ive just started wendler’s 5 3 1 program. im about to go into my third week and i am a little confused about the reps. In the article How To Build Pure Strength, posted below.
it shows week three not as a set of 5, a set of 3, and a set of 1, but as 3x5, 3, and 1. also shown below.
Week 1: 3 x 5
Week 2: 3 x 3
Week 3: 3 x 5, 3, 1
Week 4: deloading
Everywhere else that i have look seems to have it as 3 sets. 5, 3, and 1. which i thought made since, considering that you are going for the most weight this day. that way you still have some in the tank for the 1+ rep. however the article does say 3x5, 3, and 1. i am just curious on which one is right. can anyone set a young guy straight?
because when i bench im assuming there will be a significant different in how my sets go if its 3 sets of five at 267, 3 at 302, and 1+ at 337. then 5 x 267 3 x 302 and 1 x 337
Thanks to everyone
