PLSituation
Your PR Squat is 195 kg, Current State Record is 200 kg
Your PR Bench is 127.5 kg Current State Record is 132.5 kg
Your PR Deadlift is 240 kg, Current State Record is 250 kg.
The current state record total is 575 kg. The qualifying total for Nationals is 570 kg.
Your goals/priorities are 1st to qualify for Nationals and 2nd to break as many state records as possible. Training has been going well. You feel like you have added ~5 kg to each of your lifts since last meet. You opened at 177.5 kg and just squatted 190 kg for your 2nd attempt. It moved well, but felt heavier than expected. What do you put on for your 3rd attempt Squat and why?

NewLifterTip
Attend Early Equipment Check (if offered).
Not every meet offers this, but many meets will offer early equipment check the night before the meet. This gives you an opportunity to get your rack heights, check your bodyweight on the official meet scale (not actually weigh-in) and get all of your equipment checked by the referees. Getting these things done ahead of time will save time/stress the morning of the meet.
