I havent been too familiar with 5/3/1 program so I decided to buy the book and it made me come up with a probably stupid question. How are some of yall making such awesome advancements in your lifts in one to 2 cycles when it shows to only make 5 to 10lb increments?[/quote]
Because they are counting calculated maxes. If you’re switching from a low-rep program to 5/3/1, you may suck at reps for the first cycle. The rep maxes will then underestimate your true one-rep max. As you start to get better at reps, your calculated max will go up and may get closer to your true max and/or overestimate it. You didn’t really get that much stronger, you just got better at reps.
