First Powerlifting Meet in April. Advice?

I have my first powerlifting meet April 13 just wondering if you guys have any tips/advice for my first meet.

  • Have fun
  • Stick to the plan
  • Open light, no even lighter than what you’re thinking
  • Eat food you’re used to eating
  • Don’t cut weight
  • Have fun
  • Talk to other lifters
  • Thank the judges and spotters

Make sure you know the rules before you show up at the meet and make sure to lift to competition standards in training.

Forgot to add that, good tip. It’s amazing how many people don’t look over the technical rules for completion of a lift. Also pay attention to the attire section.
