On April 17th I'll be competing (RAW) in my first full meet. I was wondering what things I should bring.
I was looking on deep squatter and I was wondering why baby powder would be included in the lift of things to bring. Why would you bring baby powder to a meet?
for deadlifting... put it on your thighs.
Now I know why PL's always seemed to have 'chalked' themselves up for DL's!!
It makes a huge difference. I used to get my deads stuck on my suit at the top. But with baby powder it just slides right up.
One thing i neglected my first meet that i havent since is FOOD. Meets last a long time. I buy two six packs of snickers and eat them throughout the day. here is my non gear list.
- Pepsi One
- Extra clothes(just in case you have to go to the hospital)
- Flip Flops
- Video camera
Also, if you haven't got a squat suit/ Bench shirt what sort of clothing do you recommend - just t-shirts and baggy trousers..?
at most meets you have to wear a singlet regardless.
