I did my first PL meet Saturday - it was a local USAPL meet. I'm 19 y/o, at 173 (181) I hit 430/250/520 totally raw no belt or anything.
I looked at the USAPL lifter rankings, and this would put me in top 20 for squat, dl, and total for this year. I'm wondering...do I have to contact USAPL to get my name in the top 20 (for teen 18-19 y/o), or will they automatically put me there once they get the results of the meet?
Also, I was not drug tested for the meet...are only national meets drug tested?
Finally, I'm considering purchasing gear for my next meet. I'm thinking about purchasing a Metal squatter and a Metal bencher along with metal wraps and a belt from EFS. I will contact EFS this week to see what they think about this. What do you guys think?
