Wondering when you’ll be ready for your first meet? Maybe you already are. At least that's what Dave Kirschen will tell you.

In another selfie-video from Kirschen himself, the pro powerlifter says that you (yes, you) are ready to compete in your first powerlifting meet right now, whether you feel that way or not. The important thing to remember, according to Kirschen, is that the gym is where you get stronger, but the platform is where you become a powerlifter.This isn't the first video from Kirschen this month. He covered a volatile raw vs equipped powerlifting debate several weeks ago, and then posted an adrenaline-packed action video last week, rounding out back-to-back-to-back weeks of powerlifting knowledge.
