Powerlifting 101:

By Keithpayne
Here's another point made at the last seminar. Let me know what you would add to the list below.
Have you ever shown up at a powerlifting meet only to realize you forgot to bring something you need? It is very common to see a lifter walking around asking his/her fellow lifters if they have an extra singlet or knee wraps on meet day. Many times lifters will show up at weigh-ins without their membership card or paperwork needed for registration. It is very easy to leave home wi...thout things you will need. If you are prone to forgetfulness like I am it may be beneficial to create a Meet Day Checklist.
Below is a partial list of things you may need.
Weightlifting Belt
Deadlifting Socks
Extra Underwear
Change of Clothes
Shoes / Slippers
Spare Shoe Laces
Food / Drink
Wraps / Sleeves (knee / wrist)
Supportive Suits / Shirts
Kilo / Pound Conversion Chart
Rubber Bands
Music / ear phones
Toilet Tissue
I’m sure you can think of things to add to this list.
With travel plans, meal preparation, potential weight cutting, etc. there are a ton of things on your mind just before a meet. Be as prepared as you can be.
Powerlifting 101 articles are focused on primary fundamentals of powerlifting and are designed to help novice lifters. For more Powerlifting 101 articles visit www.
