I really don't understand this beginner syndrome. There are thousands of question, articles and also testimonials on it. Before anyone gets upset I'm not having a go at the OP but in general.
What is it that beginners can't do that makes the original 5/3/1 a recipe for nuclear holocaust? As if the program is so advanced and complicated that it's been seen less than big foot.
Its the big moves, it's a simple progression, you start light and move up... how does changing a few reps really make any difference in the long run? I started with Boring but Big and it was the perfect example. You do the main move, then you hammer in form with the 5x10 at a low weight. I really struggle sometimes to think that we have a nation of beginners all slamming out 5x5 on the big three, three times a week, I have seen it get ugly with newbies in the gym. Take one lift a day, and become really good at it, like stupid good at it....
I know I bang on about the original 5/3/1 book like war stories, but it was simple and effective, much like the title suggests and at times you know what? That's all you had, there wasn't a thousand and one templates or forums speaking about it and bastardising them.
Search google with "Beginner 531" and you'll get tons of articles and questions.
