Powerlifting Questions

Posted by: Ben

I''ve decided to pursue an amateur powerlifting meet that is many, many months away, just for fun. Since I've never trained for powerlifting in particular (always athletics), I've decided to follow the beginner's program. I am familiar with all the exercises and feel that that program will work well for me.

Two questions though:

1) How long of rest periods between the sets? I am used to keeping a quick pace in the weight room in order to derive some metabolic benefit for athletics, but because this is powerlifting I realize that the longer rest is better for strength. On the other hand, I don''t have tons of time to workout (about a hour on the workout days). I was thinking of using 3 min. on the squats and deadlifts, and 2 min. on the smaller exercises. Do you think this is enough rest or should I go to something like 4 min. and 3 min.?

2) By "sit-ups" I assume you mean full on, old-school sit-ups and not namby pamby crunches... If so, I don''t have a partner to hold my feet down, so should I try to find something to hook my feet under, or do leg raises / roman chairs instead?

Your insight is much appreciated!
