1) Anyone switching from a linear progression to 5/3/1 BBB notice there working sets dropped quite a bit strength wise. I got up to 250x3x5 on the squat on SS/greyskull then today on my first squat workout I struggled with 215 for 8. I did 225 for like 11 or 12 a couple months ago. I did the BBB squats 3 days ago on Deads day. 55% which was 135x5x10 with one minutes rest and it was pretty easy. I was sore the next day, but should it still be affecting my workout 3 days later? I kind of noticed the same on my Press workout.
Is it just a matter of not being used to a bit more volume or should I drop the BBB sets down some.
2) Do you guys like using BBB deadlifts or swapping out for RDL/ good mornings. Just a general question to see what you guys think/ has worked for you.
