Hello. I have been following 5/3/1 for the past several months (needed to take time off during the pandemic until my home gym equipment got delivered in May, and I restarted 5/3/1 in July).
Let’s take my deadlift as an example. On July 24th when I restarted, I set my DL TM at 230. Since that time, I have been adding 10 lbs. each cycle and have not missed any reps. I have also been doing BBB.
Today (December 17th), my DL TM is 290 and it was my “1” week. For my 1+, I hit 11 reps at 250. I could have done at least 12 but my grip was slipping (I usually hook grip the last set, but for some reason I did not).
Does this seem like good progress? I think it’s fine, particularly since I have not missed any reps.
Also, after I did my 11 reps for 1+, I also did the following: 270 x 1, 290 x 1, 315 x 1, and 330 x 1. The 330 was a PR for me. Given that I was able to do 330 x 1, did I set my TM too low when I started? If so, should I adjust it, and by how much? Lastly, although I am making consistent progress, am I risking screwing things up by doing these heavy singles?
I can post a video of the 330 PR if that will help. Thanks in advance.
