I'm beginning 5/3/1...with 90% 1RM as training max, after failing when I began with 100%. I'm only DL-ing for now, and will a speed/rep/...light (assistance) DL day instead of squat (free gym membership, great gym, only they don't have a squat rack. OTOH, I don't really care about my squat).
Fail: Tried DL-ing heavy twice per week... after a 245 x 5 one session, 260 x 4 the next, I got 245 x2 then fail last session.
To the question:
How much, approximately, of my DL 1RM should I use for SLDLs?
Secondly, SLDL means - done to below the kneecap, mid shin, or nearly full range?
Current 1RM DL (tested): 286 lbs (130 kg)
I'll probably get 5/3/1 next month.
BTW, should I get get 5/3/1 or 5/3/1 for powerlifting? I want to get the biggest (in the long run) DL I can get without getting injured. (does 5/3/1 for PL also contain the "normal" 5/3/1 info?).
