Starting Monday! I hadn't maxed in while and I haven't focused on any of the major lifts (Bench, DL, Squat) in a while. I last benched heavy over a year ago. It's been about 4 years since I did heavy DL, and squat...well, lets just say it's been a looooong time. I have been training, just not focusing on strength training. More dumbbell and general fitness work. I have a solid foundation in strength training though, which is why I chose 5/3/1 over HCT-12.
My 1RM were decent...BP = 325; DL = 435; Squat = 335.
My goals are to Bench and Squat over 400 and DL over 500. I used to bench about 420 and DL right at 495, so I know it's doable.
I've got a starting point and got my order of Results (2 months supply) today. Ready to hit Wendler's program head on!
thanks for all the help fellas. I'll keep you posted.

Awesome! Welcome to the 5-3-1 club. If you ever need any help with it, LMK. I've ran it for about a year now
That's pretty strict OH press. I tried not to use too much leg getting started. Although I cheated a bit on 215 (more of a push press) and still missed it. Oh well.
