60th Birthday Challenge


#1

Love 5-3-1. It has reinvigorated my lifting the past several years. While not related to the 5-3-1 program directly, I got a feeling that the group on this forum occasionally likes to challenge themselves (whether it is smart or not!) Got my 60th birthday coming up and trying to think of a fun yet challenging workout to do on that birthday morning. What about 60 reps @ 60% of max on Bench, Squat and Deadlift. After running the numbers, my first impression that it would be work but maybe not all that challenging? Thoughts? Suggestions?


#2

Do all three in 60 minutes…


#3

Great suggestion! I had not thought about how long it would take. 60 minutes would probably force a pretty good pace. Thanks!

That’s a good challenge.
Good luck, can’t wait until you turn 100
