    Candito for powerlifting prep meet question.

    I am 9 weeks out from my first powerlifting competition and I was planning to use Candito's 6 week strength program to prep
    but I got a question...
    on the 6th week of canditos.. it says either you deload or find your new 1RM.
    should I use the the 6th week for the competition ?
    or deload on the 6th week and compete on the 7th week.

    and another question.
    should the singlet be really tight, snug or a little loose ?

    thanks

    meets typically land on saturdays so use the 6th week (the week of the meet) to deload and recover in order to utilize your peaked strength the program was designed to develop. I ran this before my last meet in case you were wondering so I'm not just guessing.

    id go snug, too tight will be uncomfortable and not be fun to wear while lifting but honestly its personal preference and the material of the singlet makes a difference. the inner singlets for example aren't as elastic and aren't comfortable when they are too tight, this might not be the case with the more elastic material.

    hope this helps.

    Good point, thanks.

    What does the deload looks like before a meet?
    do you do light sets and lot of stretchings ?
    or you go on a full rest without doing activities

    Say the meet is on Saturday. Try working up to your openers on Monday, and then do like 50% on Wednesday for a couple of very low rep sets, then rest until the game day.

    Monday, openers for the 3 lifts on the same day?

    and what openers do you mean ? just the first attempt open lift ?

    Thank you

    IMO keep things as light and easy as possible that week. Do some easy sets to get warmed up and stretch etc. Maybe hit a single that you know you can easily do on Monday and then end the day. You could even take the week off if needed. Keep in the back of your head that you're saving your energy and CNS for the meet, not for a few days before the meet!

    Openers for all 3 lifts. First attempt. On the same day. Warm up, hit them, and don't perform additional volume.

    yeah when i prepped i hit my openers on monday then spent the rest of the week stretching and ding mobility work and just recovering. i wouldn't do any sort of training past wednesday if for some reason you really need to go to the gym after monday.
    I lifted heavy once.
    It was cool.
