First of all I would like to thanks Jim for the 531. After 9 cycle of 531, I gets stronger, my joint are healthier, and I’m more motivated compared to before.
So my question is how and when to reset? I got the book, read it few times, I understand the basic idea about reset when fail to hit requited reps or fail to maintain the right posture, however there are few things that need clarification;
- Do I reset on the same day I’m unable to hit required reps? Immediately reduce 10% of TM and start with a new TM on that particular day?
- Do I reset the same exercise on next lifting day? Let’s say I fail to hit required reps for overhead press on Monday, should I reduce 10% of TM and do overhead press again on Wednesday?
- What if I’m unable to hit required reps for deadlift on week 2, should I reduce 10% of deadlift TM, hit required reps on next lifting day with new TM? Or should I deload and restart the cycle from week 1.
- Should I continue with assistance exercise when I fail to hit the required reps for main lift? Or should I just stop the session immediately?
Currently on cycle 10 week 1 and my overhead press is stalling. Only able to complete 2/5 for the final main set even after longer resting period. Last deload is after 9th cycle, not a diet queen, and I do get enough rest.
Been doing BBB for previous 9 cycle and currently trying Simplest Strength Template because I want to try something else. Previously I also stalled at my overhead press and deadlift before I started 531.
