New to powerlifting, getting ready for my first full power meet

Hey guys I just thought I could get a little advice from some vets - I'm going to try my first full power meet January 29th. It will be a raw tested meet and my first time doing bench or squat in competition. I did a deadlift only meet with the same organization back before thanksgiving and pulled 560. I'm going to switch my training this week over to more powerlifting style training from my usual bodybuilding training. Up to this point I have only ever deadlifted/squatted every other week and benched every third week. I bought both Wendler's 531 book and a new book called Juggernaut Strength System and will be using a program from the Juggernaut system based on a four day split of bench, squat, deadlift, overhead press. I was just wondering what sort of advice you vets have about getting ready for doing potentially 9 max attempts in one day, little things/quirks about a meet, and training in general. I'll try to post up my training program once I get it all figured out. Thanks!

IMO it's all about conditioning. That's one of the main reasons i use a Westside method, you squat and deadlift on the same days and get both heavy work and dynamic work. it's the dynamic work thats so good for meet conditioning. You're also not giving yourself much time to get ready for the meet but thats ok, i've gone into meets with only 2 weeks of prep lol, just be ready to be tired as hell after benching. I would strongly advise on your heavy squat days do dynmaic deadlifting with about 30 seconds rest between sets, and then on heavy deadlift days do dynamic squat (no box, since you're RAW you want to work on your stretch reflex) with 30 seconds of rest. the dynamic work shouldn't be heavy, especialy since you're competing RAW tested, but even though you're at 40-50% of your 1RM, after 12 sets of 1-3 reps with short a short rest you will understand why this method is used.
Hope that helps some,
Walker
