Re: got 235 lb BS for 5 other day but today couldn't PR??

Brendan hit a lot of it on the head.

Rest, recovery, and planning the right max setup.

Make Sure you are rested and recovered for a good max day.

Learn to get in good reps but not fatiguing yourself. With a possible 255 max I wouldn't do 5 reps of 175 (maybe 3 or 2). Also remember a 20lb jump at that weight may seem like a lot.


45x8
95x5
135x3
175x1
205x1
225x1
235 or 245x1
255x1

Rest 3-5 mins between each attempt. Might seem overkill but it's all realitive.

I max squatted Monday and did
135x8
255x5 (had put my 45lbs vs 55lb plates on first)
315x3
345x1
365x1
385x1

Took 25 mins to work through it.

Good luck, give it some rest and go at it again
