You pick your TM (90% of your current 1RM, tested or estimated) and use that for your first cycle. For the second cycle, you add NO MORE than 5lbs to cycle 2’s TMs for the presses and NO MORE than 10lbs to TMs for the squats and deads (no more means you can add less if you prefer to progress slower). You keep doing this - adding weight to the next cycle’s TM - until you stall in one of the lifts. Then you reset that lift’s TM 10 90% but keep progressing the other lifts.
The difference to what you lined out is that there is no fixed point in time when you reset; you do it when it becomes necessary, and you do it one lift at a time.[/quote]
I know this answer was off-topic but I thought it was perfect. I still think this is the best way for most people to run 5/3/1. The original way. There’s no sense in fancying up a simple progression scheme.
