without a meet to take into consideration, itís much tougher to make the right call. Incidentally, in my experience, most non-competitive lifters will make the mistake of going all-out too often, leading to stagnation and injury.

Competitive lifters, on the other hand, tend to make much more progress year in and year out, because they not only know what they are doing, but why they are doing it. Elite and pro lifters know when to toe the line, and when to take a step back.
I agree with this moreso than anything else posted in theis thread. When I have something to train towards, my training is a ton better. I have been in a training slump/fog for about 7 months now for a lot of reasons. The most direct reason is that I dont have a meet/competition to train for directly.
