The main thing is to recuperate as much as possible and find ways to boost your confidence. Emphasize your sleep routine, take naps during the afternoons when you can, take a few minutes now and then to shut your eyes and visualize your lifts. Lots of different ways to do that, but a simple starting point is to literally do your entire warm-up and your platform lifts in your head. I also like to watch lifting videos - but make sure you watch ones that feature good lifters doing things properly and don't watch the misses if you can help it.

Good luck and let us know how you do,
