Fancy a PL comp, Nic? Is that your plan?

I don't look at it in a xBW sense (though it is relevant), as it's not linear when comparing bodyweights and so isn't always clear. What I DO look at is how it compares to the world/british competition results and your deadlift is very very good.

Lots and lots of blokes, even big ones, cannot deadlift 140kg.

Thanks chaps!

I'm thinking of doing a deadlift only at a full power meet - there's one on Saturday week (BDFPA). I'm a bit unsure, mainly I think because I just don't know what's involved or what to do/expect. I shall probably go along and just give it a go anyway Smiley

I don't have a belt or know what shoes to wear LOL :-/

I'm not sure but rules may state you have to wear a singlet/unitard over a t-shirt too.

The thing that puts me off is that you can't compete without paying a big 40 odd quid membership fee. Sometimes I just want to have a go without forking out so much. 40 isn't bad but if you do loads of sports and just want a one off for fun it's very steep.

Yup, it can get pricey. I guess I've never minded too much because it's really my only indulgence (I don't smoke, rarely go out, and knocked the Bollinger habit on the head some time ago Wink ) Also because I don't begrudge spending money on supporting the grassroots of sport. That's why I still join the BB feds even if I don't end up competing with them that year.

At the end of the day it's a choice innit. And 25 or so to lift a bar up once or twice pales into insignificance when I think about the per-Swarovski cost of BB bikinis (or the per-stroke cost of swimming the Channel!)
