I'm going to do a meet this november, little bit off but I wanted some time to get a bit stronger and then prepare. It'll be in the RPS federation, 220 weight class (looking to bulk another 10 lbs).
I've never competed before so I was hoping to get some advice. Specifically when squatting raw, do you need to dip below parallel? Is that what is typically done to avoid red lights?
I'm also doing 5/3/1 now, should I continue with that right up until the meet or should there be time time where I start practising competition form (pause on the bench) a month or two before?
Any advice is appreciated, thanks a bunch.
