I just decided to enter a push-pull meet for December 3rd. One of my shoulders is jacked, so I'm just going to pull.
I just came out of about a month of light cleans and snatches, rehabbing my low back from a sprain. For the past month or so, I've been just pulling once a week, one heavy set of five (after warmups.) I've been jumping 10 to 20 pounds per week, and the last set was 385 for 5. I had a deload week on most of my lifts and pulled some singles this past Friday... got up to 425, a PR of 20 pounds, with some left in the tank... maybe 20 or 30 more pounds.
The owner of the gym where I train watched me pull singles and feels confident that I can get 500 in the meet.
So, I've never prepped for a meet/a peak with deadlifts. Here's what I'm thinking for the next 3 weeks:
Tuesday: 12 singles, all light and for speed, in my belt. Probably just a bit over 50% of my max.
Thursday 3, 3, 2, 2, 3
Thursday weight targets will be:
Does anyone here, who has experience prepping for a peak, have any thoughts on this plan/criticism?
