Im done with the first week of month 3 in the challenge. While my volume strength has increased Im not sure if my max 5 rm 3rm and 1rm has increased.
e.g deadlift 1rm 190kg - 3month deadlift volume is 120x5x10 which is heavy to complete but doable. But on my heavy deadlift days it still feel heavy to do 150x5 since i never actually increase my 531 lifts.
Ive gotten to month 3 and the first week was heavy but doable. Should I expect a strength gain? Im not sure if i have made any at all since i never actually increase my main lifts. Size wise i have gains more tone in my muscles, especially in my back and arms since i never did any real volume in the past. coming from madcow.
if anything i might feel sort of detrained in my max lifts since i never hit them like in other programs like madcow which i made crazy squat gains in.
i did 135 easily, but now in my 3 month challenge 120x1 feels heavy since i never get the chance to increase.
as for my lifts if interseting in KG:
