Ok so first day of 5/3/1 for powerlifting...
My legs and lower back were stiff from handling lifters all day on Saturday at a local powerlifting meet. I hit all of my required reps and one extra but had I been fresh I think I would've been good for at least 2-3 more and still have left some in tank.
345 x3 + 1 extra rep = a Projected Max of about 380 lbs
1 warm up set
3 sets til failure
Single Leg Press
3 sets of 10 here
3 sets of 12
Trying to ease into this... My last squat set I absolutely could have gotten at least two more reps but they would have been ugly and would have left me empty. Wendler specifically says in the book to push it but always leave 1-2 reps in the tank. Given my stiffness from the weekend, I decided to call it at 4 reps and leave more for next week. I have my projected max set so my next goal will to be crush that with my next weeks reps.
I will not be lifting tomorrow so I can go and vote. Bench day has been rescheduled for Wednesday.
