I started 531 today w my mate and got 8 reps on the 5+ set of the first workout, bench week one.
8 reps is too low right? It was a f**kin grind too. If it’s too low, how should I set my TM maxes?
I used the correct 90% of my true max which I got from a calculated max of a balls out practically failure set I did to test them a few weeks ago. If I were to lower my weights to start out I would be setting my TM lower than the 90% that is recommended. I wouldn’t want to lose size or muscle as I worked my way back up to what I was at before.
Any help would be great, and no I have not read the book but i am planning on it.
