i 'm in my first Wendler’s 531 cycle, just finished week 3. My reps on the last set look kinda weird:
squat: 5+: 9, 3+: 10, 1+: 8
bench: 5+: 8, 3+: 6, 1+: 4
deadlift: 5+: 15, 3+: 13, 1+: 12
press: 5+: 12, 3+: 9, 1+: 9
I am on the ass end of my third cycle in 5/3/1. I have no other experience with it, just this one cycle so far. Far from an expert on the matter.
That disclaimer said, do as the program states, add 10 to deads and squats, and 5 to your presses.
I was asking the same rep questions at the end of my first cycle, it falls into place really well.
If anything, it would seem your deadlift reps are a bit on the high side, if that continues into cycle 2, maybe just add an additional 10 lbs to your calculation on them, if you see fit… The other reps, seem fine to me… but… if your fine with the higher reps… no reason at all to modify.
Bench press was low in cycle one for me, but by cycle 3 I’ve increased my weight and reps, across the board… in case your concerned about your lower reps in BP.
Stick with the program and modify accordingly, if you see the need.
1 cycle however, seems a bit early to start modifying.
Don’t fall prey to the mindset that all your rep ranges for all 4 exercises, need to be lined up.
