WEEK 11 DAY 2 MOCK MEET

Goal today was to bury all squats, nail my opening lifts, and practice commands. Today was not the time to set PR's, as I am not going to get any stronger before the meet. Mission accomplished. Eleven weeks of heavy lifting has given me the tools to succeed at the meet. I am healthy, both mentally & physically, and loaded with more confidence than I could ever hope for. When I first joined the forum just under 3 years ago, I never imagined it would lead to this. I am so very fortunate to be able to compete.

Squats
All Singles:
135
155
185
225
255
285
315
335
350
365
365
385

Bench Press
All were paused. Once again, all singles. At the meet, I may have to pause a second longer, but no problemo.
155
175
195
205
225
240
255
250

Deadlift
All raw singles
225
275
335
385
405
425

Based upon this and my previous lifting, LtL and I have decided my opening numbers will be:

Squat: 365
Bench: 250
Deadlift: 425

After these lifts are nailed, 2nd lifts will be:
Squat: 390
Bench: 260
Deadlift: 440

And finally, after those are nailed, third lifts will be:
Squat: 405
Bench: 270
Deadlift: 455

Total: 1130

First lifts are written in stone. If I am having a particularly strong day, I think I am allowed to change my second and third lifts. However, It is probably best if I stick to this plan. I would be extremely happy with these numbers, especially for a geezer at his first meet. Just getting on the platform before I lift anything is a big accomplishment for me. It's going to be one of the biggest days of my life.

Everything will be a PR, since I will be at an official judged meet.
