Hey I've got a question. There is a meet I'd like to enter in 6 weeks. I've never competed before, but would like to take the plunge. Although I have not been training specifically with this meet in mind, I have been training the big three. So you have any advice on peaking? Since this is my first meet I'm more just concerned about getting a total and having a meet experience. Is 6 weeks enough time to dial it in? Or should I pass? Any help would be appreciated


Depends on your experience and strength levels. It sounds like this would be a first meet or the first meet you've done in awhile. So I would think 6 weeks should be a sufficient amount of time to peak.
6 weeks out work max triples
5 weeks out work singles up to 90-95%
4 weeks out deload singles
3 weeks out work singles up to 95-100%
2 weeks out work singles with rev bands up to 100-110%
1 week out deload/openers

-this is just an idea, you have to go by feel and again, experience level and age will play a big role
