    Good Numbers For First Meet

    I currently weigh 160, 10% BF, fasting. I've been wanting to do a powerlifting meet to really see my capability, but I am a very competitive person and don't want to show up completely out of my league.
    My current lifts are:
    Squat: 375 (Easy, could more than likely hit 405 in a few months)
    Deadlift: 465 (Easy as well, room for another 20-30 in a few months)
    Bench: 255 (Rather difficult, maybe +10-15 in a few months)
    With that being said, should I look to getting a coach to help me improve numbers / help me prepare for the weeks leading up to a meet?

    A coach would help immensely IMO.
    Confidence, skills, addressing weaknesses, fixing form... etc. If you can swing it do it.
    Don't wait too long for your first meet - if you don't sign up you'll never do it (says the guy who almost waited until he was 50 for his first meet).
    Why NOT?

    5'6", 210

    10/10/2020 FS meet: 407/303/474

    Just jump in bub. Youll meet some great people will give a lot of advice. I wouldnt worry so much about fasting cutting weight, or even numbers. Just try to go, learn, and finish the meet.
