    Need advice on meet prep

    Im not really sure on how to organize the training leading up to a meet. I tried an experiment with 2 weeks overloading, then 2 weeks deloading and it didnt work at all. I realized I made it way more complicated and advanced than needed. So this is my current plan for the meet.

    Mon DE Upper 8x3@60% 1x3@70% 1x2@80% 1x1@90%
    Tue ME Lower Low Box Squat
    Wed off
    Thu ME Upper deload (no ME movement, regular supplemental and accessory work)
    Fri DE Lower 8x2 Box Squats@55% 1x2@65% 1x1@75% with bands
    Sat off
    Sun off
    Mon DE Upper
    Tue ME Lower
    Wed off
    Thu ME Upper
    Fri DE Lower
    Sat off
    Sun Meet

    Would working up on DE days the week prior be a bad idea? Also Im not really sure how to fill the final week. Prepping a weeks worth of training for a single day is a bit confusing. This would be my first meet so other than my overload/deload trial I have no prior experiance with this.

    I would not use bands the week before and you should not be training the week of the meet. I usually train heavy all the way up until two weeks out. Then 1 week out I will just hit openers or sometimes even just my last warmups. The week of the meet I just rest and maybe do some very light assistance work just to keep from going crazy and keep my body moving like it's used too. The last few days before the meet though just stay completely away from the gym.

    The meet is in 4 months. So for ME Lower the week prior I should just work up to something heavy, but not maximal? And the week of the meet it should look like this?
    Mon DE Upper triceps, lats, shoulders higher reps, no straining
    Tue ME Lower hamstrings/back and abs higher reps, no straining, or replace it all with light sled dragging
    Wed off
    Thu ME Upper very light triceps, recovery focused (ex: 2 minute sets of pushdowns)
    Fri DE Lower dont train
    Sat off
    Sun Meet

    I realized part of it Im just going to have to do it and see how it works, but I want to go into the meet without having done stupid stuff just prior.

    Yes on the ME stuff. If you want to do the light stuff on Monday and Tuesday, that's fine. Nothing that is gonna leave you real tired or sore though. Then take off from Weds until the meet. Rest is key. A lot of people don't even step in the gym the whole week.
