    Bench Press Meet Warmup Question


    I have my first powerlifting meet Feb. 21st and am having some confusion about proper warmup for the bench. How many warmup sets do most people normally do and with what percentages of the opening weight. I don't want to do to much and waste energy but I also want to be ready for the feel of the weight.

    I'd try to warm up pretty close to how you do in training. You want things to feel as close to "normal" as possible on meet day, except stronger LOL.

    On bench days I typically do 185 15-20 times until I feel a nice loosening feeling in my chest. Just one set normally does me right.
