A couple of meet prep questions...

When is the last 90%+ CJ and SN you have lifters do in training prior to a meet?

Do you emphasize any heavy assistance exercises the last 2 weeks prior to the meet to maintain strength as you taper off the competitive lifts?

Any other critical factors to watch the week prior?

Thanks for the advice.

usually 14 days for the cln and jerk and 8 days for the snatch.  however i usually go to openers on the sat or sund before the meet   it really depends on the lifter and the meet.  i do not do many assistant exercises the last 2 wks.  mostly bs, fs, sn cln and jerk.    2 x per week fs, 1 x bs.  if i do have a weakness with a lifter we may work that the last 2 wks, but again that depends on the time, the meet, the lifter.   if its a local meet like we are having this weekend i would work the weakness.....if it was a national meet i would probably work more on the lifts. 

hope this helps.
