So what your schedule looks like working back from the comp week:
1 - Comp week
2 - ??? ( What to do this week? )
3 - Deload (questioned week)
4 - 5x3x1
5 - 3x3x3
6 - 5x5x5
7 - (Current week / deload phase)
In the book, on page 49, Jim says you can have one, two, or even three deload weeks before a competition. Though he recommends one. He also states (and i know of a lot of power lifters that agree) that the week leading up to the comp you should do nothing. Maybe minimal maintenance, but dont try any new movement or stretch or anything you are unfamiliar with. It is too close to competition to experiment. So what i would recommend would be this:
1 - Comp Week (Set Records)
2 - Do nothing. Get your mind right. Recover to as close to 100% as possible.
3 - Deload. Begin Recovery. Start Getting your mind right.
4 - 5x3x1. Push it and get confident in your openers and your predicted max.
5 - 3x3x3. (If you want, you can hit the final set of 3 for just 3, then work up to heavy single. 92.5% (opener) of predicted max for 1, then 95% (lift 2) of predicted max (comp. goal weight) for 1)
6 - 5x5x5
7 - Deload (current week)
