When will I start doing USAPL meets in powerlifting? Hopefully soon! I’m going to register with them this year…

So some of you may ask, since I’ve gotten myself into powerlifting when will I start doing the USAPL meets?

My powerlifting friends that I go to Albany Strength with are USAPL members. I’ve got to sign up with USAPL pretty soon and I will this year. Probably sometime this Spring. It’s $55 for registration so it’s not that bad.

I would like to start doing local USAPL meets around the Capital Region and I would also like to start doing some national meets too. Before I start thinking about doing the big time national meets, I’m going to wait until I get to the bigger numbers like lift the big three lifts around 600 lbs. – 800 lbs. Sometime I would like to do the national meets so I can start breaking records and all that.

For now, I’m going to stick with doing powerlifting meets at Albany Strength and the YMCA for a while. The YMCA Wilton Branch does powerlifting meets every once in a while so I’m gonna do those too.

I’ll start doing USAPL meets pretty soon it’s just that I don’t want to get too ahead of myself and not rush, ya know? Like I said, I’ll stick with Albany Strength for a long while ’cause doing meets there are such a blast.

I really do love powerlifting and I just found a new passion. I hope to stick with the sport for a long time. Some of you may ask me, “But Kev, you’re too old for powerlifting.” I’m not too old at all. Powerlifting is for everyone of all ages. When you go watch a poewrlifting meet, you’ll see lifters who are 50 years old or older. Age is just a number. If you want to do it then do it. It’s never too late for anything!
