The general consensus is that if you're in meet prep all bench work should be paused. Well this was what was hurting my joints the most. So after experimenting I decided to go with touch most of my prep as it was the least stressful on my tendinitis. Traditionally a big no no it actually ended up saving my bench for the meet.
So what did I bench? Well in training I had to reduce my volume and frequency dramatically from the original plan. I only went up to 343 because by the end it started hurting pretty bad. At the meet I hit a smooth 352 bench which matched a PR after a year of not competing due to opening the new gym.
The moral is this: If you're struggling to hit your programmed work load or you can't seem to work around an injury; don't be afraid to change it! I can't stress this enough. It drives me nuts when I see people stick 100% to a program even if it's killing them. Yes some new challenge required stress but it shouldn't be making you worse! The whole point of the sport is to progress and if you're not then you should definitely take the time reevaluate.
It's not quitting or giving up, you won't ruin the program by changing a few things. It makes you a smart athlete! I do have a disclaimer though, whatever you decide to change. It needs to work and it needs to be consistent. There is no right or wrong answer for what works for you BUT don't be that person changing their program every other week because eventually nothing will work out.
It'll take some time to figure out but the more meets you do the more experience you'll have under your belt to eventually figure out what works best for YOU and only you.
