Hi,
I had a few questions about the plugin for SS for upper body lifts from last newsletter.
So for workout A:
Bench x 1 @ +5% from last 5 x 3 sets on LP, then take 15% off the bar for 5 reps x 5 sets
B*:*
Press 1 @ +5% from last 5 x 3 sets, then take 15% off the bar for 4 reps x 6 sets

So lets say 80 kg for the last 5x3. Then we get 1 rep at 84, and 5x5 at 71.4. The next time workout A comes around, what weight should the single be? Adding 5% to 71.4 doesn’t seem logical. Or am I complicating things and it’s just 84+1.25/2.5?

What is the reasoning behind the singles? Not questioning, just wondering out of curiosity.

There should always be 2 reps in the tank, that means that if I feel like I couldn’t have done any more (or just one), I should repeat the weight the next time?

Why is leaving 2 in the tank better than pushing as hard as I can? As a novice you’re supposed to recover before the next workout anyway right? (Again just curiosity)
Thanks
