Hey everyone, I'm just trying to get into powerlifting this year and I'm just trying to get a guage on what kind of numbers I would have to put up at your average USAPL regional qualifier, specifically in the 148lb class, to not get completely embaressed?

I know that it completely and totally depends on who's there and hundreds of other conditions and it's hard to even ballpark it, but any guidance would be GREATLY appreciated.

If you total 1,100 or more, you'd probably have no problem qualifying in the 148's.

That's crazy! What about for a 20 year old?

Those numbers are right on. You total Elite at 1485 if I'm not mistaken. 1100 or so would be a good qualifying number. I'm hoping to break 900 at my first meet. I would shoot for higher, but I'll be competiting raw, as I won't have time to get used to any equipment I might get for Christmas.

1100 for 148's? How about 275s'?

APA elite is 1941 for the 275's, and a lot of the national qualifiers will break 2000. As for the USAPL... I'm going to guess somewhere in the 1700's or 1800's.

Thanks Borris, looks like the Australian leauge record is a measly 1600 fully equiped in the 125kg class, yikes.

It might not be that high in the USAPL, I was just making a guesstimate considering that they're (supposedly) drug free and single-ply. I'll look into it and come up with some real numbers.
