New to Powerlifting

What’s up everyone I have been lifting weights for some time now, but new got interested in to powerlifting. I am so confused in the process for trying to apply for an IPF competition. I’m choosing IPF because I’m stationed overseas so it’s a lot more difficult to go for competitions back in the states. Does anyone have any advise?

You have to sign up for a local meet wherever you are, you can’t just go straight to IPF international competition. You would have to win nationals wherever you are too, or at least place in the top 3 or so in your weight class.

You need to look online for meets where you are, and in many places there are other feds as well.

What country are you in?

I am currently in Italy so I’m having trouble finding the correct federation and finding meets to compete in.
