The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Competing in Powerlifting

    So, I was thinking I would compete sometime in the future, maybe when I can break a 1300 total raw. I was wondering, what is/are federations I can consider joining, and is my current total good to lead me into a solid power lifting career at 19 in the 242 weight class?

    Thanks, in advance.
    6'1" 250 lbs

    310 Bench
    385 Squat
    460 Deadlift

    1155 Total (raw)

    i would recommend competing for the fun of it. you shouldn't worry about breaking records or seeing if you fit in before entering a meet. compete against yourself for PRs. check out http://www.powerliftingwatch.com/node/4421 for local meets in the area and work from there.

    There are several great federations in FL. I suggest go watch a few powerlifting meets in your local city/state. This will give you a grasp about how a meet is conducted.

    Here is a link for meets in FL: http://www.powerliftingwatch.com/florida

    Don't wait until you can get a 1300 total, jump on in and have fun

    Thanks for the posts guys. I feel like competing will also give me more of a reason to keep training hard. We'll see. I won't compete until after waterpolo season ends in November of this year, so I have a while to research it.

    Waterpolo??? You are playing Waterpolo at 17.5% bodyfat?? And I'm not making fun of WP, you have to be in hella good shape to play that sport, it's a real grueling sport actually.

    Me personally, I prefer Marcopolo myself.
