i bet thats a HELL of a weight class

i have a desire to compete in a powerlifting meet as well but in the future, not the near future, even. But i have often wondered how tough it would be to compete in a ~200lbs weight class cause im sure there gonna be some 5' 8" dudes that are dam JACKED

Good point, but am I better off in a 220 class staying fat and happy, probably doesn't even matter I don't think my numbers will be very competitive with my setbacks and novice-ness anyways. But that would depend on the meet too I guess..

edit most the short guys in a sub 200 class are probably going to have a killer bench, I'll be long arm closegripping when I bench, but I may have an advantage on the deadlift.

Deadlift right now I don't lift anything I can't confidently lift for 5 reps, that includes singles. Just trying to stay safe, volume, occassional singles/doubles and a little speed work should take me back to where I need to be and then some.

Remember that you can lift in a meet doing bench only or push pull. Hell, most meets will let you do any lift on its own.


As for cutting, I think there is no reason to be as fat as the stereotypical powerlifter. Keep in mind that pretty much any elite lifter below 308 is actually pretty ****ing lean, especially raw guys. Just look at Stan Efferding, Eric Lilliebridge, or Matt Kroczaleski.

Unless you are reasonably close to a record at your "fat" weight class, there isn't much reason to NOT cut, especially as a newer lifter. Your lifts aren't strong enough for you to worry about losing strength, and at a lower weight class your coefficient likely to rise despite losing some strength. Besides, you'll get that strength back even quicker than before.

One caveat: for your first meet, just go lift. Don't worry about your weight unless you are literally within 2-3lb of the next lower weight class. Every lift you do will be a PR, so it doesn't matter.

Is there anywhere I can compete decently if I'm coming in with a 1070 total? Natural if that matters at all, would take me another year to hit 1100 probably. But would be looking to go at it in 6-8 months time when my shoulder and back are a bit better.
Don't push it man otherwise have fun doing daily tasks with back pain; couldn't drive, wash my hair, or brush my teeth without pain. It took me about a year to squat or DL without any back pain when I slipped a disc. Best advice would be to do every exercise that you can seated with your back supported. Drop the weight down and just lift for a pump or better yet just take a few months off/lift light 3 days a week.

Should I raise me rep range if I'm shifting focus to size building for the next month, then? Right now I shoot for 4-6 reps per set after the preA set.
