I have started powerlifting since beginning of the year, and I am really looking forward to compete to test how strong I am. Does anyone know any powerlifting meet in Los Angeles Area?
For your information I weigh 190lb and bench about 315, deadlift 405, and squat 365. Is this decent for my weight class?
Appreciate your help.

there is ususally a USAPL meet held at CSU Northridge sometime in the winter months i believe, Scot Mendelson just had an APF meet in Studio City, i think he is going to be hosting another meet in Studio city sometime around February. You should go pick up a copy of Powerlifting USA from a new stand or online and search the meet calendar in the back for something.
you should be able to find a meet from one of those feds somewhere near you.Charlie Telesco

Alright! Thanks a lot for your kind replies, guyes.
Danimal, you are dang right about doing it just for the heck of it. I know I have a long way to go, but I just want to get started.
After looking all the links Chuck provided I decided to compete in 2005 USA POWERLIFTING CALIFORNIA STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS in CSUN. My brother went to CSUN, and I am very familar with campus.
By the way the USAPL rule states that "One piece wrestling type singlet must be worn" Is this rule strictly enforced?
Again, thanks. You guys are awesome!

Oh, I was wondering when someone would ask that. Well, when my deadlift started improving faster than my other lifts, one of the guys at my gym started calling me that, so I thought it was catchy and started using it as my log in name on various boards. I deadlifted 661 lbs in my last competition in April at a bodyweight of 211 lbs, so its a respectable lift. Hope to pull 700 one of these days. I compete again in two weeks in Venice Beach, CA, so I'll see if I can pad that a little. I'll let you know.
