    I'm sure you could break a few masters records.

    How long did it take to recover and how badly did it set you back...if it did at all.

    I get to feeling my oats every once in a while and will pull @ 70% for 12 or 15 reps. Only to find a week or two later my numbers just fall off the face of the earth. I'm trying to determine if this is a response that's specific to me or would anyone get crushed doing high rep DLs?
    I like doing high rep deads every so often when I get a bug up my butt. But I will do only high rep deads, no other dead work once per week and keep it going until I'm completely worn out and/or have set a new PR. It doesn't help my one rep max but does give me that 'satisfied' feeling. They are also very hard on your recovery and why I am a big fan of deads every 14 days when they become nearly intolerable, which for me is when they start impacting my other lifts.

    I don't know about that, but I suspect I might be able to at least place.

    USPA seems pretty active in The People's Rainbow Republic of Kalifornia. Here's their state records: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...1E&output=html

    I seemed to have missed these guys entirely. Thanks. I see some meets coming up in January here in downtown LA to watch and get acclimated to. I have a singlet to buy and maybe a better belt. In the words of the late great Roy Schieder, "Gonna need a bigger belt."

    I would not sell yourself short, Mark.

    Yeah, I'm coming to that conclusion myself.

    Thanks for the input!

    Weight: 252.5

    5 minute warmup on the bike.

    Standing Overhead Press: 140, 4 sets of 2 reps.

    Barbell Row: 240, 4 sets of 2.

    Claw Grip: 227, 2 sets of 5 PR!

    So getting serious about entering a meet had me searching the site here for a peaking and tapering plan for a meet in Santa Barbara this Spring. As I was doing this I came across a post I had made to Rip a couple years ago about the 8 week cycles I am doing now. He told me then, and I forgot, that the 8 week plan was for olympic lifting rather than powerlifting. So I am re-thinking my programming now. Probably a competition oriented 5/3/1 template with 8 week PR attempts.

    I have the 5/3/1 for Powerlifting ebook, here is the template...

    Now I know I will get a ton of question as to why there is a switch of weeks 1 and 2.
    The biggest reason is that it allows you to take singles on the two heaviest weeks and
    have a week off in between them (this will be shown in the book). But here is how it is
    set up:

    Week 1 – 3x3 + heavy singles
    Week 2 – 3x5
    Week 3 – 5/3/1 + heavy singles
    Week 4 – 3x5, deload

    So with the above example, we now see that the 4 week program is waved like this:

    Week 1 – Heavy
    Week 2 – Medium
    Week 3 – Heavy
    Week 4 – Light

    Thanks for that. I have Wendler's book in hard copy and didn't recognize that bit of information. I just pulled it off my bookshelf at home and sure enough, not there. Interesting that his ebook had that but not the print version.
