I’m currently in my last week of 5/3/1 ( + PR set). The plan was to do a 1RM test week after the cycle followed by a deload week follwed by a new cycle (new template). Been running a triumvirate version with 5x5 @FSL for the last couple months now.
My plan after the 1RM test is NOT to use my new 1RM to calculate a new TM, just to test new maxes.
My question, whats better. Doing FIRST a deload week and then a 1RM test week or as intendent the oppostie? I’cant find an article in the books. Because of momentum i’m afraid to not hit PR maxes after the deload.
