Ah I c what you did now. I didn't read the part where you added the last 3 sets the last time I looked at it.

How long have you been running this 5/3/1? It sounds like this is your first cycle... If so, you either way over estimated your 1RM or you didn't multiply it by 90% first (which then becomes your "1RM" that your values are based off of) or both.

There is no way you should be failing on the first or second cycle... at least that is how I see the intent of this program.

you are correct iron worker, this was only my fourth week( i skipped the deload and went back to week one) i see in your post that you are supposed to multiply your 1rm by 90% and that is were the values are based. i knew nothing of this so i will recalculate. i was adding extra sets at the end because i felt 3 sets was not enough.wont do it again, i will go by the plan. thank you.

Don't add extra sets because you don't think it's enough. On your final set you should be going for an "all out" set. This set should burn you out pretty good.

Also, the 5/3/1 isn't designed for super fast progress. It's designed to continue making small incremental progress each workout.

In any case, good luck with your bench competition.
