Strong.

that seems a tough situation to be in regards to weight class, no doubt you would be really competitive in the 90's but still within a shout in the 100's.

First competition? you could be in a shout to qualify for nationals soon.
Getting down to 90kg isn't difficult in and of its self, obviously maintaining/increasing strength while doing so is where it becomes tricky and perhaps a tad optimistic, will be a nice challenge though.

It's a 24hour weigh in, so if I can get down to about 92 I should be able to cut a bit of water and make weight.

First comp, yeah. Qualifying total for 90kg is 570 and for 100kg it's 597.5kg, so should qualify if I hit what I can hit in the gym, which is easier said than done.

good luck, staying in your current weight class may be the safest option but that would just be me, either way I think you will qualify

The only fed for me.

The qualifying totals for that are pretty high aren't they? A lot higher than BPU. The BPU totals seem really low, although I suppose not that many people compete in powerlifting anyway, and most of them rightly or wrongly compete in the more "prestigious" tested feds, so they can't be too fussy.

Yea, gbpf senior u83kg qualifying total is only 512.5kg.

Scooby snacks help though with your higher totals...

Same as BPU (BPU is 512.5kg for u82.5kg). That's what I mean by BPU totals seem low, to say it's untested, they're the same if not lower than GBPF.

Yea, you're right that is low.

Maybe they just made the totals similar on purpose?

Perhaps, although when you get up to higher weight classes GBPF has higher totals.
For example:
GBPF 105kg is 715kg total
BPU 110kg is 585kg

DA***!

Maybe it's a case of lots more people compete in the GBPF and so they can have higher totals while maintaining a reasonable sized field at nationals, where as the BPU has far fewer entrants (that are then split up into raw/wraps/equipped) and so needs low totals to ensure enough people qualify and pad it out? Wouldn't be very good if you ended up with weight classes of 1-2 people at your feds national meet and it was over in a few hours.

27th January 2015

Squats -
60kg X 5
82kg X 5
105kg X 5
125kg X 5
145kg X 5
165kg X 5
180kg X 1
200kg X 1
180kg X 5

Bench -
60kg X 5
72kg X 5
87.5kg X 5
100kg X 5
115kg X 5

Bench felt awful. First time benching in 2-3 weeks as I've had tendonitis, lost the groove a little bit. Also first time benching at new gym, different rack/bar/bench, felt weird.


Update:
Started meet prep yesterday for meet on April 19th. Weighed in yesterday at 102.9kg, aiming to compete at 90kg as I'll be very competitive, (assuming my lifts don't go to ****). Carrying a little bloat/excess water atm from some additional supplementation, plus it's a 24hour weigh in so I can water cut, so I figure that takes care of the 3kg, leaving 10kg to lose in 12 weeks. Ideally I want to lose that with two weeks to go so that I can cruise in at maintenance or so. I'll know if I'm on track to make weight with plenty of time to spare, worst case scenario I compete at 100kg and gain a little weight in the month running up to the meet.

Decided I'm just going to run a customised Madcows for 8weeks as it's simple and I can manage workouts on reduced calories, then Sheiko#32 in the 4weeks running up to meet day as a deload/mini peak.

Taking the barbell rows out on squat/bench day and moving them to a 4th day, as squatting for reps gives me crazy back pumps.

Plus taking out squats on deadlift day to save energy/my knees/my hips

Will simply be

Squat and bench

Deadlift and OHP

Squat and bench

Rows and assorted accessories.

Simples.
