Default What do you do to prep???

I have heard a ton of different ways to wind down to a meet, 14 days out for DL, 12 for squat 10 for bench, then others. One of them was last bench day before the meet was 1xopener 4 days before meet. what would you guys recomend, my last one I did was 16 days out on dl, cause I thought I could do it 9 days out, and a buddy said dont. Squat was 11 days and bench was 7, i felt fine, but like all of you, i want to be better.

what you think.

My FORMER conditioning "coach" had my DL only 2 days (2 DAYS!!!!) before a contest, and sure enough I was rushed to the hospital with a career ending injury from that same contest...

Guess my only advice (I used to have some credibility with heavier lifts, one being a 705lb pull for ONE sloppy ass rep) is to NOT pull within the 2 days prior haha...

And dude you're a damn ox. FYI. Damn ox.

I take my last deadlift anywhere from 18-22 days out.

Last squat is usually 8-12 days out.
Last bench usually 7-10 days out.

then coast into the meet.

I usually do some light stuff for the rotator cuff/shoulder to keep that area all nice, and do a lot of stretching and prehab.

granted everyone is different, but I've started finding as my weights go up that the longer I take to rest between my last lifting days and the meet the better.

Default For Raw Prep, Geared lifting I think taxes the CNS more

I used to take 10 days off everything completely but found out its often better stay in the 70% or lower range(lower suggested) 7 days before the meet for Squats/Deadlifts & 3-4days for the Bench press. I don't like to do assistance exercises during this time, I rather just perfect form/set up/routine for the meet.

1month before the meet,I max out or take 90-100+% or (somewhere between your 2nd & 3rd attempt) for the squat & deadlift & for the Bench about 15 days out.

Then in the remaining weeks for:

Squats/Deadlifts I would work to :

2nd attempts, 3 weeks from the meet.

openers(1st attempts) 2 weeks from the meet.

then 70% or less 10days from the meet.

For Bench I would:

Do 2nd attempts 11 days before.

Openers 7days before.

50% paused bench 4 days before.

This is more or less what has worked for me, everyone is different though.
