on competing, and training to compete
I'm looking for advice and information, so any help would be appreciated. I've been training for 6 years, and realise that without setting some targets, I won't make any real progress. I'm looking to enter powerlifting and weightlifting competitions, then move on the strongman type competitions. What I'd like to know is:
a) anyone have any information on powerlifting and weightlifting competitions. The info on anything recent seems to be rather thin
b) I'm in east london, and while I go to a decent gym, does anyone know of any training places nearby I can do some strongman type training?
c) For novice strongman comps, what's are good lifts to have to enter? I'm all of gaining experience, but I'd like to know I was beaten because others were simply better rather than I just wasn't strong enough. If it helps, I've got a 150kg bench, and 180kg squat, and a 210kg deadlift
Thanks in advance for all your help with this, and keep up the good work.
