    I get in my shirt 3 weeks out, train raw like I normally would 2 weeks out and take the week before off. That's about it.

    Don't over think it.

    I'm a fan of 5 week cycles. 5 raw, 5 shirted and rotated. Newbies imo should be in gear atleast 5 times pre meet in a 10 week cycle

    I'm in the gear a lot during my training so all I do is hit an opener or near-opener 2 weeks out, then light reps to boards a week out.
