I know it's not a lot of time but I'm looking for a real short program to help me peak. I haven't followed a set routine for a couple years now so I'm wondering if there was something I should try. Looking to do a meet October 23rd so that gives me about 5 weeks from today.

Week 5 triple at 95%
Week 4 set of 6 at 85%
week 3 3 singles at 80%
Week 2 deload
Week 1 meet

Take it easy and recover

I didn't do exactly what Scott suggests above, but I definitelty eased into my meet during the last 3 weeks. This allowed me to hit pr's in both my squat and deadlift at a lighter bodyweight.

Thanks Scott that's exactly what I was looking for. I'll give it a try.

5 weeks out is all about peaking right and recovery. Good luck.
