What is a good powerlifting total for a high school meet at 165 class
if that doesnt work, here is last years:
you can call me "ozzie" for short.
At least 700 total
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.
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.
900 is dam good man! Especially with strict judging! I'm right around the same size (much older tho) and I total out around 875....prob closer to 800 with a strict judge! Keep at it bro, you're numbers will be huge in a year or two
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.
