I like the Wendler 531 program for the bench, OHP, and squat, but I am tired of the high rep deadlifts. I've checked out the Rhodes variation and I'm skeptical about it. It calls for 3 heavy singles in week 1, none in week 2, and 2 in week 3. I think the singles are supposed to be your training max for that month. I usually am not at my strongest immediately after the deload week and I don't think that the 3 heavy singles would be right for me so early in the routine. I am thinking of this: Week 1: 5x65%, 5x75%, 5x85%, 1-2 singles at training max Week 2: 3x70%, 3x80%, 3x90%, 2-3 singles at training max Week 3: 5x85%, 3x90%, 1x95%, 4-5 singles at training max Week 4: Deload Thoughts?
