I would ask Al Caslow on Elite.
He trains on a modified sheiko.
In general though I don't think thats the best way to go in gear.
Just work the suit once a week the whole 9 weeks. If it is tight enough it should take some weight to hit depth.
I would not do whatever you suggested.
I would try a westside style program for geared lifting.
I definitely wouldn't switch back and forth leading up to a meet. Learn your gear. Train consistent. Go to the meet.
