Any NASA Powerlifters?

Does anyone compete in the NASA sanctioned meets? I’ll be competing on Jan 24th here in Oklahoma City. I’ve never done a powerlifting meet before. I’ll be hitting the 198 class.

I couldn’t find any numbers from their previous meets with the exception of their totals. Does anyone have any idea individually what numbers I should be shooting for?

I am an official with NASA. The results from the Jan, 2008 Natural Nationals:

Check out the NASA Training Forum:


  1. Gym bag
  2. Bp shirt(2), dl & squat suit or none if competing unequipped.
  3. wrist wraps
  4. singlet
  5. belt
  6. Cooler
  7. Protein shake & variety of snacks
  8. H20
  9. Towel
  10. Camera
  11. Membership card
  12. Extra $$$$
  13. Extra clothes
  14. Pen
  15. Rubbing ointment
  16. Deodorant
  17. Vitamin H20

Make sure that your openers are a weight that you can do @ least 3 times. It’s not how you start, but how you finish!! Also, take the week off before the meet because this will ensure that your body is full recuperated and ready for maximum effort on the platform.

Good luck!!



I’ve lifted in 2 NASA meets . 3rd will be in Waukesha , April 2009

I compete in NASA and I will be competing in OKC in January as well.
