20$ men comme on…are you broke?

isn’t everyone?

I bought it mostly to support Jim- there’s not THAT much in the book that you can’t find between reading his Q&A/training log and the Training Three Days a Week manual.

There are some interesting tables and pages though, and I just plain love the system overall.

Got it to support Jim too considering I’ve got a lot out of his system. Wanted some clarification on what to do when progress stalls, which he gives, but then I hit 13 reps on my 5 rep squat day today, so I’m some distance away from there yet.

Was going to post on the 5/3/1 thread a few weeks back asking about using a 1rm calculator as a very crude way of measuring progress. Glad to see I was thinking on the right lines.

He doesn’t seem to mention the 3/5/1 variation though. Not sure where he is on that. I like it and I know one or two others use it.

i like it. even though i have the 3 day a week training book, i like the way he wrote the new book.

It is good. It goes into more detail and answers most questions people have about the program. He also goes into detail on how to properly do the lifts. $20 is an awesome value.

It’s nothing earth-shattering, but it is a solid program with answers to many questions about 5/3/1. It’s also good reference source. I had no problem with spending the $20.
