First Day of 5/3/1 in the books!
Felt surprisingly easy but that is how the program is suppose to start so I am not going to rush anything. Squat weight that I based maxes of was 270, or 90% of 300. Decided all assistance work would be leg or ab related on squat day. And all the percentages were rounded up to the next 5 pounds. 5x10 of squats or the BBB work was only 60% of max but will increase that percentage every few weeks.I am questioning if I should push the last set of the regular 5/3/1 to failure or just do the prescribed reps and move on? Any opinion would be helpful.
Anyways here was the workout:
Squat warm up: 1x5 at 125 1x5 at 145 1x3 at 165
Squat Work sets 1x5 at 205 1x5 at 220 1x5 at 230
BBB Squat Work: 5x10 at 165
Other Assistance Work: Dumbbell Romanian Dead lift 4x10
Single Leg Extensions 1x20 1x18 1x15 each leg- hold top squeeze on last rep of each set
Hanging Leg Raises with 8lb weight 5x10
Solid workout all together, took around an hour, and I ready for the next day already
