6 Days out of a Bench / Deadlift Meet.
Shooting for 235 paused bench, and 405-420 deadlift. Main focus is not bombing out..
Any last tips / advice for first competition?

How are you on bodyweight? I would try to consume as much good food as possible this week.

For the meet I would open light and then go with a challenging lift on your second attempt then shoot for PR's on your third attempts. Something like this:

Bench:
Opener: 190 lbs
Second: 220 lbs
Third: 235 lbs

Deadlift:
Opener: 355 lbs
Second: 385 lbs
Third: 410-415 lbs

I have to agree with the above poster.... open light and have fun. Nothing wrong with making a bigger jump between your opener and your second just to make sure you are comfortable and confident the first lift you do on the platform.

Make sure you know the rules and commands for the federation. Especially for benching.

Do not focus on bombing out. Don't even focus on your numbers. Focus on the process. Your body knows what to do and what you are capable of. Now you just have to get your mind right. It's going to be a great day, have fun!

Great advice from, Vincent.

Enjoy the process and have fun! If you do miss a lift, no biggie. I have seen guys miss a lift and come back and nail the next one.

I agree, You want your first meet to be a good experience. Don't get all caught up with a number, just get on the board and have some fun.

Only thing that threw me off the first time was the flights. Make sure you know which flight you're in for each lift, and what position in each flight. Makes it easy to time your warmups.

talk to people in your flight, watch what they are doing, and follow them to some extent. Its important to time your warm ups right so your not rushed, or sitting there for twenty minutes before your first attempt. Its gonna be tempting to warm up early and if your distracted you might be late so just make sure if the guys in your flight look ready to go, you should be on the same page.
Also make sure your take the time to sit down and relax. Especially between your attempts and last warm ups
