I finished the 27 week BBB and man what a ride really liked it a lot the 5x1 weeks really made me do some mental checking, had issues with my bench asked Jim for his thoughts about an ideal I had and he helped my get back on course and stay NOV thanks a lot Jim. TM's were up and down I didn't do the add 5,10 lb I let my 5-3-1 week determine what the TM was gonna be and just kept going for rep maxes.
I know you shouldn't do FSL and jokers but I always did FSL's on press, bench,squat with pauses, because I am a raw lifter with wraps and once in a while do a couple sets of jokers. If you go down this journey you will also want to be very selective about your supplemental / accessory work. THANK YOU JIM for the great programs, and the only other thing I can say is do it as written the program works!!!!
