I just started reading about the 5 steps forward/3 steps back cycling for 5/3/1. I need some help. I weigh 170lbs. I started with a 245 bench press with a pause and 185 military press. I’m currently in cycle 9. I started April 7th and now it’s November 29th. I"m doing 5x5 for squats and deadlifts twice a week since I’m recovering from a torn ACL.
My current TM’s are 250 for the BP and 190 for the MP.
My numbers for max rep set for the bench press are 5 for 5s week, 4 for 3s week, and 3 for the 5/3/1 week.
My numbers for the military press are now 4 for 5s week, 2 for 3s week and hopefully I’ll get 1 for the 5/3/1 for this cycle.
What should I do now with the 5/3 approach?
