T Nation

Just Finished Reading 5/3/1 2nd Edition


Yeah a little late to the party I know...but better late than never yes?

But I digress.

I just finished reading and I really like the layout of the north of vag & "simplest strength template" and was looking for a quick confirmation.

Would a typical workout consist of...?
1) Warm up
Foam rolling
2) 5/3/1 workout
Main lift (5/3/1 pr set where weight and reps depend on the week)
"big" assistance lift (seems like a slight variation of the main lift is used)
Accessory (lats/triceps/ab work)
3) Conditioning

Looking forward to your guys' responses and doing this program.


That’s pretty much it.

There’s an article on tnation called the Boring but Big 3 Month Challenge that taught me a lot about how to layout a template.
