SO I haven’t been on this side of the site in a while. Started out here but once I moved to a gym without bumper plates (at PT school and living on loans isn’t a good time to pay for a gym when you have a free one) I made the switch to powerlifting. Competed in it in Dec for a push pull and won my division but it was a small meet. Nonetheless, the point of this comment is where on the internet is there a list of weightlifting competitions?
I’ve searched for a while but have found none. Does crossfit sponsor some? Are there typically ~1 in each state throughout the year? I made the mistake (or not) of making it over to the Cal Strength website a few weeks back and took a deload week and did a ton of hang power snatches and needless to say, I’m back to being enamored with the Oly lifts again (It does help that I PR’d in my second workout on hang snatches over my best from the summer when I was training it frequently).
I know weightlifting isn’t as popular here in the states but if I could find some possible competitions coming up, I would consider strictly training them. If not, I believe I may start throwing the lifts back in, albeit more than likely the power versions, on my lower days as there is a PL comp coming up in June I’d like to hit. Probably snatches one day and cleans one day, hopefully some jerks somewhere in there too.
Anyways, any comps or a list of comps someone can direct me to? I’m in TN and on loans so traveling too too far out of the south isn’t much of an option.
