I'm planning on doing your 16-week squatting cycle with 5's and pause squats. It's in your book, which I had before it was destroyed in a fire. I saw it again in PT's Beyond Body Building.
In PT's book, it says that you're supposed to take your max or a conservative projected max, drop 160 pounds (10 pounds a week) and start with that. The pause squats are supposed to be your working sets minus 50 pounds. The problem is that I only squat 315, which puts me at 105-pound pause squats. The work sets for conventional squats are also insanely light until almost halfway through the cycle. Should I raise the weights? I've never done a cycle longer than about 8 weeks, so I'm not sure how to go about it.
