    Help me find a meet!

    Hey, I really would like to participate in a meet and hopefully be able to set a bench record. I am a member of APA/WPA but they don't have any meets anywhere near where I am. I live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area of Texas and will be moving to Boston, MA to attend MIT in the fall (August 20something), I'll be there until January. If anyone knows of any upcoming meets in any federation in these areas, I'd be eternally grateful. I'm dying to compete.

    Heres some recent stats:
    5'11' 195lb (I can make the 198lb weight class)
    Age: 16
    Raw Bench (pause): 315
    Raw Deadlift: 335
    Raw Squat (all the way down like contest style): 315

    Thanks for any help.

    225lb @ 17% bodyfat, currently cutting
    Current lifts while cutting (all raw): bench 275x4, squat 365x8
    Estimated current maxes: 300 bench / 450 dead / 450 squat
    Competition / Gym PRs (from March 08)
    Bench: 325 raw / 385 loose shirt
    Deadlift: 450 raw ADFPF 04/26/08
    Squat: 405 raw

    There are meets all over. Search the web.

    Check out IPA, APF, APA, and USAPL.

    I'm sure one of them will have a meet in Texas sometime this year.
    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

    I has a blog.
    I has a facebook.

    I'm competeing in upstate NY just West of Albany on September 18th. It will be a 3-lift meet, but you can just do 1-2 lifts if you like. It is an APF/AAPF sanctioned meet. If you want the info I'll post a link.
