60th Birthday Challenge

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?

Do all three in 60 minutes…

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
