I have an opportunity to compete in a small lifting competition that is hosted by the Naval Station I work out of. The contest is in early August. I think it would be fun, and kind of give me an introduction to these events.
My current 1RMs are:
I know they are pitiful, and I know that I probably don’t stand a chance of even placing in the contest, but I’m a novice lifter, and I’m really planning on doing this for fun and experience.
My question is, what are some optimal ways to really increase those lifts? Should I focus on them exclusively, or are there other exercises that would help me develop more quickly? If there are any tried and true programs that help, I’d be interested in learning about those, too.
Thanks in advance!
