I would suggest to do the meet, but not for the record. Do it to test yourself. With so many federations and water down records, most dont mean much. Do it because you will enjoy it!

FYI, some chalk and you will be good to go, ditch the gloves!

I don't see how gloves help with grip strength. If anything the material will add circumference to the bar making grip more difficult. They're also not skin tight potentially causing more wiggle from what I'd imagine. Ditch the gloves and try chalk. If that doesn't allow you to hold the weight try gripping with one hand facing knuckles out and the other in the opposite direction.

I agree with JB, you should compete but not just for the record. You are only competing with yourself.

The first time I competed, I broke 4 VA state records with the IPA. Does it matter? No. It only matters to me that I went competed and did my best.

Don't just compete to break a record, the records don't matter with all the classes and federations. You get nothing for records

Do a meet. See how your second attempt goes, then go for the win. I think some federations will allow a fourth attempt if it is for a record. Might want to check it out. But, bottom line, if its in you, then do it. The regret of not trying is worse than the pain of failure.

I did squat only in my last meet and got a bench press trophy.
