    Lightbulb Tips for first powerlifting meet?

    I'm 16 and I'm planning to enter my first powerlifting meet sometime next year. I currently bench press 90kg, squat 120kg and deadlift 150kg. All of these lifts are using only a belt. My lifts are constantly progressing as my forms improves and as I discover my own optimal techniques and leverages. My total is 15kg away from the total necessary to qualify for the UK Raw Nationals in my weight class (74kg), so I'm very excited to get some experience in regional meets.

    Can anyone out there give me any tips in preparing for my first meet, as well as any advice for the actual day. Thank you in advance

    Moeheep nailed it. Eat plenty of food you know wont upset your stomach, interact with everyone, stay calm with your first attempts, and use plenty of chalk!

    Agree with death lift on the food. I made the mistake of not bringing food and paid for it. Also do t try to cut weight for your first meet. Get a feel for how one works before attempting to cut weight.

    Weight 200 from 210
    Best gym lifts
    Bench 155 -> 270 -> 315
    Squat 175 -> 345 -> 395
    Deadlift 205 -> 410 -> 485
    Overhead press 135 -> 175 -> 205
