    Starting 10 week cycle - old max or new max?

    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).

    2000 or bust

    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.
