Last Bench before da meet...

I've been working ridiculous hours the past couple of weeks and it's been hard to get training in when I get home at 9PM or later, so today I took a longish lunch to head home and get a bench session in with Jess. We rocked it.

A1. Mobility

Leg Swings
Squat Pulls
Band Scapular Pulldown

B1. Bench Press

8 x 95#
5 x 135#
3 x 185#
1 x 205#
1 x 225#
1 x 250# did this one with competition calls
1 x 270#

I brought the 270# way too high but still ground the rep out. I think my 3 attempts for bench will be 250#, 270-275#, 290#.

This leads me to my dilemma. 12 days before the meet, and I want to get one more deadlift session in, but it's the most taxing lift. I'm not sure what to do- maybe just warm it up? I feel like I need to get it in somehow... Discuss.
