I’ve just finished my first Beyond 531 6 week cycle, and I managed to add 150lbs to my total: my deadlift went from 400lbs to 455lbs, my squat from 225lbs to 290lbs, and my bench from 170lbs to 200lbs (yeah, I’m weak, haha). I did start eating quite a bit more during that time also, but I still attribute a big share of that success to one awesome program with which I am having tons of fun. So thanks for that!
So here’s the question: should I stick to adding 10lbs and 5lbs to lower and upper body TMs, respectively? I understand that I shouldn’t have a huge jump for the TMs, but I figured adding 20-25lbs for squats and deads after such a progression would be a sensible thing to do.
To be honest, I am a little worried I’ll waste time (and strength) training with weights that now seem a tad too light. But then again, START LIGHT and PROGRESS SLOWLY do seem to be important principles…
Any thoughts and input greatly appreciated!
