Default 7 Weeks Out From Meet - Help!

So I should have been more focused but I just realized I am seven weeks out from my meet in January and so the 9 week powerlifting cycle I was planning on using is now useless to me.

I need some quick advice. This is my first meet so I'm pretty nervous. Do any of you have any seven or less week workouts I could use or just some general advice and how I could train until then. It would be greatly appreciated! Thanks guys.

Meet Goals: 800 total - 300 squat/300 deadlift/200 bench press

I personally would just focus on the big 3 lifts (one per session) with just 1 or 2 accessory lifts per session. If you want to squat 2X per week, choose fronts as an accessory. Choose accessory lifts wisely - ones you are quite sure will address any sticky points or issues with the big 3.

Don't change your rep ranges. Just keep trying to build strength in the 5-10 rep ranges for most compound lifts. Deadlifts you can do 3-5 rep sets, leg press 10-20 rep sets, calves can be high reps too.

Thanks BTB! Looks like I'll get started on that. Hopefully I'll be able to progress enough to meet my goals.
