I dont know much and im probably not as experienced as you but i'd say make sure you take it steady if you've only got a week. Maybe do some light training and some active recovery to make sure you dont compete feeling beat up at all.

rest..... and as long as you aren't cutting weight, EAT.

you won't get any stronger before then, just don't do anything dumb to mess up what you already have.
