I’ve been at the 5/3/1 program for a while now with great progress, however because of some knee and low back issues I have had to stop and start a couple times with the squat and deadlift parts of the program. I have made awesome progress with the bench portion taking my 1RM from 320 to 375 in a little over 6 months.
I finally decided to keep track on here along with others following the same program to compare and hopefully gain more knowledge on what works best. I have made some adjustment to the program to fit my needs but the basics are pretty much here, except for any overhead pressing which I don’t do because of previous shoulder issues. I also like to use Rest/Pause for a some of my accessory work which has helped out quite a bit rather than the traditional 5 x 10.
