In a few weeks I’ll be completing the 5/3/1 Boring But Big 3-month challenge.
On the 3rd month of the above system I’ll be moving onto doing 70% of the 1-rep training max on the second exercise of the workout (having done 50% and 60% on the 1st and 2nd months respectively).
Now - considering that I intend to continue with Wendler 5/3/1, on what % should I work in the upcoming cycles? I would presume that 70% may be too high, considering that I’m adding 5/10 pounds to my training maxes (and then obviously recalculating training % of the new numbers).
A further question: on the Boring But Big 3-month challenge the indications are to only do prescribed reps on all workouts. How should I do things in upcoming cycles upon completion of the 3 months? Should I push for as many reps as possible (short of failure) just on Weeks 2 and 3? Or what?
