Well weigh-ins are from Friday 3pm-9pm, compete saturday. I would be lifting at 4 or 5pm (depending on if I’m in the 165 or 181 weight class).
I’m weighing myself tomorrow to get an accurate measurement. This meet is for first-time competitors, so I don’t think I’m completely out of my league here.
Anyone have advice in regards to warm-up? I plan on lifting at least 500, so what would one of you guys do if warming up to that? Also, how much time in between attempts do you get? 2 minutes?
I would tell you not to bother trying to cut the weight, but if I was in your position I’d probably end up trying it anyway!!! If I knew I wasn’t going to make it on Thursday night or Friday morning I’d cut my losses there and start the re-feed.
I think in Kilo’s so you’ll have to work it back, but here’s what I’d do… (500lb = 227.5kg)
200kg x1 - opening attempt
215-220kg x1 - second
227.5kg x1 - third
As for time between attempts… depends how many lifters are in the flight. Generally 60-90 seconds per lifter, then you’ve an exta 60 seconds from when you’re called to when you have to start the lift.[/quote]
Alrite, I’ll gauge it off how much I weigh tomorrow. I’m real tempted to attempt to get down to make 165, but I don’t want to compromise my lift.
Thanks for the warm-up suggestion, I may borrow that! Ok, 60-90 secondes is awesome…I was worried that it would be 60 seconds tops (which it still could be). In regards to training, am I better off doing speed pulls with 225 the week before the comp, or just work with 80% of my max?
