I'm going to start 5/3/1 tonight. I tested my 1RM the last couple days:
Overhead Press: 135x1
Bench Press: 225x1
Now I am worried that these true 1RM's are going to cause me to fail on the first cycle because it has me doing 175x5+ on bench press. I was only able to rep 165x6 and don't know if I can do this without failure. What would you guys suggest doing to make sure I don't start off down a failing path?
I'm not too worried about the other lifts because they still seem mostly reasonable, although they are a bit heavier than I'm used to do reps with.
I've been out of lifting for a few years and have been back into it for around 6-7 weeks. But now I think it's time to go into a true plan that will give me some progress.
