I am 22 years old, 5 feet 8 inches tall, and weigh 220 pounds.
I am trying out 5/3/1 because I like the program’s simplicity, I am tired of thinking about lifting, and my schedule only allows me 3 days per week to train.
My current Raw 1 rep maximum lifts (pounds) are:
BB Overhead Press- 215
Conventional Deadlift- 635
BB Bench Press- 320
Back Squat- 520
My Starting 1 rep maximum lifts for the Program following the 90% guideline are:
BB Overhead Press- 195
Conventional Deadlift- 570
BB Bench Press- 290
Back Squat- 470
My 1 rep maximum lift Goals are:
BB Overhead Press- 315
Conventional Deadlift- 700
BB Bench Press- 405
Back Squat- 600
In the interest of simplicity, for this first 4 week training period, I am going to be following the Boring But Big version of the Program as detailed in the e-book.
