I'm going to start Wendler 5/3/1. Calculated my macros on IIFYM. I calculated my 1RM 15 days ago to start this program my bodyweight at that time was 71KG. I went to pilgrimage wasn't counting calories that much but when i came back to gym again i lost 3 kg and was struggling with weights according to my previous 1RM setup. Should i calculate my 1RM again or wait for a week to adjust?

Quick thought - I would consider skipping the OHP day altogether and do a dynamic set of one of the other compound lifts. There is a thread on here with a link to a T Nation article that indicates OHP is not the best exercise.

For your starting weight did you base everything off 90% of your 1rm?

Yes i base 90% off 1rm. I read Wendler doesn't advocate dynamic effort on this setup correct me if i'm wrong. Can i do more like this if i want to include dynamic effort day

Monday - Dynamic effort (DE) bench press.
Tuesday - Wendler's squat day. Dynamic effort (DE) deadlifts.
Thursday - Wendler's bench press day.
Friday - Wendler's deadlift day. Dynamic effort (DE) squat

Thats what my setup looks like.

EDIT: 15 days ago i started Wendler according to my current 1rm i was pretty fine but when i took 2 weeks off i lost weight but it also effected my workout and was struggling with weights. Should i recalculate my 1rm again?

Short answer is that I would pick one exercise and do a dynamic day with that on your 4th workout of the week.

I don't think you need to recalculate your 1rm unless you have trouble hitting your numbers for the max effort set.

More thoughts tomorrow. That's what u have for now.
