 Tough break, man. Sometimes it comes together on the day, but unfortunately sometimes it doesnt. Did you open too high maybe? My 2nd meet was yesterday, and thankfully it was in the former category. Went 9/9 totaling 557.5kg/1229lbs @ 82.8kg/183lbs. PR squat of 210kg and PR deadlift of 230kg, bench stayed pretty flat over the three months so really have to put my thinking cap on about that, but i knew going in.
"greasing the groove" for pullups works very well, do a bunch of sets every day where you stop 2-4 reps before failure.
I train at GetStrength. It's a small gym at the back of an equipment manufacturing facility, but the manufacturing is moving soon and the gym is taking over the space. I was lifting at a YMCA before I found this place, now I can't go back to shitty gear. I started out lifting in a globo gym when I was living in the states. How about you?   Maybe you guys will like this. Shot a video of a Brett Gibbs training session at a meet we recently hosted. Dude is a machine. I...
Thanks, yep doing the APA novice meet.
Our main lift on our secondary bench day is 3-count pause work, and all of our competition grip width benching is done with a comp pause. We use TnG for close-grip, incline etc done later in the sessions. Seems to help off the chest a bunch.
 Thanks! Should be pretty good, hit a decent squat PR recently, but bench isnt going anywhere fast and deadlift is a real crapshoot! Will be fun anyway.
I don't even sumo (because lol sumo heh) so I have no real suggestions. The sumo lifters in my gym seem to do a lot of deficit sumos and block pulls, box squats but not super wide, with less but still some trap bar or conventional work.
IMO, the complimentary lifts you've chose are close enough to the competition lifts that it will be fine, assuming you have planned for a decent preparatory block prior to your next comp/testing period.
 Congrats! Did you have a good time on the day? My second comp is in 11 days, I'm more amped for this one than i was the first.
