Gonna log my 5/3/1 training here to keep myself something to look back at.
I have been doing 5/3/1 for a while and loving it. The philosophy of just eat, lift, and sprint are so simple and effective. I no longer worry about every minute detail regarding my lifting and nutrition (eating clean and healthy food 90% of the time) so I don’t look like I have OCD lol
My goal is 600 deadlift, 500 squat, and 400 bench (hence the 6/5/4!). Now, I’m nowhere close to it. But I’m confident I’ll be a lot closer a few years down the road doing this than anything else. It may take me 5 or 10 or however many but I’m gunning for it.
Today is the first day of my new cycle.
1x5 @ 95
1x5 @ 110
1x8 @ 125

1x8 @ +70
Standing Db Shoulder (Neutral)
1x10 @ 45 <-- too heavy
4x10 @ 35
V-Bar Lat Pulldown
3x10 @ 140
1x20 @ 100
Forgot my strap so went as heavy as grip could permit only
Tomorrow is an off day but I plan to do some hill sprints…and possibly a light fasted jog in the morning for 15-20 min depending upon my meal of choice later tonight.
