Hello, im an 18 years old powerlifter who is getting prepared for his first meet , im in the 198 lbs class.
I just went down from 205lbs to 198lbs in a week, today i went to do a 5x5 bench press of 90kg weight only and it wasnt that easy idk why , i smashed 125kg as a 1rm and did 110kg x 5 too on thursday, i know that i shouldnt have gone to the gym and do 5x5 bench , i really regret it and afraid that it would affect my performance as my meet is on thursday, 7th of april.
The weigh ins is about 24 hours before the meet and i need advices on what to eat before the weigh ins, what to do and the exact same thing after the weigh ins on wednesday and in the meet day, I dont have a coach which sucks because there isnt alot of powerlifters where i live , the closet powerlifting gym is about 2 hours away.
So, i need advices on everything i mentioned if possible,before and after the weigh ins and btw what do you think of 230kg deadlift and 125kg bench press? for a 90kg, im feeling down tbh i thought i would smoke the 90kg 5x5 bench press like nothing today ! thanks for help
