Does anyone have any advice regarding competing mid way through a cycle. I have a competition this Saturday and would usually work up to a few heavy singles in the days preceding (mainly as confidence boosters) and then have a couple of days rest. Any feedback is appreciated.

For the Clean grip DL, is that 80% of our max CGDL or our max CJ?

Steve.. The same exercise was on the 4/30 workout and I asked the same question.

Assuming that answer was correct it is based off your max clean %... which may or may not be your max CJ.

Pulls and DLs are always based off of best snatch or clean.

Try to take 10 seconds to lower the weight back to the floor, maintaining perfect position.

Not a great point to do a meet as you're going to be beat up from the volume. I would cut way back to singles only today, do only maybe 60% singles of sn and CJ on thur, rest Friday. And expect that you will not be at your absolute best on Sat.

Hi Greg

Thanks for your response. I had planned to rest Thursday/ Friday and am feeling well rested and recovered now with 24 hours to go.

I'll report back on Sunday once I have competed with my results.
