    What are you doing now?

    What you want to do is set yourself up to peak at the right time. Many lifters do this by starting out with say, sets of 5's, adding 10lbs each week, and dropping reps so you hit a top (but not max) single at the end. The last workout before the meet (usually about a week away) you do your projected opening weight and then rest up.

    Something like this:
    wk 1,2,3- 2 sets of 5
    wk 3,4,5- 2 sets of 3
    wk 5,6 - 2 sets of 2
    wk 7- 2 singles
    wk 8- opener and then rest

    I was wondering the same thing about the meets.

    When is the last time I should work out before a meet?

    Should it be hard? OR go light and work on form?

    What is your dream? What have you done today to get closer to reaching that dream?

    Have fun with whatever you are doing. Otherwise, what is the point of doing it?

    Also, make sure you know the rules and train accordingly.

    If there is a competition pause it will effect your #'s. I've seen people bomb out their openers because they couldn't hit them with a competition pause.

    And, on sanctioned benching there is a press, and rack command. Have your spotter do these commands for you. You wouldn't believe how easy it is to slam the bar back before the rack command just because that's what you've always done in the gym. Once again, that means red lights and can cause an otherwise good lift to not be counted.
