I might as well just tack my question on here.. I am a novice to lifting and just started 5/3/1 this week..
I didn't test my 1RM b/c I wanted a smooth transition from the bodybuilding I was running up until last week and it was sort of a last minute decision due to a need for a change of pace..
I based my bench off the closest thing I had (6RM slight decline bench), military press off pre-exhausted BTN press (5RM), squat off pre-exhausted squat (6RM) and I figured extrapolating on all these I should be roughly in the neighborhood (esp. with the 10% deduction)..
My first day flat benching in about a half a year I think, I got 10 reps (so +5), but Wednesday I set my deadlift to 250 (most I've ever lifted off floor b/c I only deadlifted for about a month when I started about a year ago and quickly removed them when I realized how easily I progressed on them under the logic that I should just focus on squat and my DL would go up - my squat was a lot worse off - granted I could lift 250lbs fairly easily, but I didn't want to guesstimate seeing as how that much that is stressed against) and ended up with 190 on my topmost working set (which was 24 reps, or +19, and at that point I just stopped b/c it seemed pointless to keep grinding out more)..
Should I reset this, did I fuckup, will this fix in time?
I don't mind being patient seeing as Wendler seems to advocate even starting lighter or using smaller weight jumps to plateau less.. but I feel like my other two work sets (which aren't taken to failure) are going to be so far off that they aren't really worksets..
At any rate, some good advice would be appreciated.. thanks
Edit: I know this is sorta along lines of original post.. it's just that I feel like my DL will shoot up now that I am doing them, when I get my technique down, and that 24rep top set was nowhere near close to failure - seems off compared to other peoples first week..
OP's question was 5 extra reps on his third week, so I don't know though.. maybe over thinking this
