I am currently 9 weeks out from my first meet and was hoping for some advice as far as my programming.
I have just finished my 4th cycle of 531 N.O.V. and was interested in following 531 for Powerlifting in preparation for my meet. After reading 531 Powerlifting I came up with an 8 week preparation program, referring and following what was written in the book (Switching the weeks around, adding singles, etc…). However, I have an extra week in my schedule and am not sure what I should do with it. I have just come off a deload and was thinking of using this week to just work up to potential openers and then jump into what I have planned.
Is this wise to do? Or should I just keep following my current program and just mix in singles?
Not sure if I am just overthinking this but was hoping for some advice.
