Hey Jim and everyone,
I am about to begin the 5/3/1 program but I wanted to get others input as to conditioning. I would like to use some of the conditioning suggested in the 5/3/1 program but as a rower my training calls for ergometer training 6 days a week allowing for Wednesdays to be a cross training day or ergometer training day. The training is a mix between 30-60min steady state and also short AT work. I am not worried about my size at all but I know the constant cardio will require me to eat plenty (which I do) in order to maintain my size but I'm just a little concerned as to what effect all the ergometer training will have on the 5/3/1 program since erging puts tension on ones back at times and of course the movements performed in 5/3/1 such as dead lifts and squats will make your back a little tense.
Just want some input!
