Default New to competition

Iím thinking about competing in my first push pull. Wondering if anyone has any words or wisdom for me or training ideas. I donít know what they look for in competition and I want to train for every possible situation. Any help or suggestion is greatly appreciated.

My best advice is to pick a date. Don't change your training and don't worry about weight classes. Just go have a blast.

Thanks so much! I looked for something like this so I must have missed it.

Best Meet Lifts:
Squat = 325

Dead = 353
Total = 888

The iron is there during my times of happiness, sadness and anger. The iron is there available through the 4 seasons and inclement weather. The iron is there to either comfort me or motivate me. The Iron manages to show me how strong I am or how humble I need to be. The iron does not yell, but it always demands respect. The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.

That's what I was worried about. If I will even lift enough to be taken seriously. I don't know why I think that. I'll just have fun with it. Thanks for all the help!
