I used my (perhaps lacking) powers of deduction to figure that you were following 5/3/1 as most do: Squat day, bench day, deadlift, press in some form or order with the assistance template of your choosing.
Yeah, upon reading your response and my response, but sober, I realized I omitted that little piece of info.

If you have some tough classes or are getting a little beat up towards the 1s week, you can AREG it and just hit the base reps.

You might stay a little fresher switching it along the lines of Wendler's powerlifting schedule, basically making it 3/5/1, and only hit the 5s, not maxing your reps. I really don't know though. Just food for thought.
I appreciate all your input. I am gunna go forward as it is for a couple of cycles, and see where it gets me.
