This was my first powerlifting meet. Coach Britt encouraged me to sign up and my competitive nature also kicked in.
In preparation, I concentrated my workouts on the three lifts, bench press, deadlift & back squat, also training at the RACC when not at FF.
I started really training for this meet in December, I hit a few bumps in the road and could have used a few extra months. The overall experience of the meet was very enjoyable and a great learning experience. Everyone was so encouraging and kind.
I will absolutely do it again. I already have my goals set for the next meet. I will push myself much harder, I am very competitive and want to do much better.
Advice to others: Try it at least once, it’s not for everyone but you don’t want to always wonder what if. As for words of wisdom, I would say trust yourself and really push yourself to get to the next level. Also, PRACTICE THE COMMANDS over and over. I could have done much better if I would have listened to the judge!
