically). Do you know what feds operate around there?

I measure myself against the best lifts in the world. No matter what the FED the all time records are there. You top one of them and it does matter where you did it.

CPO, CPU, APF, and SSA are all the ones I've competed in so far. I'll be doing another SSA meet in a few weeks (I'll be doing single ply; but they do allow multi), and CPU in September (gonna do this raw).

I want to be an "anywhere, anytime" kind of lifter; I plan on mainly focusing on multiply once I finish school/move to train with a good team, but I still want to compete raw/single ply aswell. It'd be nice to be able to have an official total in loads of different circumstances.

NASA & USA Powerlifting

These are the two largest federations (NASA over 2000 memebrs and USAPL between 4-5000 members)and both run great meets.
NASA has the 2 Pro meets this year and USA Powerlifting is also the gateway to the IPF World Championships.

The BPC comes to mind, but I live in New York so take that with a grain of salt.

Where in north london are you?

I work in Angel, and live in Hertfordshire. I compete in the B.W.L.A under IPF rules and you do have the option of competing either raw or equipped.

The top 100 in plusa magazine and the all time lists on powerlifiting watch. As Eric mentioned it is not important which fed it was done in. I just want to be the best.

I prefer the single-ply bench press platform. I mainly compete in N.A.S.A., but have competed in 9 other federations.

I've done APF/AAPF, WABDL, and APA. I'd like to try a USAPL meet sometime soon.

I have competed in the WPO/APA/APF/AFPF/USAPL/WABDL/APC/UPA.
My suggestion is to lift at the meets that you think would be fun with
good competition.

Soon I will be doing a USPF and next year IPA.
