I’ve been doing the 531 original program it’s been simple and effective and I’ve had great results. Every week I’ve hit more than the prescribed reps and I’ve broken PR’s every week taking the Deloads every fourth week.
Now I’m on my fifth cycle and I’ve noticed that I’m having a tough time hitting a PR for reps on some of my lifts. For example I overhead press 190 14 times couple of cycles ago when it was my 90%. But this time around it was my 85% to start off a new cycle and I only did nine reps. Could have been the previous five rep sets got heavier than previous Cycles?
My deadlift on the other hand continues to go up and I just feel like do you have to reset if you’re just getting the prescribed reps or just a little bit over? I’m looking ahead to the OnePlus weeks and I’m pretty positive I can hit the 1 + sets without any problem. Just curious if anyone else faced this. Thanks
