My last meet was on a Sunday.
W/O partner was competing in the same meet.
We had a "Mock Meet" the Tuesday before....we did our openers for a double each. Just like a meet, we would call the others name, set a timer for 1 minute. Have the other give the commands and judge.
Then on Thursday, I did 1 x 5 squat @ 135 lbs, 1 x 5 bench @ 135 lbs, and a 1 x 5 dead @ 225 lbs. A few OHP and that was it.
Having said all that, I was pretty conservative at my first meet, and the squat being first, I was REALLY nervous, but after the first lift...the entire meet went by WAY TO FAST!
Dont worry, the adrenaline will make you do some amazing things.....

The iron is there during my times of happiness, sadness and anger. The iron is there available through the 4 seasons and inclement weather. The iron is there to either comfort me or motivate me. The Iron manages to show me how strong I am or how humble I need to be. The iron does not yell, but it always demands respect. The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.
