So about to enter the 3rd month of Jim’s 5/3/1 program and had a couple of questions going into it.
While I can match the numbers of reps required for each weeks increase on certain exercises, I struggle to meet the requirements on others. How should I move forward with this? Should I repeat the same weights until comfortable, or do as much as I can on increased weights? (For example, I am struggling to hit 3 x 3/70, 80, 90. on the standing should press)
With the assistance exercises, should the last rep be to failure, or just a comfortable rep. (Sometimes find the assistance a little too easyâ?¦)
