Short sidenote: I’ve been running the original 5/3/1 for 2 years now. During those 2 years I’ve either hit rep PR’s or a 1RM PR, and never hit a plateau.
I’ve just bought 5/3/1 Forever and decided to go with 2 Leaders and 1 Anchor. Still not sure wich one, probably 5’s PRO and FSL, and something with PR stets for the Anchor.
I decided to do a 1RM Test Week before the new program.
Squat went from 192,5 to 200kg
Bench went from 140 to 145kg
Still gotta test Press, probably from 80 to 85kg
Now… the deadlift went from 215kg to 200kg. That’s
15kg less. I probably had a off day but still. Two weeks prior to this test week I had an estimated 1RM of 237. One week later it was 218.
My question is: what number do I use to calculate my new TM for coming cycles? 200? 218? 237? And why?
