I am new to the 531 program so I am just learning my way.
I have read the 531 book (hard to get in the UK in hard copy, I haven’t found beyond 531 yet)
I notice already that I can go above the prescribed 5 reps in week one by maybe 4 reps but as the weights increase my ability to go beyond is reduced. Maybe only getting 1 or two reps in the x3 and maybe 1 in the x1
Is that normal?
I notice that the calculated weight from the x5 week is always a lot higher than the x1 week.
I came from a 5x5 program to 531 so hitting close to max weights is kinda rusty for me.
Will this improve in time?
