    Missed a week on 5/3/1 where to restart?

    I was really sick for almost a week now but I want to try and go to the gym soon. I was on the heaviest week of 5/3/1 (the 5/3/1).

    Should I just restart at the month?

    Just jump in where you left off. The program is meant to be flexible for this very reason.. If you feel off just do the reps prescribed and not max the reps on the last set.
    Best raw meet lifts
    Squat:765 with wraps. / 700 raw with out wraps
    Bench: 525
    Deadlift: 755
    Total: Raw with wraps: 2000. with out wraps: 1925

    Best lifts Equipped
    1050, 840, 715. Total: 2605

    If you missed the very first week then why would you skip to the second? You havent even started the program.
    You give what you give, what you don't give is lost forever, this day will never come again.

    What are you talking about?

    "was on the heaviest week of 5/3/1 (the 5/3/1)."

    The 5/3/1 rep set is the third week of the program........
