Beyond 5/3/1 Templates, When to Increase Max?


#1

In the Beyond 5/3/1 program, are the training maxes always increased after 3 weeks (as they are when each lift is done once/week) or are they increased more/less frequently depending on how many times per week each lift is done?

Cheers


#2

More frequently never (I remember someone asked this before). Less frequently if you train 3days/week, one lift/day for example.

In general, every 3 weeks. This is clearly written in the Beyond book. If you are using the Beyond program, you should be at the point in your training life where you should knowingly get a feel for this kind of thing. This is not beginner programming. And the TM is a tool, not something you measure your strength with.

Understand the principles of training and the program - I can’t say this enough.
