"This was my 2nd heavy Deadlift workout for my meet prep towards GPA Worlds. I'm exactly 8 weeks out from the meet from this weekend. I only have 6 weeks left of heavy training for my peaking cycle. The last 2 weeks before a meet, I always de load and rest to be 100% recovered on meet day. Everything felt great for this training session.
