Hey guys! I had a quick question:
I'm 18, been on a 5x5 for 5 months with no prior training. 148lbs @ 5'7", Bench: 165x5, Squat: 250x3, and Deadlift: 325x3.
Now, I was originally planning on competing at my first meet next year when I have a bit more experience, but I was advised to go and compete asap to get some experience. There's a raw nationals meet in Toronto on June 12th; teens lift free, and I don't think there is a qualifying total.
I'm just not sure if it's enough time to get ready. I don't know my ORM's, and I have no clue how to prepare or what to do at a meet or anything, really.
So any advice you guys could give me on the subject would be awesome. Should I compete? If so, how should I prepare?
Thanks in advance.
