Note: To warm-up for the 5/3/1 work sets Jim Wendler recommends: 5 reps at 40%, 5 reps at 50%, 3 reps at 60%, and then begin the work sets. If you are into Excel, here is a helpful spreadsheet to calculate percentages for the cycle. And finally, in case you didn't read it last week, here is again the article that explains 5/3/1.
