    Since your meet is this Saturday, take the rest of the week off. This will ensure that your body is well rested and ready to push maximum effort on the platform. The worst thing to do is compete while overtrained or body not rested.

    TRAIN HARD

    I would do a few light sets of the 3 lifts. I would bench and squat on Monday then bench and dead on Wednesday but keeping it light. Use it more of a warmup/stretch in preperation for Saturday.

    I'll second that. By now there is no time to change form or work on anything so your best bet is to take it easy.

    I am also a powerlifter for my high school, and have been wondering the same thing about the week before my competitions..

    I have one in 3 weeks and the big one March 7th. So do you guys just suggest taking the week light or 'deload', if you will?

    I just want to make sure that is the best solution.

    Last year I lifted heavy until Thursday, and still won a deadlift trophy on Saturday. I wasn't sore or anything either. Deloading has always been a confusing topic since I have seen many conflicting ideas of how it should be performed.

    I would lift light on Monday and Wednesday if the meet is saturday. Just use these days more as a stretch rather than a workout. Eat up all week and you should be good to go. Just listen to your body.
