My first exposure to PL was spotting a 2 day meet.
Well run meet which meant that the head judge was on us to KEEP IT MOVING!
I got beat to death. Dumped 700+ pound squats fell like rain. I lifted 100 pound plates to chin level like 32,457 times (+/-).
Deadlifts were no small thing either. I was obsessed with making sure the plates on my side were gas tight.
I lost over 3 pounds of water weight day one and I was slamming free Gatorade.
If you are competing, I'm sure whomever you committed to will understand if you most humbly step down.
