Greetings. I recently began my first seven week cycle (six weeks work and one deload week) of Beyond 5/3/1. This was after a little over a year on a linear progression program (the Greyskull Linear Progression). I switched into Beyond 5/3/1 because I moved from a unit that was mostly senior personnel who could do PT on their own to a unit that mandates all personnel to do PT as a unit (I’m currently active duty military). The training maxes and PR sets ensure that I can still get some good work in at the gym and the Joker Sets and First Set Last REALLY mean I can take advantage of days I feel 100% bulletproof.
As I’ve done some reading on the latest evolution of the Wendler 5/3/1 program I came across the 5’s PRO and references to the 3’s PRO version (though it wasn’t in the book). I presume 3’s PRO works along the same lines as 5’s PRO except reps are done for sets of 3 versus sets of 5, but I just wanted to make sure I wasn’t making an assumption.
BLUF: In any case I intend to stay on the Beyond 5/3/1 version I’m on (as outlined in the book) for a long while, but I’m curious as to what the 3’s PRO programming is.
