Why are you still doing 5/3/1 anyway? IIRC your numbers really aren't that high and you would benefit much more from 5x5.
I thought that the point of deloading was to give your body time to recover. My concern was that doing lifts at 50% per 5/3/1 was just acclimating my body to lower weights as opposed to letting it rest.
Can you point me in the right direction of information on a good 5 x 5 program? Is it as simple as doing 5 reps of 5 and increasing weight each time?
Edit: I guess Stronglifts 5x5 is the right place to look, thanks search buttonEdited by Axelman 17 - 12/22/11 at 10:42am
