Good evening all. Just a quick question regarding 5/3/1 weight progression. I’m on my 4th cycle and noticed that on my two upper body lifts, bench and shoulder press, the weight is the same from one cycle to the other since I’m only increasing the training max by 5lbs. I use the CEILING function that Wendler outlined in his eBook.
Take shoulder press
Training max 95
Training max 100
This continues in the subsequent 3/3/3+ and 5/3/1+ weeks. Do you just repeat the same weight or increase by 5lbs even though it isn’t 65/70/75% of your training max?
This doesn’t happen for each 5lb increase. I’m just wondering what most people do when it does occur.
