Hey all. I’d love if you could share an opinion on structuring an off season and meet training.
I usually compete bench-only every 6 months.
I’m thinking of running 5’s Pro with SSL for 3 cycles as an off season, then prepare for the meet using the strength challenge from Beyond 531.
I usually calculate a training max from my meet 1rm. I like my training max to be 90% of the 1rm during the meet prep period, and after a meet I deload to 90% of that training max and work back up again.
My old approach has been to work heavy singles and a fairly high intensity throughout the training year, but I’m starting to go backwards a little and think that a true off-season period would do me some good.
I’m wavering between classic top set AMRAP and the 5s Pro. I’m thinking that ssl is a good choice for supplemental, esp with the deloading of the training max post meet.
