Hey guys, first time poster but follower of the website. I have my 2nd meet coming up on Jan 25th in Albany, NY and I have a few questions. I did a meet about a year and a half ago and I did pretty well for my first time (all raw): 380 squat, 275 bench, 480 deadlift. I am having trouble recalling exactly how I trained the week before the meet so I am posting here for some advice. The meet is on a Sunday and I usually deadlift on Saturdays, bench Monday’s, and squat on Tuesday.
So the week before the meet I am just going to do light bench on Monday but I have some questions on the deadlift/squat training. Do you guys think I should DL/squat this saturday which is the 17th? I use to do both in the same day and do heavy but I cut it out a few weeks back so it wouldn’t be new to me to train them heavy on the same day. I am just skeptical as to whether I should skip them (or just do light work) or actually hit them hard as I will have 8 days before the meet. What do you guys think.
