Here are some state raw records:
The "record" total for 165 in Alabama is 1045.
The "record" total for 165 in Georgia is 1165.
I would say anything over 800 (which is where you are) stands a good chance of placing high in a meet. You'll place much better then you expect. Depending on the competition, you could even take 1st.
Thanks for the link! Good to know what kind of things I can expect to be up against.
I'd probably be ecstatic for weeks if I took 1st place. haha
Btw, what kind of weight-jumps do you think is optimal for your lifts in a meet? Also, is there somewhere I can find a warm-up template for meet lifts or something? Not entirely sure how to warm-up for meet attempts.
