    Don't get too caught up in the placements. Powerlifting is about competing with yourself and being stronger than you were before. What were your lifts? A 900 total in high school at 165 is certainly nothing to sneeze at.

    Is that a bad thing that I got 900?

    It's not bad. Only way it could be bad is if you didn't try.

    No, that's what I'm saying. It's not bad at all. Especially a 420 deadlift for a young middleweight. You'll make big additions to your total with time. I was a well-developed and experienced lifter when I was in high school, and I've still added ~200lbs to my total since then (I'm 23 now.) Judges are strict, but that's what keeps you honest. How many average gym rats have you seen quarter squatting and trampolining the bar off of their chest on bench?

    It won't take long man. I started with a 1000lb total 2 years ago and have close to 1400 now. Have yet to compete though. Just keep training. Keep on it especially since you're younger..everything will skyrocket.

    Fixed.

    The meets here in TX are always run by the super anal and inconsistent USAPL judges that always waver.

    700 good, 800 damn good, 900!!! heck yeah
    Depending on age too, since that would be a factor as to how much one is still growing.

    As far as using reg standards from comps, I might guess they'd be a bit higher, as some of those more elite lifters are assisted in other ways PEDS etc.
    For a teen using natural strength those are pretty damn good IMO, as it is one thing to do the lifts in a gym atmosphere, but to do all 3 of them under pressure, in a meet and successive, is a bit different too.

    Never competed and all my PR's are in the gym. I try to perform every single lift with solid form, but bottom line is probably every one of those PRs wouldn't hold up in a meet. Too on the edge of my ability, true maxes. Any total you can pull in a meet is gonna be fully within your limits, especially considering you have to muster the energy to do it all in one day. My 1200 personal gym total would probably be 1100 or so in a meet.

    You should be proud man, keep training and don't be scared to compete again! It's only against yourself
