  1. Mullet's First Meet (Maybe)


    There is a meet coming up where I have just moved and I am thinking about entering on the advice of an IPF Pro bencher that I have met. Seems like it could be a good time, one of the trainers at the Y is a competing PL'er as well and may have a suit that can fit me. If I decide to go for it my training will probably alter ALOT, as I have not been training singles or bandwork or anything like that. Anyway the meet is called the Niagara Open I believe and it is in Janurary. If I can figure out a suit good enough by then I plan to pull a 585+, no ideas yet on my pushes...Wish me luck.


  2. Good luck! What will you be entered in? Just deadlift or main 3 total?

  3. I think I will go for the full Push/Pull, I may as well. I will be competing at 200 probably, though if this meet goes well I might try and cut to 180 and retain strength.

  7. If you do this Mullet can you video tape yourself? If so that would be kick azz to throw the video up on here.. Jayhawkk votes for the deadlift video? Hmm wonder why?

  8. Good luck BTW if you do it

  9. Good luck with that. And a video would be cool if you could get that

    definately do it man, you will have a blast and will be hooked. you're life will never be the same again

    and yes, you're training will differ A LOT but for the better. and if i were you i would cruise at 200 eating clean and getting stronger, when meet time comes around just cut back carbs and weigh in at 198. no need to drop all the way down to 180, you'll be in the same weight class and you're strength will suffer too much dropping that much weight in only a couple months.

  11. Thumbs up


    Good luck! I see your allready making friends in STC

  12. Do suits help at all in deadlifting? Good luck, what bench are you shooting for?

  13. I wish you nothing but the best bro!! I know the type of person you are, and if you have a set goal in mind, I know that you'll achieve it.

    actaully depends on the person, some people it helps, some people it hurts. you only get like 50lbs out of one though, they dont help as much as squat suits and bench shirts.

  15. Good luck and if you plan on doing another meet i suggest you do some test+Tren

    pretty much the only thing you'll actually get gains from

  17. Yeah, CHAPS I think that wonderful combo will be my next cycle, with maybe my ol' buddy Super at the front. To the bench question, I am really not sure, benching just isn't my forte. I will do the whole meet basically for experience.

    And thanks Idunk!

  18. Close grip bench press, floor presses, Dips, tate presses, standing military presses, will all increase your bench. Personally i don't do bench press anymore i prefer dumbbells, but i DO love to squat and deadlift.

  19. just a little fyi for ya mullet:

    superdrol = bad back pumps = a powerlifters worst nightmare

  20. Does this mean you want those sexy pink leotards back?

    Good luck bro.

  21. First meets are the best man. If you need some help planning anything out let me know. And let me know how that shirt fits bc i bet i can tell you some alterations to make to it that'll make a world of difference

  22. Hey bro, best of luck. One question though, is the meet in St Catharines and are you now in my province without even telling me

    jecko

  23. Haha.

    BP-No

    Animal-Thanks man, I'll keep that in mind.

    Jecko-LOL..Sorry man, I totally spaced, I am currently in St.Kitts yeah

    Kop-I actually never recieved any back pumps from Super, even going upto 30mg

  24. How far out from the meet date are you? If your only a couple months out don't concentrate on gaining strength at this point, you need to hone your form! Good PL form on the bench can add 50lbs+, Are you going to be using a DL suit or a Squat suit for the DL? Some PLers wear a squat suit backwards, personnally I like wearing a loose squat suit (training tight) it just makes me feel tight during the lift. A properly fitting squat suit is almost impossible to get my hands on the bar and my arse down at the same time.

  25. Well the guy who is giving it to me is sponsored so he has tons of gear of laying around. Anyway, he'll be giving me a Dead suit, and letting me use a smaller squat suit to wear. He is a little larger than me so the Dead suit will fit a little looser. I believe he said it was Titan, but I'm not sure

  26. Does Halotestin give you back pumps?

    Nice bro, I take it you're at Brock then eh? Good school, a bunch of my buddies played Varsity hockey there, of course that was 10 years ago

    interesting, i could barely bend over to pick the bar up when doing deads.

    and what does your routine look like for the meet?

    Titan? that's probably the worst choice for a first suit IMO, anyway prepare yourself for a lot of pain getting that SOB on, hopefully you'll have help, even if it's what Titan would consider loose it will be painful. I love their shirts but they can keep the suits! I'd rather give up 10lbs and where an old school Inzer then put up with the pain and agony of doning the suit.
