So this is my first meet of 2008. It's an ADFPF Mass Deadlift only meet. My training has been crap (only got in 3 M.E. workouts, 2 upper 1 lower, and nothing else) the past two weeks and diet has been roughly maintenance. I am feeling good though strength wise...
My current max DL in the gym is sitting somewhere around 420. My plan for the meet was to open at 365, second attempt at 405, and third 425-455 (depending on how I feel). I am going to be competing fully RAW, not even a belt.
Any advice as far as diet / training goes? I was thinking to maybe get in a heavy max effort deadlift workout tomorrow with some front squats and good mornings accessory work, followed by speed work later in the week and then rest and carb loading.. I am fine weight wise, going to be competing in the 220 class, currently sitting around 212 pretty bloated. I've never done a deadlift meet, I have competed bench only in the past... any advice????
