I just completed my first cycle of the 5/3/1 program. My starting maxes were:
Back Squat 455
Bench Press 365
Axe Press 223
Here is a link to starting maxes video:
After first cycle finished with
Back Squat 390x3
Bench Press 315x4
Axe Press 188x6
Happy with axe press, my overhead pressing and jerking are improving nicely. I was hoping for 5 or 6 my bench press, but that will come. Deadlift is slowly starting to creep back up, as I continue to lose weight my form will improve and it should rise. Very disappointed with back squat though. Will work much harder on the getting the sqaut up.
I should mention that I’ve lost 10 pounds during this first cycle also.
