    Advice? Sure. Read a lot and experiment.

    There are lots of ways to train for powerlifting.

    At your age, sise, and assumed level of experience, I'd stick with something pretty simple, something where you practice squatting, benching, and deadlifting a lot.

    Diets are designed to ensure complete nutrition and recovery.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei
