Just one more thing I spotted. The three lifts at 90% and above are typically done as you work not after. So for example if you had a max of 100kg on a lift (for example) You might do:

20kg x 3
40kg x 3
60kg x 3
70kg x 1
80kg x 1
90kg x 1 - Hit 90%
95kg x 1 - One more before a new max
102.5kg x 1 - Smash a new max

Try and aim for around 8-10 sets total on that day with the final 3 being at 90 or above. You get the idea.
ahhhh, that makes sense Fazc. thanks!

What are your thoughts on a back-off set after smashing a new max? Maybe dropping the weight by 10-20% and busting out some reps...
