Re: The week before the competition???

A true CFT demands a huge neuroendicrine response and takes a heavy toll on your body, which will be felt by a lack of strength for a short while (several days) afterward.

I would suggest that you do not get anywhere close to 1RM -- especially on 3 different lifts in one session -- that close to any competition.

you should be in a good taper for at least 10 days or 2 weeks before a competition.

PS: Good luck and have fun, Josh. I'll be one of the judges there.
