I have reset my maxes once on both my deadlift and squat. At this time I'm not wanting to reset maxes (and stay with the same routine) because I need a break from chasing numbers on a spreedsheet and pushing max effort weight 4 times a week. These may be lame excuses in the eyes of some, but it is where I am at. I think I need the break mentally just as much or more than I need it physically. I've been doing this for 9 months, to me it is a long time.
In the near future I am willing to reset maxes and restart 5/3/1, I am not completely eliminating it from my tool box.
Thanks for the tips. I intend to buy a foam roller soon. I will also add the planks in to my workouts. I am unfamiliar with band traction and lax ball, so I will have to look those up.
