Southern Powerlifting Federation

I am looking at doing my first meet this year... there's one in September by the USPA and there's another around the same time by the Southern Powerlifting Federation.

Weight loss to strength loss correlation

While it's tough to lose weight and gain strength, I think we are talking about fairly fit individuals when using that analogy. My question is this: say someone, not me, I'm asking for a friend ;), is around 35% bf. How much could one reasonably lose before worrying about strength loss. I...
