My Next Competition

You may have noticed my competition countdown on the homepage of my website, if not let me explain…

I was super excited to see a local gym and buddy of mine throw a powerlifting meet for his gym. I love competing and having a date on the calendar to get ready for. I also enjoy supporting local fitness businesses and other gyms.

I have decided to compete in a push / pull powerlifting meet on June 1st. I have been prepping for about 2 weeks already. A push / pull meet is a powerlifting meet where only the bench press and deadlift will be performed. The best lifter in each weight class will be the winner, most meets have an overall best lifter which is the strongest pound for pound lifter. I am sitting around 151-153lbs so I am going to try making the 148lb weight class for meet day.

I will be breaking down strength content pretty heavily this month. Especially for the deadlift and bench because of the meet.

I am super excited to compete! If you are in the area, check out the meet! You can find more info on Alpha’s gym page.

Hope everyone has a great Monday!
