Hi, after people's thoughts on this:
Considering entering first comp in 4 weeks (late decision, didn't realise I would be eligible to compete). Squatted 235kg (shoes, wraps and belt) in the gym the other day, deadlifted 230kg in chucks (just chalk) and have been benching 125kg for sets of 3.
I am planning on opening with 210kg squat (then 235, 240), 127.5kg bench (then 135, 140) and 220kg deadlift (then 230, 240).
Am I right in 'guaranteeing' myself my first attempt, aiming for training max on number 2 and then budging up on no3?
Also, I am having to make a last minute change to my program (on Smolov Jr Bench at present!) to fit, considering 5/3/1 for 2.5 weeks (just missing deadlift 5/5/5+), 1 week resting (practice with 60kg for form) and then compete.
Any help greatly received - not wanting to go in an win, just want the experience, but would like to come away with a ratified total to my name.
