Yep. That's how 5/3/1 is laid out. 3 work sets with the last one being for as many reps as possible. Then I do a 5x10 since i'm doing the BBB style 5/3/1.

Dub you are taking that last set to failure on every workset 3-4 days a week, no wonder you are struggling mate.Combine that with the fact that lifts and load are not rotated and your gonna get stuck.

What are your goals, I am gonna have a guess at strength first then size as a nice by product of the strength gained?

Let me know if you want to get a hand setting something up, you should be squatting alot more by now mate, get a vid up and lets fix that!!

HIThopper's Sig:There are no shortcuts. The fact that a shortcut is important to you means that you are a pussy. Let me be clear here: if you'd rather take steroids than do your squats heavy and drink enough milk, then you are a Fucking Pussy. I have no time or patience for Fucking Pussies.

Well as per the 5/3/1 ... you're supposed to "leave one in the tank" on the all out set... and usually that works out fine. Up until now I've been getting the reps I need without going to failure. The last couple of weeks has been a different story though.

Right now I am trying to gain some size but still strength is still probably priority over that. I have been putting on some weight the program is working in that sense and I'm eating enough.

I know I should be squatting more by now. Part of the problem is I squat A2G ... seriously I've seen maybe a handful of ppl that squat as low as I do. However, I still believe that my squat could be better. I should be squatting at least 3 plates by now.

I think I have to give the 5/3/1 a little more time. I think one of my problems is that i made some large increases between 5/3/1 cycles because I was gaining strength so fast after the injury but my body wasn't ready to do it yet.

Anyway, I'll still try to remember to get vids of my squat so you can see that it is LOW as F.

I am officailly mystified. Some of the worst days I've had in a while followed by the best MP press I've had in a long time. My energy levels were far better today and I really don't know why. I started taking vitamin C but only a few days ago.

Oh well, I'll take the good days when I get them.

I was going to get a vid today but I went at lunch instead of the usual after work and I forgot my camera. Wah. It was a zoo in there anyways so not ideal for taking video.

My back is all kinds of jacked up after that workout. I need this deload.
