RE: General Powerlifting comp Q
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???
