    1st full meet...Food?


    I will be doing my first full meet this Saturday. What seems to work for most of you when you go to full meets in terms of what kinds of food to bring? I dont really like lifting with food in my stomach but with 7-9 max attempt lifts I assume ill be needing somthing to eat and fuel me all day as I dont believe that just a big breakfast will cut it?

    So what does your typical food plan look like on meet day?

    i do, not the usual pre-wo dosages though as it wouldnt last. Just enough to get a slight edge and let adrenaline take me the rest of the way, I just dose before each warmup.

    Lots of fluids and foods that are easy on the stomach. Don't eat anything new on meet day. Stick with foods that you are used to eating.

    nice man good job. I went 7/9. Ended up losing 10 lbs and getting a little sick because of it. Was not feeling 100%. Had a nasty headache and stomach cramps throughout the day.
    Got a 501 deadlift though. 27 lb pr.

    thought I'd share my meet results too. got a 560 squat, 358 bench and 589 dl, all PRs, at the 2009 APF IL Raw Power Challenge. Ultimate goal is to hopefully achieve Master level (1700+) raw, before going equipped.


    Oh, and one food I forgot to mention, ATJ protein recovery balls....
