View Full Version : First Full RAW Meet

03-19-2012, 01:27 PM
Hey all-

I have done a bunch of meets for the past few years. But none of them were Raw. They were also just Push Pull. I have decided to do a Full Raw meet. Any advice anyone has? It is in over 6 weeks. I have not bene doing any programs, but I feel strong.

Any advice for a first time full meet?

Do it! That's my advice.

Do it! That's my advice.

I agree. Jump in and sink or swim. Try to swim LOL. At the meet take videos of each attempt then get back on here and post the vids. Get some critiques then go from there.

Just open light. Have fun from there.

Go decently heavy on all the lifts raw until the meet. Figure out what your openers are at least 2-3 weeks before. If you feel strong at this point, then all you have to do is keep your cns ready by going heavy enough but without peaking before it. The last meet I did something similar and decided to do a meet 4 weeks out and got some small prs on everything. It went fine.
