I am pretty new to the powerlifting game, but I was looking through the USAPL records for my age (Teen 3, 18-19) and weight class (198) and saw that the total was pretty attainable.
It is 1317. I currently am sitting at at 425 squat, a 295 bench, and a 515 deadlift, putting me 82 lbs short.
I will be turning 20 in 6 months, and then wouldn’t be able to compete in that division, obviously.
Is this an attainable goal for a 6 month time frame? I have been lifting competitively for about a year, have done 1 meet in the UPA, where I did decently.
What would be a method of building strength, technique, and peaking that could be effective?
For what I have done to get to my current level is kind of a mix of high frequency with moderately high volume. I have never done a real set in stone program.
Also, my diet is no where near perfect, but I do try to consume about 250 g’s of protein a day and around 4000 calories.
As I said, I’m pretty new to the sport, and would love advice.
I would love to set a record or two before becoming a junior (20-23) where the total record is 1600 hahah.
