    Competitions?


    Ok so my friend has told me that him, and his brothers have gone to weight lifting competitions, and they have all done well. Unfortionally I havn't been able to get ahold of him lately, and im wondering if anybody can fill me in, cuz I really don't know what to search to find anything..
    I want to start lifting for competition..
    Does anybody know anything about this, that they could fill me in on..
    Like maybe a website that could help me find stuff going on in my area or something..?

    I don't know about any competitions going on, but I can tell you that weight lifting and bodybuilding have very different lifting programs. What do your workouts look like? Furthermore, Weight Lifts also differ from Power Lifts. Are you trying to compete in 1RM bench, Deads and Squats? Or 1RM Snatch and Clean & Jerk?

    Um, I guess it would be more Power/Body Building..
    Age 17
    5'9
    150 lbs.
    11% BF (If not less..)

    This is how I normally do it..
    (This is after a warm-up)

    Squat:
    175x10
    190x10
    225x10
    275x10

    Benchpress:
    135x10
    145x10
    155x10
    165x8

    Legpress:
    270x10
    360x10
    450x8

    Unfortionally im not sure where my dead lift is yet, cuz my workout partner, and I havn't done them yet..
    I want to do them, but we just havn't gotten around to it yet..
    I'll give you an estimate though.. (This is what I did last year, and Im stronger now..)

    Deadlift:
    225x10
    275x6
    315x4

    Thats from what I can remember..

    up your weight to the point where you're pushing out 4-6 reps. Everything should look closer to your deadlift scheme. You're current program is primarily hypertrophy based. You should up the weight for greater neural/strength adaption(s). Assuming strength is your primary objective, and I think it would be if you plan on competing in strength competitions.
