    Would these lifts be competitive at a powerlifting meet(Raw)


    I am currently 228 lbs, looking to possibly do a power meet in May. So I have about 3 months to prepare still. My raw deadlift is 600 lbs, squat probably around 550 (w/out knee wraps) and bench press at 420. So I suppose around a 1500-1600 lb total. Is this a decent total for a raw lifter at an amateur meet? I have no idea, I've done bodybuilding contests for the past 10 yrs, powerlifting is totally new to me. Also, I enjoy training heavy but the whole Westside style of training is boring to me. I still train with reps, but what I'm doing different now is beginning my workout with either bench, squat or deadlift, and working in a rep range of 5-8. As the show gets closer I will do sets of 3-5 probably. My bodyfat is single digit still, I still perform cardio 3x/wk. Would like to stay under 10% bf really, just bored with bodybuilding lately

    yeah id say ur numbers are great, the only way i see u getting jerked around is if they judge dividing ur BW into each lift. In thst case a guy who is even 10-20lbs lighter because his physique isnt loaded with aesthetic mass could be as strong or stronger. Id say **** it and dive in U'll do well 3 weeks before the comp see if u can dry out without losing strength. maintain and then carb up with yams and get ur water back on after weigh ins. (glyco maize or glycobol would b a good product for manipulating weight gains)
