    Ok read the whole thing and it left out the only things I wanted to know. What are the weight classes? Are their experience divisions like novice? Age divisions? What weight class would I be in and what weight can I expect my fellow competitors to be lifting in my weight class *assuming it's a local meet*. Should I even bother with a 405lb bench, 495lb squat, and 505lb deadlift at my weight? Lifts are raw. I' m about a year out from my show but I've been starting to powerlift in my big three lately so I want to try my hand at a powerlifting meet. Thanks, will rep for answers.

    Yes. Do a meet. You'll not regret it. Weight classes are stated on the entry form of the meet. Likely you'd be in the 199-220lb class. You'll see a wide range of lifts for guys in your group. Some bench 250, others will bench 500. your totals bring you up to over 1400 which would very likely be a good showing.

    Do it.

    The only way you'll ever do it, is to Step up and Do It.

    Thanks and repped. Do most guys use gear? (shirts,wraps,etc?) I've never used any but will consider training with them to prepare for the meet.

    Again, the use of gear will differ with each federation. One may consider Knee Wraps "Geared" another would set them as "Modern Raw" Then you get single-ply and Multi-ply divisions. Some guys will be geared, others won't and it varies from Meet to Meet.

    You're looking at $40, for a singlet, and $75-$100 for a Full power meet. You'll spend less than $200 and the result is a perfectly precise and clear definition of what you can do.

    Commit and do it. The biggest battle you'll face at your first meet, is Yourself. No "Gym Numbers", "E-stat", or "Cheated" lifts.

    In other words "This is Me."

    Do It.

    WnW - I'm a little worried by your numbers. With only a 10lb difference between your squat and deadlift I'm concerned that your squat may not be competition depth. Also, is your bench paused or touch and go?

    Not sure if this link has been put here yet. I read this before doing my first meet: http://startingstrength.com/articles...meet_baker.pdf

    Most important thing I learned from doing my first meet is eat and rest plenty during the meet. You will be sorry if you do not.

    I was bouncing off the walls between lifts. All the experienced high school kids ate pizza and went to sleep after squatting.

    By the time dead lifts rolled around I was so cramped and fatigued I could barely lift.

    Subsequent meets this was not a problem. Bring food, water, and a pillow with you.

    Question, I went to my first meet yesterday and is there anywhere that tracks meet results/individual results online? Or a ranking system for everyone? Like for the Rubik's Cube, everyone has their own results page with online rankings and everything. It was a casual meet and there were only a couple weight classes, so idk how it'd even work.

    Powerliftingwatch.com is one of the best places to go as far as looking for online rankings and really anything powerlifting, although this will require you to make an account to see any useful information on there. (It's free to make an account)

    At small meets, how long do you have between lifts usually? Do you often find yourself having to keep warm between attempts?

    what do you consider small?

    At most meets, they will break the groups out into flights of about 15 +/- people. Which gives you about 20 minutes between lifts. That 20 minutes goes fast. I always have a sweat shirt or jacket to put on between attempts. Just enough to slip on and off quickly.

    One thing that i learnt at my first meet was to bring some resistance bands/tubes for warming up, nothing worse than getting all pumped up about going to a meet and not being able to perform to you maximum potential cause you couldn't get in any sets in the warmup room

    Awesome info! I just started training 3 weeks ago and I'm excited already for our first meet in March...I think it will be a great learning experience.

    I'm short, just 5'0, and currently practice my bench by putting 45 lb plates under my feet since they don't touch the ground when I'm on the bench. Will this be allowed in competition? I'm sure they have some method to accommodate, just wondering what it will be.

    Ive seen them use phone books before, but it may depend on the fed

    It's your first meet, don't worry about doing a peaking cycle or cutting weight for a weight class or anything like that. Just follow whatever program you are already doing, rest the week before, pick easy 1st attempts, and go there to make lifts, gain experience, and have fun.

    He could shorten it, or go on one of the russian peaking cycles which are 6weeks

    ^^ This best advice ever. I did it before my first meet and it worked bar some nerves getting in the way but had good fun and even placed. I didn't make my 'planned' weight class but had a lot of fun. Week before I rested with 2x sessions of very light speed work to keep my eye in.
