General Powerlifting comp Q

After this year of doing bb i may take a few years off and try some powerlifting.
What kind of poundages would the winning guy (85kgs bodywight or closes weight class) be putting up in an average comp?

    what federation would you be going for? drug tested? or otherwise?

    will you want to compete in the equipped or un-equipped ranks? (powersuits/shirts/wraps,etc)

    @85k bodyweight you have 2 options, either slim down to the 82.5k class or have some room to breathe in the 90k class.

    im a 125k lifter and have been powerlifting for almost 2 years, its a great transition from BBing to PLing (i was crap for BBing,lol) cso the lower rep workouts suit some people down to the ground

    all i can say from my experience the 90k lifters are one of the most hotly contested weight classes, a chap called Justin Hurley competes at that weight and is one of the best or if not the best pushing up almost a 400k squat, 200k for the benchpress and hovering just over the 300k mark in the deadlift. but he is exceptional, also, lifting equipment does help in many cases.

    what are your lifts at the moment?




    sorry, how many world records???

    i have just started powerlifting and its a good direction to take your training - justin is world class but there are plenty competing at every level - very good comradery between lifters , doesnt matter how much your lifting!!

    have a look at justins site: www.powerliftinguk.com

    also take a gander at the powerlifting totals - a good range of lifters.

    In a drug tested sanction around here some very respectable lifts for a 82.5lg lifter(181 me thinks)
    would be around///

    raw -
    sq 375-400+ or anything over db bw
    bench 275-300
    dead 375-400+

    assisted
    sq 425-450+
    bench 300-325+
    dead 425-450+

    Again this would be amatuer, single ply, drug tested...untested sanctions with unlimited gear even at a local level would be considerably more

    Take a look at the regional records and see
