Quick background on me. I started lifting again three years ago. I started with some of Coach Thib's training methods found on T-Nation, then I read 5/3/1 and used Jim's method for about 6-months. I made my best gains while using 5/3/1 but ran into a plateau I couldn't get past. Between that and the fact I love to learn more about training I bought some books on Westside and the Cube Method. Too make a long story short, I read the Beyond 5/3/1 book and now my training has come full circle. I just finished my 3rd cycle and decided to create a training log to get some feedback.
I've been using the 5/3/1 Strength Phase in-conjunction with Last Set First and Joker Sets. This feels like the most complete training method I've ever used. I usually approach a training session with a set plan but I often find myself adjusting based on how I feel.
Olympic Squat: I have hip flexor issues no matter how much I stretch or roll so I just switched to the Olympic squat to see if that helps.
Start: 320lbs 1RM
I wanted to get this log started even though I'm taking a deload this week.
