5/3/1, Switching Order of Core Lifts?


I am planning on starting the 5/3/1 program and was wondering if it is alright to switch when you do your core lifts? The program starts with Military and I always like to start my week with bench. Does the order of what days you do the core lifts matter? I couldn't find anything in the book (unless I missed it).


so bench/dead/ohp/squat? no prob


yep, that is what I plan on doing...thanks


No problem at all.

I do Squat/Bench/Dead/Military, for what it's worth. I've been doing it that way for about 4 cycles now, it's working great for me.
