Simple quick question. Starting a 10 week cycle into a meet in June and i'm not sure if i should use my old maxes or my goals/projected for the meet. They are nothing over the top (50 lbs deadlift and 45 lbs squat).

I've never used projected maxes, only current maxes. So that's what I would go with.

I agree with Brian. Build a cycle off what you can do. Not what you want to. It never works out and just leads to a big let down come meet day.
