    This right here says youíve never attended a local level non-tested powerlifting meet. I specifically say non-tested because even though over half the people competing are natty, everyone is way friendlier than at the ipf/usapl meets. Everyone has a chip on their shoulder there for some reason.

    ANYWAY....
    Everyone fits in in powerlifting. Literally everyone. Iíve watched people from 8-80 compete and everyone screams just as loud for a PR.

    Do
    a
    meet

    even if its one one of those bets push-pull meets
    it WILL change your outlook on training.

    For years I havent been able to get under a squat bar is the reason I say that. Im working on it though. I think I'd probably do ok in my weight class.

    Shoulder issues? Your hands can go all the way out, just don’t touch the plates. Push-pull at a sanctioned full-power meet is an option too, still gets you the atmosphere. It’s really something you have to experience.

    Hire a competent coach - this alone will address all of the valid "uncertainty" and "confusion" you may have. Secondary to this, I'd suggest keeping things simple and treating it as a learning experience. No complex peaking protocol, no exotic drugs you've never used before, no ridiculous doses that you've never used before, etc, etc.

    Don't be going sideways on me here but I have a question for all you PLers. Why do all PLers give the advice to go into a meet when they know someone has little to no chance to place but you think you need be Mr. O ready for your first show? There's more to be learned from your first show then your first meet.

    My response was based on him dealing with some life changes and to some degree still battling an addiction.
