View Full Version : Finding competition results

06-12-2005, 08:56 PM
Hey guys, new to the site, and I just finished my sophmore year in high school. I have been working out seriously for about a year and a half, although I've only recently(6 months'ish) had a routine that I follow. My question is where can I find recent(past couple years) results from powerlifting competitions in California. Right now my current stats are:
Bench: 315
Squat: 405
Deadlift: 405
Total 1125
Are these any good for 16/17 Teen division for 198 lb class, also 220lb. Right now I'm at about 192, but could lose a bit from fat. But if I do end up getting into competitions, I wouldn't want to worry about weight, so I'd be completely fine getting into the 220lb class.

Some background info on me: I play fullback for my football team, but I'm not the type of fullback where all I do is block, I'm often in single back formation.

But again, this looks like a cool site and I'm interested in being here more often.

Thanks for any help for finding the competition results.

I dont know where you live but im competing in an APA tournament on the 26th and it has state records for a number of states. I live in CT and the 16/17 198 weight class bench press is 440 lbs. Luckily im in the 148 hah. Check http://www.apa-wpa.com/statedirectory.html for records in your state.

Yeah, I'm in California. Interestingly, for the 16-17 198lb division, the bench record is only 280 and deadlift is only 375, while there is no record for squat. I guess APA isn't as big in California as in Connecticut. This is a good resource, even though its weird I am the most for my division, but also I would like to see a particular competition results. Thanks for the link

No problem man!You should check out the open division if your class is too easy. For instance the 16-17 148 record in CT for bench is 250 while the 148 open record is 365 heh. There are other organizations im sure you could check out too but i dont know much about the whole competing scene just started myself. Best of luck to you man.

Yeah, I just checked the drug tested open, and I am pretty far out classed. But I think this'll be fun to do in the offseason. Thanks and good luck to you too.

Thanks man, you interesting in competing regularly or just checking it out?

im checking it out right now, if i did start competing, it would probably be in november'ish, after football ended. but yea, it'd be cool to do it during the offseason regularly.

Awesome man, opposite coasts but if you really enjoy it maybe i'll run in to you some day. I'm looking to fully pursue powerlifting

I like it as well, but I need a hell of alot more strength for my weight. Im a rookie in my weight class (SHW)

06-13-2005, 02:14 PM
SHW is a tough class, im glad im a lil guy

Yea, Im afraid to even think of the kinda numbers Im up against. I still have much much more work to do before I can even dream about that. I would guess that a 550-575lb bench would be the min to be competitive and squats and deads in the 800lb range.

Guys like Harrington are what im going for. Squats can get up there even for little guys but bench just gets ridiculous after 500 lbs for littler guys, just cant keep up.
