I'm going to be doing a power lifting competition with some of my football teammates tomorrow. The lifts are bench and clean.

I've never done this sort of thing before, what should I expect? Is there anything I should know or do before I compete tomorrow?

Just make sure you wait for each command to be given. For example, if you have a successful bench, don't rack it up before they tell you. They will give all the rules and stuff before the meet starts. My high school is having one tomorrow.

Well, set two PRs, felt like I could have done more in both lifts though...

175, 190, 205(PR) bench
175, 190, 205(PR) clean
Total: 410

I was in the 215 weight class because I wasn't thinking when I had a heavy lunch and breakfast... I weighed in at 200, 2 lbs short of the 198 weight class :( I would have gotten 5th in the 198, but I ended up getting 9th in the 215. There were about 16-20 people in each weight class, so as a sophomore lifting with juniors and seniors, I felt I did pretty good.

Not bad at all. It's always great to set PR's. Just curious, but what were the winning totals?
