My Quest For Strength


#103

All the 5/3/1 rep scheme is, is a progression. So you absolutely can use it for whatever lift you like.


#104

Awesome, thanks.


#105

I have never trained like that. Couldn’t intelligently speak to it. I would just be guessing. Gotta do what you gotta do.


#106

Thanks for your input.

I’m immensely glad this program is over. I’m drained. Going to take a deload week and test maxes.

Day 3, Week 6

Deadlift

135 x 5
185 x 3
225 x 1
250 x 1
275 x 1
295 x 1
330 x 3 x 2

Felt and looked horrible.

Press

45 x 5
75 x 3
95 x 1
115 x 1
130 x 2

Couldn’t do the other two sets.

Hopefully this program worked lol.

I’m gonna get some advice from the more experienced guys on this forum, how do you guys generally warm up for a 1RM or a top set of 2 or 3?

#111

I just do plates or quarters for sets of 1-5 until I get there. Lower reps with higher weights.


#112

Thanks. Realistically, I’m gonna try for 385, and then if things go well, for 405. So would you recommend something along the lines of:

135 x 5
185 x 3
225 x 2
250 x 1
275 x 1
315 x 1
345 x 1
385 x 1 — then 405 x 1 possibly?


#113

Can’t make any recommendations honestly. I am not a coach.


#114

Thanks anyway.


#115

Similar. I usually make jumps in plates and 25s.


#116

Thanks. I’ll update the log. Hoping for 385!
