What’s up guys! So I’m 3 weeks out from my first meet and I’d like some ramping up/down advice. I haven’t been consistent at the gym, but I’d like to improve as much as possible the next 3 weeks and I can dedicate the time, so I’d like some help. If I had to compete tomorrow, in the 165lb. class (I’m 6’1) I could squat 275, bench 215 and deadlift 365- those numbers wouldn’t change even with a few months off.
My plan- next week: load on creatine and somehow not gain any weight (ahh!) train to those numbers (275, 215, 365lbs.)
2 weeks till: try for 300 squat (which I’ve hit before), 225 bench (which i’ve easily done b4) and 405 deadlift (which I’ve hit before). If I hit them, go till I fail.
1 week out: 5x5 exercises.
Sorry to admit, I usually use a pussy pad (7% body fat doesn’t exactly cushion). I’m thinking to wean myself off it only when doing 1 rep weight.
I also use gloves on deadlift (SORRY, shut up), so I’m thinking to substitute chalk on the 1 rep weight as well.
