    Looks like I am going to do a small competition at the beginning of Febuary sanctioned by the ipf.
    I have been on the website for the local competition and there is not many details as to what I will need other than a membership to the federation and competition dues.
    As far as equipment, I don't have any wraps, special shirts or suits etc... is it frowned upon if I show up with my normal shorts, t-shirt and nike shoes? I notice the pictures on the site show most lifters in power lifting equipment and either special shoes or chucks.
    A friend of mine at the gym just starting competing as a junior and mentioned I should come out to support the local lifters - he doesn't know much about the requirements as he is supplied all the equipment by his father.

    I am going to buy a belt this weekend as I figure its probably going to help me with my squat and my deadlift.

    I will keep browsing the actual website for info, but I appreciate any info from anyone here who has competed!

    Also, apparantly there are urine tests, and recently I have taken a caffeine pill and ephedrine before my cardio sessions - is this going to be a problem?

    Found the ipf rule book, looks like you're right. Wonder where I can get one locally? How much should I expect to pay?

    You also need IPF approved socks.

    Can I wear my usual gym runners?

    I know a lot of people take this sport very seriously, so I don't want to show up like a complete yutz; however, at the same time I am not sure if I want to invest in all the gear and find I don't like competing.

    No specialty equipment all you need is a singlet and athletic shoes. You also need knee high socks for the deadlift and you can not wear any shirts with profanity.
    If you take allot of caffeine it could be, there is an amount in the WADA handbook. So, don't drink six redbulls before you deadlift.

    Thanks for the info... can I wear any high socks? Like my rugby socks etc?


    I don't take caffeine or ephedrine often, and I don't plan on taking it the day of the lift, I was more concerned with the days prior to the lift.

    Yes, any high socks work, yeah, you are not gonna have to worry about the caffeine and ephedrine, they all get out of your system in a few hours.

    You will also need an IPF approved condom so the ref can hold your dick while you take the piss test.

    For usapl the rules on shirts are they need to be blank and you can't flip them inside out. Team shirts are ok as long as they are registered with the usapl. Singlets and knee high socks are the only required things. Oh and briefs but nobody really cares about that unless they are a dick. I do rock briefs so my boxers don't bind up in my squat suit though.

    IPF rules should be similar. fatdude pretty much hit the nail on the head though.

    they dont test everyone do they? id figure at local meets theyd just test people who did really well or broke some records. i dont think theyd waste the time on some dude trolling in there raw "whats going on guys?"

    if you stay consistent with the machines you can work up to doing a full sleeve at the next meet - strike fear in the hearts of your opponents

    they will test people they "think" might be on, they will randomly pull out attempt cards and test, and they will usually test if you set a record.
