So on the 21st of Febuary I will be competing in my first powerlifting competition ever.I joined a powerlifting club in my highschool and I have been working my arse off for the past few months and already I have seen massive gains. Overall I think I will do pretty decent but I doubt I will place, but then again, I guess you never know.

I am 16 years old and a junior in high school so I will be in the varsity level instead of the junior varsity level.:bang: But thats not really that big of a deal. Also I will be in the 220-242 weight class.

The weight I am going to go for will be...

Bench: 230
Squat: 350(mabye 360)
Deadlift: 450(mabye 460)

So if I get up 360 and 460 that will bring my big total to 1050. Which sadly I will not be making state, but next year I should easily make the wieght for state. All I need is a measly 1125 total for my wieght class, pfft piece of cake.

So I just thought I will let you guys know and I will be sure to try to get some pics.

Also if anyone has any tips I could definatly use them.

1. Open up with weight that you can do at least three times
2. Bring a cooler full of H20, snacks, fruit, protein,etc
3. Take 5-7 days off before the meet
4. Get a lot of rest the day before the meet
5. Have fun

My 16 yr old son has his first meet the same day as you.He's shooting for a 1200lb total at 195 if he can lose 5 pounds.If the weight doesnt come off he'll compete in the 210 class.We are both pumped up for this and cant wait to see how well he does.This is a raw meet with a belt and chalk the only gear allowed.
