    Going to do my first meet in 5 weeks. Going to fly overseas just to compete as there are none where I live..

    Thanks for this thread helps me alot.

    So anxious that I will bomb out lol.. lets hope not.


    Question:

    Are you only allowed to warm up once in a lift?

    So after warming up on the squats, you can't warm up again right?

    for example, I do 315(opener) and I plan on doing 380(2nd attempt), am i allowed to go to the warm up room to warm up for the 380?

    I don't think so though.. I mean if thats the case people would just start with 135, and go back to the warm up room for the second attempt.

    Just making sure.

    Ya at my meet all the lifters wait back stage in the warmup room until their name is called. No one really warms up between attempts, because there wouldn't be enough time. Also, the weights are likely close enough together that you wouldn't need a warmup between them.

    Hi all,

    I hope this is the place to post about my concerns for attempting my first powerlifting meet early next year. Namely that I am concerned about being embarrasingly weak in comparison to the average attendee, despite not being able to find out what I should be aiming to lift.

    I've been lifting weights on and off for a number of years now, and my current lifts are as follows:

    Age: 24
    Height: 5' 8"
    Weight: 81KG/177lbs

    Bench: 82.5KG/181lbs for 5 reps (I have not attempted a 1RM)
    Squat: 120KG/264lbs for 5 reps (I have not attempted a 1RM)
    Deadlift: 140KG/308lbs for 5 reps (my PR for 1 rep is 170KG/375lbs)

    My 5 rep totals are therefore at 342.5KG/755lbs currently. This is without really concentrating on strength training or powerlifting and also I need to work on getting closer to ATG Squats to ensure my form is deep enough for competitions. Basically, I wanted to check whether or not I am in the right vicinity to start entering amateur competitions, where I should focus on improving and finally, what programmes (e.g. 5/3/1?) are recommended for beginner powerlifters.

    Thank you.

    no need to worry about your strength level relative to others. So long as you can follow commands and complete the lifts to the federation's standards, there's no reason not to sign up for the closet meet

    in terms of programs, id get on a standard linear progression plan.

    Hey, great thread by the way. Lots of helpful information to new people who want to start powerlifting. But I have a question about the federations. There are just so many, how do I choose the right one? I live right outside of Philadelphia in New Jersey and can't seem to find too many meets that are fairly local. Most of them I see are a couple hours away. I also look at the results of the meets and see that there are people my age but 50 pounds heavier and lifting almost 100+ more pounds than me. Should I wait a little and get stronger before starting or just get into it? I know it's a dumb question but I'm new and I can't seem to find anything.

    no reason to delay getting on the platform and setting an official total. Every meet you go to, there's a good chance someone will be stronger than you. You could be at the top of the weight class for 105kg, pushing a huge total but then a SHW in the same flight comes on and puts up even more monstrous numbers. No big deal. While powerlifting is a competitive sport, it's an individual sport in the sense that the only thing you have control over is your own success/strength.

    From the meets that ive been in, ive seen few Teen 1/Teen 2/Juniors comprise a good percentage of the lifters. Jump into it ASAP and dont look back.

    As far as picking a fed, find one that's close to you and just go for it. I would, however, take a good look at the rules and gear guidelines. Youtube is great for looking at how certain feds judge and structure their meets as well.

    I have a quick question, I recently signed up for my first meet. In registration I was asked if I was a member of the federation, at the time I was not so I clicked no. I signed up for the federation afterwords though, will this cause a problem on meet day?
