Hi I have read the books but I am still just a novice. Been doing 5/3/1 for 5 months. My starting Calculated Maxes were:
I ran it with some conditioning but not a whole lot of accessory work for the first three months. I started BBB in July doing 50% of Training Max then 60% in August.
Now in September my Program Maxes are:
I missed a rep on my last "5" of the Press and Squats were wicked hard. I also missed reps on my Press BBB. I made my reps on Bench (no pr but 9 reps for bench) and Deadlift.
To be clear I have been using 90% of the Maxes above as my 5/3/1 Training Max.
Should I muscle through this cycle or reset and start from the first week again. How much weight should I drop back?
I have read different things about the PR set. Should I be crushing it every time? For squat and press I barely make the minimum reps. For bench I usually get a PR on the 3 week and the 1 week.
