I am a noobie lifter(been lifting for about 1 year, but with bad diet and on a kinobody program). Recently picked up the 5/3/1 for powerlifting and the beyond 5/3/1, but i have a question about when should i increase the weight more than what the program tells me to? My TM are as following:
53kg Military press
80kg Benchpress(just dialed it back from 88.5 since that was too heavy)
So my numbers are FAR from impressing and there is big room for improvements. How do i measure when i should increase more than the program? If i am supposed to do 5/3/1+ and i do 5 reps on the last one, should i increase my TM? Or should i wait till i hit i.e 10 reps? I understand that i should go light for building strength, but too light is no point?
Thanks for all answers, sorry if this has been answered before(I have tried to find it but not been able to) and also sorry for my bad English(its not my mother language)
Edit: I am doing the Strength Challenge with the first set last in Beyond 5/3/1 program
