First Powerlifting Competition Prep

Hi, English is my second language so sorry for any mistakes.

I’m preparing for my first powerlifting contast for the first time and I’m doing the the old 5 of 5 : squats,deadlift and bench 3 times a week. Any ideas about good hardcore training pragrams that would help me increase my weights.

The only problem is that I’m joining for under 80kg’s and can’t go over but trying to improve my weights on the same weight. I heard that there are much more better training programs that would prepare for a contasts, any links or ideas plz.

Squats: 130 kg’s
Deadlift: 180 kg’s
Bench:120 k’gs
