I'm increasingly becoming more interested in someday competing in a powerlifting competition, but I've been wondering exactly what I should expect if I did one in the next year or two.
First off, are there any real age groups after a certain point? I'm 19 now, and will probably be 20 before I actually try an event. Is it all just done by weight after 18 years old?
If I were to enter a decent competiton, what should I expect for my weight class? I'm thinking about being anywhere betwen 180 - 210. I know I'm not necessarily weak, but I'd rather not go to a competiton and be completely embarrased. What are some average bench, deadlift, and squat numbers for say guys in a 190'sh pound weight class?
