@littlesleeper, the competition was pretty fun. The pacing of it was very nice and smooth, the environment and tone was productive to big lifting, and the fellow competitors were all super friendly.
I competed in the Raw divison, 198lb weight class, and I got third place in my division.
If you haven’t done a meet yet, look for one near you within the next 2-5 months and consider doing it. Everyone at the meet is supportive regardless of your weights or experience, and prepping for meet, doing a meet, and finishing a meet are all such exciting processes. Plus it really helps you focus in on your training.[/quote]
Thank you for the response. Very encouraging. I think I will spend this winter (next 6 months or so) running some powerlifting style programs and come spring I’ll enter my first competition under the 198lb weight class.
Do you have your next meet or two planned out already?
