i will be in my first powerlifting competition in mid september. it will just be a bench and deadlift competition and i will be in the 198-220 lb class as of now. if i stay in that class i need to bench 435 with a single ply, and dead 535, which could be within reach but i REALLLY would like to be in the 220-242 lb class, because those records are 403 and 507 which im pretty confident i can get.
the problem is im 200 or so, which means i need a solid 20 lbs in 4 months..... is this within reach?? any diet suggestions? should i just try to get my lifts even more up and stay in the 220 class or get my weight way up and jump a weight class????
