I like it when things just sneak up on you, it will be my first contest so my question is how to determine openers? It’s a BP/DL contest and since I have to wear a singlet I will be doing both (since I am buying a singlet I want to be seen in it as much as possible). SHould an opener be something I triple with (so as to be certain to get on the board) or should I try to bang out a lower end single in the 95%+ range?
I certainly don’t want to bomb, but I also want a shot at a nice total (so I can jump up and down in the singlet all happy and stuff). I just hit 425 for a triple on bench (paused each one) and 455 for 5 (had more in the tank) on DL, should I try to figure out a true 1 rm or is there not enough time to work that into a 24 day peaking cycle (I just found out about the show today). Tips and strategies are welcome and appreciated,because I am clueless.
