Cliffs: I want to start a powerlifting team, how should I do it.
My school doesn’t have one and I miss the comraderry and exchange of ideas from the PL club at my old school. I don’t think it would be hard to get one going, but keeping it going would be the hard part.
- I’m still a novice by PL standards (however, I am one of the strongest for my size at my gym so that might give me a little credibility to people I try to recruit)
- I’ve haven’t attended a powerlifting meet yet.
- The facilities available would be the college gym which does not allow chalk, does not have a dead-lifting platform, and uses the dreaded octagon plates.
I’m thinking I should just go for it and maybe as a group of people with a love for the iron, we’ll be able to muddle through as a PL team. That’s my hope.
Is there some sort of research into this I need to do?
Would I just be better off powerlifting solo and not starting a team until I have more experience?
