Thanks guys! Yeah that all makes sense to have the third lift be the only cheeky one. I might readjust numbers based on how training numbers are just before it, given how well training has been going on squat and deadlift.
Recently got 111kg on the deadlift for one set of five reps and that will probably go up so I figure i should be able to smash past the old ORM of 130kg
As for the squat. Got in three sets of five at 90.9kg on the box squat before I realized the sheer idiocy of box squatting with what is (for me) a very heavy load. If I lose control on the way down with that, my spine is gone. Just switching back to regular squats now. With the old ORM at 106 i figure i should be able to smash that too.
Of course there isn't really any rule for translating sets into ORMs is there. In any case, though, the sets are significantly heavier than they were when the ORMs were originally set.
So yeah i'll probably base the goals on two/three things
1) base numbers on last week of training before meet and 2) use either baldy's numbers for third or a bit higher if training has gone really well.
2) will have the first two be comfortable as suggested. Probably just use the first two numbers baldy suggests.
Someone recently introduced me to the ideal of needle goals or something. The idea is your goals are three numbers not one. Bare minimum, good, excellent.
Oh and Baldy it's not on till the 11th of December
Also, funny you ask but the organiser (which *ahem* might be me) insisted on also having a table ranked by wilks numbers
JS - They think it will open the door to folk like LordMuppet campaigning for a threeway?
