Currently 28 years old, 6’2", and 240 pounds.
The last time I competed was at 19 years old, 6’ 2" and 217 pounds
@ 19 I did 1 meet - 512 squat (NASA Texas State Record), 303 bench, 485 dead (missed 512 on my final attempt)
I haven’t competed since then and spent years being lazy and stayed out of the gym. I’ve been back in the gym consistently for a little over a year now and have felt myself getting stronger than I felt then, starting to get the itch again. The overall goal is to go after the current bench and deadlift record in the 242s (Bench-358, Squat-545 Equipped) at the meet in either 7 months or 1 year.
There is a meet coming up in 18 weeks that I’m thinking of getting into just to get my feet wet again. The plan for the December meet is (2) 8 week training cycles with the 8th week of each cycle being the deload week. I guess I’m just looking for training advice on how to plan my workouts for these two training cycles leading up to the December meet, and maybe some ideas of goal weights to set myself up for the record attempts either next March or Next August. Ill be spending the next 2 weeks finding my 3RM in order to have percentages for the (2) 8 week training cycles. I do know one thing that will have to change from what I have been doing is lowering my rep ranges to get used to those smaller, higher weight sets.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
