I would take pretty safe 1st and 2nd attempts on everything. I personally dont go for a weight I have not done in the gym until my 3rd attempts. Sometimes I will even take a weight I have done in the gym as a third, because lets be honest.......its a different world! I have seen guys totals drop 100lbs from what they could hit in the gym.


Another thing to keep in mind, I also look at my opening attempt as my last warm up. I am normally 100lbs away from where I want to end up on my 3rd. I think of the 1st attempt as a lift that should allow me 2 more attempts in that lift.
