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?

    First pl meet next month?

    I am enetring my first powerlifting meet next month. I have been lifting weights since I was 18. I am 30 now so I have some training time, but haven't done much powerlifting training. A powerlifter from my gym said I should try a meet and that I would probably do well once I get used to the equipment. I am looking for advice on how to train for the next 3 weeks. I will be lifting without a squatting suit or a bench shirt. I usually train in a pyramid on squats, bench presses and shoulders. I do deadlifts for sets of 5. MY best squat set is 495 for 6 reps and my best bench set is 405 for 6 reps. The most I have deadlifted for 5 is 475. I one time did deadlift 545. I can bench 465 at the end of my workout or sometimes I do 440 for 2 or 3 reps. I have never maxed out on squats. What do you suggest for traing and for my beginning lifts at the meet. Also I can use knee wraps, but I have never tried them. Should I weight until later or try them now. I weigh 214 right now, but will probably lift the 220 class. Do you think I will be competitive? Thanks for any help.
