I bought the new beyond 5/3/1 book and thought i’d give it a try. I haven’t kept a training log on Tnation for a while. So I cant wait to see the progress i will make… Here is my training maxes for the first workout
(Based on 85% of REAL MAX)
Squat- 240 lbs
Bench- 200 lbs
Deadlift- 340 lbs
Press- 140 lbs
I will also add in the Power Clean on Squat Days…
Power Clean- 170 lbs
The Training Week will look like this…
Monday- Power Clean/Squat
Tuesday- Bench Press
— I will follow the same warm up routine every workout
—For assistance work i will work on anything i think is lagging and needs work on. For right now that is the upper back/abs.
—2x a week using the prowler, sprints, or Jump Rope
—I will follow Wendlers slow and steady weight gain diet which involves at least 4 solid meals a day.
So there it is… For right now i am following a 4 day /week split, I will be using the Base of Beyond 5/3/1 Program. I will use all the options given in the book to how i will workout that day. The use of Joker sets and Down sets will be used as well as setting PR’s mostly every workout.
