Then do you powerlifts, squat every day except deadlift day, alternate bench and press (with an easier press day after the heavier bench day), alt. rows and deadlifts, something like that.

Good luck, buddy! Ryano is right, though, in that coaching is probably the best way to go, but if that's not possible, you can still learn a lot on your own. Just don't sacrifice form for weight for quite a while. I made that mistake and had to start over. Don't waste that time, be precise from the start and grow slow at first. My.02
thanks a lot mike! and good luck on saturday!!
