After doing my 1RM deadlift at the gym one day about a month ago and being impressed that I pulled 465, I became curious as to what the world record for my age and weight class is…and maybe even if the record could be mine. I’m 15 and in the 198 weight class. After looking at several organizations I found theWNPF and saw that my lift was higher, and the my squat and bench are too. I’m going to one of their competitions in September to qualify for their worlds competitom to hopefully set those records. Currently my lifts are:

As I still have a few weeks to train I’m looking to get my lifts up at least 20 pounds each…my questions are about how I should warm up at the competition, what weight I should do for my first second and third rep for each lift, and also what to expect at a powerlifting competition because this is my first one. Any help/advice is greatly appreciated!
