the 90% is in regards to their entire cycle’s use of TM, FSLS is still always 60%/70%/75%, but those numbers all pull from 90% of TM. And yes, when I started 5/3/1 again I purposely used very low TMs, as well as still artificially keep DL TM down.
Lot to unpack as to why but simplified version is easier. The weight I can lift is counterproductive to the weight I should lift for my goals. You and I seem too see eye to eye on the belief of natural limits, my personal hypothesis is that you dont just stop growing muscle, you body instead just has internal ways to govern like an engine and top speed. For me, it is soft tissue. Whenever my LBM gets me closer to a 25 FFMI, or my lifting numbers get somewhere in the 300/400/500 range something on my body breaks down.
Also just a general update, since I ended up not lifting or doing literally any physical activity for 6 days, I just treated it as my deload, skipped the middle week DL session and hit bench yesterday. Keeping assistance and conditioning off the table this week since I am still sick and probably shouldnt be lifting in the first place.
