I did 5/3/1 about 3 years ago with great results…lost 20lbs while maintaining strength levels, was able to sprint, run hills, and do lots of body weight work. Switched things up to peak for meets…hit some PRs, program hopped for a while till it all just got boring as hell.
I picked up a copy of Mr Wendler’s latest book and it has reminded me of what’s most important to me. Loving the training. So here I go starting things off with the boring but big 13 week challenge. I’m starting ridiculously light and following the program as written.
Raw starting strength 450/320/560
M Press: top set 170x10
Bench: 5x10 165
Lat pull downs 5x10 110
Abs 70 reps
