Chris, I take it you've started to use fractional plates? Or do you have them available to you? 1/4 lb, 1/2 lb, 3/4 lb and 1 lb plates.?

I forgot, yes my Bench Press is paused (around 2 seconds, LONG pause).
Do you train your bench press with paused ? Because, paused compared to non-paused there is a world of difference (especially with the IPF where the pause is long, and sometimes REALLY long, depends on judges as you already know... )
I'm about 10KM away from the gym. Not really far but I hope it won't rain because I must do it at feet ...

In the CPU, in the 110kg class, you'd need to make a total of 475kg to be a level IV lifter and qualify for the next competition level: regional, provincial-national-worlds. Competitive power lifting isn't really about beating the next guy, it's about beating totals: becoming elite within your weight class, best lifter based on Wilks totals, and breaking standing records.
A deadlift is a deadlift, pick it up and lock it out, conventional or sumo, it's all good (not sure what you mean about a "power lifting deadlift").
A full meet is bench, squat and DL, there are also bench meets and push- pulls. There are rules for each lift and commands that must be followed in order for the lift to count.
