Hi Guys. I'm a long-time reader but just recently decided to ask a Q.

I've got a PL meet coming up and will only have 6 weeks to prepare for it. My plan was to re-test my 1RMs then start with the cycle. I based it off of two factors 1)I'm really new to competing, this will be my first IPF meet, so I'm thinking of a linear progression. 2)Using prilepin's table for max strength.

Typically, i was just working on form, so I would do the three big lifts twice a week (with 1-2 assistance exercises), once at 80% (7 x 2) and once at 70% (5 x4). I kept the reps low to focus on set-up.

This is my current plan with the meet being at the end of week 6. Any thoughts, suggestions, tweaks?

Its your first meet so do what you think is good then go from there. once you know how the cycle worked post meet then you can adjust. Just be sure to open super low on all openers. Most people bomb first time out as they open waaaay to heavy.
