    Regardless of the level you are at, if you have the disposable income, I would recommend hiring a coach for your training and/or nutrition. You can learn a lot by listening to the coach and apply it...

    Performance in a weight class is determined by total by rules of powerlifting. End of discussion. There is no need for further comparison needed.

    In every contest I know of that uses Wilks to determine best lifter, the weigh in weight is used.

    Except that a lean guy that is 205 will not have as much strength potential as a 220 lb lifter with the same muscle mass and a bit more fat. I suppose if you want to get academic....one could say...

    No. The weight class that allows the lifter to maximize muscle mass while, eventually over the long term, minimizing fat to fill out the upper end of the class will be the best choice. Then when they...

    Winning what?

    As Arian said before, 99% of competitions give you a victory in your weight class based on total weight. World records are not based on Wilks. Wilks means f*ck all for those. Best...

    That is it. I was going to enter his contest, but I already committed to a local one in the same organization that day. Going to try and support him in the future though.

    What you have said makes a good degree of sense. Just keep tabs as you progress and you will be good. Any questions you may have, let me know. Always happy to help out when I can.

    That is fair, but don't be surprised when folks in a powerlifting thread think in contrary.

    I don't like deadlifts on event days as my event training can take 3-4 hours as it is. Plus, most events will have a deadlift component to them.

    As for tires, I hate tire flips. I will only train...

    Perfect thought. As long as you don't limit your weight class to something that is very, very light for your height (6'+, <200 lbs). That is just silly.

    Agree. If I slide a few months, it will take 3-4 massages (1x/wk) to get back on track. Rather inexpensive in the grand scheme of things too. I think I pay $75 for 90 minutes or something like that....
