    You could do that for your first comp. If its working well why change it?

    Would you guys recommend doing a month of smolov jnr for all 3 lifts in the lead up?
    Itís for sure not something Iíd recommend.

    Its a weightlifting program, and a very hard one without drugs...... even with drugs.

    There should be a change in programming from your strength block to your peaking block, but I can think of many better options, especially given where youíre at with your career.

    Dont use it for deadlift. Just pull once a week, low to moderate volume. Increasing intensity as you close in on the meet.

    its not even the full routine,its 3 weeks of squatting and benching 4 times a week with a week rest before comp.Yes its hard,but youll be conditioned to handle everything thrown at you on comp day,ur not training for 1 max lift,your training for 9 max lifts.

    even though I'm in calorie deficit now I'm gonna start 2 weeks of smolov jr at 80% to train and somewhat acclimatise to the amount of bench and squat volume I'll be doing, starting tomorrow morning with the wednesday 7x5 day

    squat weight will be 90 for 7x5
    bench weight will be 75 for 7x5

    obviously skipped the 'monday' of the program but did heavy bench sunday and heavy squat yesterday so still kinda comparable

    Any thoughts on stiff vs flexible wrist wraps?

    Worth getting the 100cm instead of 60cm?

    Never used them with any kind of consistency.
    Focussed so much of squeezing my grip and focing my wrists to stay in position...that they just do it on thier own now haha.

    One thing i do like about them is the cue to actually initiate and hold said squeeze.

    In terms of length? No idea.

    Consensus online seems to be 100cm is the best in comp for offering the most support but only adds a tiny bit more than 60cm but is way more of a hassle to put on.

    Gonna go with 60cm

    also give your assessment on how hard the sets are, i gotta be honest,im not a good deadlifter so incorporating the deadlift somehow,i dont know.I just thought i could get by on leg strength.I did speed deads on the 6x6 monday.
