I second the calls to get your ass on a platform and compete.

Don't worry about whether or not your numbers are competitive or not just find a club and someone who'll coach you in your first comp and get going. No one in the sport cares what you lift first time out, all they care is that you are interested enough to have a go.

For weightlifting the rules say that you need a once piece suit that leaves your knees and elbows exposed but at smaller club comps first time lifters will often get away with wearing shorts and a T shirt that fit the same criteria
