Set for first meet!

I'm locked in for my first PL meet, Feb. 27 in Daytona. I've read, and re-reading the first meet thread stickied on this site. Great resource. Meet checklist alone would've been worth it. Hoping for 198 class, but not working for it. If I'm there, fine. If I'm lifting in the 220 at 203,...

Advice on squat progression with weaker core

Hi all, I'm working through a strength program now and am wondering what to do at the end of it. I got into wearing a belt for squats over 200 lbs (as I was injured in the past, and safety first and all that), and am wonder if that's normal. I can definitely get off a few sets without wearing the...

Deadlift Programming

Hey guys, just want to hear some thoughts from you My squat program is Ed Coan's 12 week and for my bench is Smolov Jr. Is it fine to use Ed coan's 12 week for deadlift or it may be very taxing ? what I noticed on powerlifting programs, heavy deadlifts are only done occasionally.
