Ok....so I have am nearing the end of the 3rd week (1st Cycle) of Wendler's 5/3/1 Powerlifting Progression Training. When I set up my % for each set, I used Jefit's calcualtion to come up with my 1rm based on reps and weight that I had done previously. On Tuesday, I did my 95% (of 345#) Deadlift which is 325#. The goal was 1+ (to fail).....and I managed to pull 325# for 3 reps....which may mean that my 1rm is higher than when I first started....

I have never attempted 1 Rep Maxes simply due to training solo.

When should I attempt to go for 1RMs? I don't wanna be traing with weight that is under what I should be training at.....
