Still new to the O lifts and powerlifts. And while my training is geared towards the Highland Games, I find myself more and more interested in training for them and broadening my strength sports involvement.
I am really working hard on my dead and clean (it’s ugly). I started out with DB deads to learn the movement and have now moved onto barbell partials.
The question I have is (I’m sure this may be objective) what is a good Dead for someone my size 5’5" 155-160? Is there a benchmark, no pun intended?
It crept into my head that maybe I should try training for some comps. Do they offer a novice division to see if I like it? I’ve seen some that offer single lift competitions.
Any friendly advice/information would be welcome.
