    I figured that, but there are three different 5/3/1 books: one for football, one for the lay gym goer, and one specifically for PL'ing.

  4. lol 4th not 44th week

  5. I know what you meant and the answer is still no. 5/3/1 is also something that you do for at least 6 months.

    5/3/1 is one of the more established training systems and has an almost cult-like status.

    I believe it was 315/245/425 at the beginning and it's 425/315/495 now with only a belt and wrist wraps.

  12. let me make sure im doing this right your supposed to take 90% of your 1rm and base your percentages off that.So if 5/3/ call for a set with 80% that would be 80%ok of 90% your 1rm ?

    For the first week, you take 85% of 90% of your current 1RM and do it for max reps. The key word is current 1RM; it's not what you did 2 months ago.

  14. Bench 75%x5 (220)
    80%x5 (235)
    85%x5 (245)
    265x1
    275x1
    Dumbell bench 5x10 (pause at bottom and explode)
    tricep pushdowns 5x20
    face pulls 5x20

    These percentages were based off 90% of 320 that beingg 290!

  15. 2 things:
    1. Was 5 the maximum amount of reps you could do with 245?
    2. You never answered which 5/3/1 ebook you bought.

    Then do that many reps for that set. I haven't read the PL specific version, so I'm not sure what weeks he recommends the heavy singles.
