In the past I'd take the week off leading into a meet, focus on hydration nutrition rest.
This time around, I was on vacation and had closer to two weeks off. Not that I can do anything about it now, but would you expect decreased performance at the meet relative to the standard 1 week?
I'm doing this one for fun, testing my maxes at a soft 10 - 15 lbs overweight so there's no real pressure. Just curious what you guys think about rest periods.
