worth it? Yes.

Got it. Damn talk about the long wait. From what I see so far, Wendler didn't include any info regarding steroids. Which was originally proposed.


#3

will be buying tomorrow


#4

Does it really vary that much from the original 5/3/1?

I assume it still follows the whole 5/3/1 technique overall.


#5

Yes And No.

If you are an aspiring powerlifter then hell yeah, if you are a serious lifter always and are stalling or are finding out you need to tweak the template on 5/3/1 then yes. If your thinking this is the newest greatest thing since sliced bread then you would be disappointed if you already own 5/3/1.

I am starting to think of it as 5/3/1/part/2 The Next Step.

The book makes real good points and has a great philosphy behind it in regarding lifting and making continous gains in general.

Has good reads on training for the Raw and for the Geared lifter.


#6

I think the section on meet prep training is invaluable for lifters that don't have handlers or even anyone else they compete with. Totally worth it.


#7

I have it and will read it tonight. Review to follow.
