So there's a local bench press competition that I was considering entering. It's about 2 weeks away. I am currently 180lbs (168-180 weight class) and can max at about 275 on a good day. Is that pretty good for my size or do you think I'd get destroyed?

If you are going raw, I think thats pretty good. In my Power lifting gym this is exactly what we train for. I max 2 weeks ago raw was 300lbs even and 176lbs. I have been working to get there for a while. But I say take a shot cause there are a lot of little tricks and rules that you need to learn in order to do well. But Go for it brah and kick ass.Losers always whine about there best..... Winners go home and **** the prom queen!!!

Most cases you will have a weigh in...then a rules meeting...some have equipment checks...if it is a full meet...then the order will go: squat, bench, and then the deadlift.
Most places will have a warm-up room...what you do in between the rounds is up to you...just make sure you get your next attempt turned in and listen for your name to be called out.
