Powerlifting - Your first meet
Starting this thread for the powerlifters in this forum to share their experience, especially of their first meets, lessons learnt, etc. I hope this will be of help to potential newbies who, one day, are planning to get on the platform for their first meet.
Bodybygamma started a similar thread for strongman competitions, which, I thought had some pretty useful information, especially for folks like us who have never been in a strongman training gym, let alone a competition, and whose only exposure to strongman contests were the WSM events on TV.
Here's the link to the stickied strongman thread too, if anyone is interested -
Specific information, like tips on peaking, your style of warming up on the meet day, choosing starting weights for the lifts etc will be much appreciated.
