    On an upper body day (Bench or Overhead Press) at the end of your workout.
    Current 1RM's - Bench 264lbs (Target 308lbs)/Squat 396lbs (Target 352lbs)/
    Deadlift 429lbs (Target 440lbs)
    BIG 3 TOTAL at 220lbs (28% BF) = 1089lbs

    That sounds like "boring but big" and if it is, then you don't have to do that. Do your 5/3/1 bench workout and then follow it up with whatever you want.
