I’ll make this as brief as possible.
I’ve made a switch from Olympic Weightlifting to Power Lifting for a few months to test out how well gaining absolute strength will translate to my C/J and Snatch.
I’ve decided to compete in a powerlifting meet in December for shits and giggles.
I weighed 190-193 consistently for about a year, however, after switching to a Power Lifting routine I’ve already gotten to 198+ in 3 weeks.
I want to get as strong as possible in the next 3 months, but with an upcoming competition in mind, I would rather compete in 198 than 220.
Would y’all recommend not paying any attention to my weight at all and just signing up for the 220 weight class?
If I sign up for a USAPL sanctioned meet, and don’t make weight at 198 will they bump me to 220, or just cut me?
The issue is that I don’t know how my body is going going to react to 3 months of Power Lifting and I want to sign up for the meet sooner rather than later.
