    I suppose that, since you certainly have a base level of strengh off of which to build, you could try training with singles if you haven't already. Progressively heavier singles leading up to a new PR, max or near-max attempt work well. I usually complete each exercise in no more than six reps and I find it not only effective but enjoyable as well. I'm not sure if this is a good idea so close to a competition, but if you go about it the right way you can simply rest a few days between workouts and your body will be used to such attempts by comp time.

    not giving yourself much time at all. You really have 2 weeks and then a one week taper.

    Best idea:

    Just train like you have been training and wind down your volume a week and a half out and then about 6 days out wind down the intensity.

    i mean, you could go a ltitle heavier. I don't know what kind of adaptations you think will take place in 2-3 weeks time. People train for many many weeks for a powerlifting meet. there is a "science" to it.

    There probably won't be too much adaptation in such a short time, but a couple of weeks of doing triples wouldn't hurt, and might give him a indication of his limits.
