In about one month I am going to enter my 3rd PL meet of the year. I'm 17 years old, 185 lb and last sunday at a standard (Bench, Squat, Dead) PL, I managed 300 Bench, 370 Squat (bad knees), and 460 Dead. It was good enough for 2nd place overall. (1st Bench, 2nd Dead, 3rd Squat).
The problem was the kid who took first place these two past meets is a strong deadlifter and squatter. He got 505 dead and I think about 400+ squat. His bench is weak, about 250lb. Since this next powermeet is close to his home school I assume that he will be at this next meet. But since the deadlifts are dropped and exchanged for Power cleans I have a better chance at the win.
I should be good for about 305+ bench by then and about 390lb squat. I'm not sure on my powercleans but I am going to train them. Does anyone know a good workout that replaces deads for power cleans? I can't seem to find any good ones. Thanks!
