    What does it take to make it in a meet

    I want to compete at 200lbs (5 lbs heavier then my current weight)
    Now my question is what kind of maxes and totals will I be facing in the 22-24 age group

    totally depends on what meet.
    compete to set PRs.
    don't worry about the competition.

    Like said above it all depends where you are and how popular it is there.

    PRs always the goal. Especially when you first get started. IF you happen to be competitive when you first start, lucky you.

    I got real serious about power lifting, trained for almost two years before i am competing my first meet (this summer)

    Tampa fl area
    And as of now
    350 bench
    400 squat and 400 dead lift I was thinking at 1400 total I would enjoy a meet

    Current weight is 200 but could drop 10lbs easy for a weigh in

    You should be competitive. I’m assuming it’s a raw meet? Your bench will help, your deads need to come up some but are in striking range. How tall are you?

    6ft and not raw at the moment but I've only been back in the gym for 3-4 months

    My starting range was
    200 bench.
    225 squat
    185 dead

    After this cycle ends (low dose test cycle) I'm going raw

    Raw refers to not using bench or squat suits to lift. Which when you do is termed “equipt.”
