I recently participated in my second meet using Mike Tushcerer's "Generalized Intermediate Program" as my meet prep, to great success.
After my first meet, I did the 5/3/1 Boring but Big 3 Month Challenge, to varying degrees of success.
This time around, I decided to try my own programming for a bit, since my next slated meet won't be til April most likely.
It is 5/3/1 inspired (did vanilla 5/3/1 triumvirate for two years, and peaked for my first meet with 5/3/1 for Powerlifters) with some rpe flavor thrown in on main work instead of %s.
My goals are to primarily gain a bit of lean mass, improve strength, let my body rest from pure strength work, and work some lifts that I enjoy but haven't done in a while.
