Your First Powerlifting Meet

Your First Powerlifting Meet

Advice from powerlifter Al Brown (LtL on the forum).


I would train as per your plan. Go reasonably heavy in the last singles session, maybe up to an opener or a last warm-up. Do NOT miss a weight. Lift in your singlet and in the same shoes as you will come meet day. Practice how you play.

For meet day I might take a pre-WO but be aware of how you normally feel after a session. If you suffer from an energy slump later then be mindful that you may have to wait a while between squats and bench and then again before deads. I normally just take a little caffeine before each squats and bench and then go all out for deads as I know I donít have to worry about crashing. READ MORE

Thanks for posting this Steve although i'd like to point out that the picture isn't me. I'm fatter and deadlift less :)

Yeah ignore the pics. I have to use stock images or generic pics so we don't get sued.

No worries I was just taking the opportunity to crack a self deprecating joke :D
