OK, I'm on my 3rd week of my 3rd month of using the 5/3/1 protcol for the big lifts.
On everything else I'm doing just fine. When it comes to bench, I'm hitting rep PRs when it calls for higher reps, and I hang any where below 255lb. But if I go above that, it's a no go.
For instance, last month I hit 240lbs for 7 reps. A week ago I hit 250lb for 6. Then today, I hit 265lb for a fucking single. I recharged and went again, and was able to get two. Which is ridiculous, because before I started the 5/3/1 protocol, I was able to hit 275lb for 3 reps. Now I could barely hit 265lb for 2. Hell, a couple months ago I hit 255lb for 2 sets of 5, then a few weeks later, I was barely able to hit 265lb for 3 reps.
What the hell is going on?
