I have a 20 week off season starting from July until my last planned competition in early December.

Was thinking of running 37 and 31 twice (16 weeks) then peaking with 32 (4 weeks).

After the first 8 weeks, I'll make some assumptions based off how the 8 weeks went and increase my maxes for the next 8 weeks. Obviously I'd be a bit conservative but the increases would be reasonable.

Would this be a good idea? Or is there a preferred way of running prep cycles within an extended time frame?

Current lifts are: 240/140/253 (252.5 rounded on the spreadsheet), 120kg class.

Thanks in advance for any help

I have been doing the over 80kg 3 day program and feeling great so far. My question is how many prep cycles can I run back to back? I have a competition 20 weeks away and I was planning to run the modified #37 and modified #31 twice and finish off with #32. Is that too many prep cycles or is that ok?

Thanks.

I would run through #37v2 and #31 then do the first week only of #32v2 with the skills test. Then take your new maxes and start over, going all the way through the second time.
