About powerliftin competitions...

I'm gonna try to find a local one to participate in for people under 19 I think it would be... I'm 17 right now and can do:
345lbs deadlift
300lbs squat
240lbs bench

That totals... 885lbs. Is that even close to average for a junior powerliftin comp. I just wanna do it for fun but I don't wanna go there and not even be on the charts heh.

    Alright Genon,

    what do you weigh? the lifts you are doing seem to be weighted fairly evenly and at your age are very good. British standard in the Under 20's is good but you have 3 years on your side and you should make good progress over the next few years. Saying that though your lifts are still strong esp for a 17 year old. Stick at it and stay off the gear.

    Mate , don't worry about your lifts. If you want to compete do it. The experience will only make you want to work harder for next one. My stepson is 15 @ 160 lbs and only totalling around 750 but want to enter one.

    Right now I'm trying to drop a few lbs while maintaining lifts... Currently 165 lbs. so I've lost about 10lbs of fat already while gaining strength. Is there a site where you can look at the lifts of people that enter the British standard?

    Mate you are young and have plenty of growing yet to do, don't stifle it by dieting at 17 years of age. If you train properly, eat well and let nature take it's course you will compete and win at a higher level in later years.

    I can give you an example of a strong young man in my powerlifting club.
    At 17 years, 165 lbs he had 3 years lifting experience and had a dead of 450, squat 475 and bench 260 with single ply gear....I would say he was a
    very good lifter considering everything.
