Cutting Through the Crap


For the guy that just wants to train to get stronger, not really think about programming, and not interested in the many challenges, is it advisable to just do:

3/5/1 setup
5s Progression
FSL 5 sets x 5 reps
Deload every 6 weeks
5 Forward / 3 Back

There are so many different variations in the Beyond book, I just want to keep it simple and put the work in.


Definetely advisable. From what i have read from jim he uses this setup for the majority of his power athletes cycles.
