How to adjust training and max percentages coming off of a meet

If you set personal records, set your training maxes to whatever those numbers are. Your training percentages coming off of a meet should be low enough starting a new training cycle that you will be able to handle the weights that correspond to the new personal records in the competitive lifts.

If you did not set personal records in the meet, set your training maxes to whatever your previous personal records are (assuming that you are generally within reach of lifting the weights that correspond to those numbers).

The training percentages of your training cycle coming off of a meet should generally be quite low, in a relative sense (around the 60-70% range). However, at times they will be higher, as in the case of a quick turnaround for another meet where a peaking cycle is required.
