Testing 1RM in Leviathan Template



Hello Jim. Brandon here.

Currently I am doing the Leviathan template from 5/3/1 forever. I am a powerlifter. I am thinking is it possible for one to attempt new 1RM with respect to the template while still adhere to the principles of 5/3/1?

Hope to get inputs from you. Thanks.



I dont think so. Maybe in the anchor. - Don’t test, train and build strength instead.


Yeah. Maybe some jokers in anchor if you really want to. Dont go to a 1RM during training though, leave that to the meet.
