Anyone read Wendler's new 5/3/1 book geared towards powerlifting? If so, how was it?
There was a thread about a month back about it, my thoughts were pretty much the norm here: If you are, or want to do 5/3/1, just get it. If you are new to powerlifting (life myself) definitely get it.
I don't even do 5/3/1 and I'm happy I got both the original the one for powerlifting. Good stuff in there.
Just buy the damn book.
I did read it and it's very good. Well worth the money.
Got it last night. Very good read. The beginning is the same, but there is a ton of new material. thanks for the input everyone.
Is 5/3/1 for Powerlifting for raw lifters? I need to know before I decide to buy it. The table of contents mentions gear.

haven't read it myself but i believe i read on elitefts that wendler mentioned it was for raw and equipped
It contains basic equipment info with training cycles for both raw and equipped lifting as well as some tips for raw and equipped meets.
Wait.... can I do a couple DE days, as well as some reverse grip curls, and do 3 max lifts on my 5/3/1 day for my 5/3/1 program?
Thanks for the replies.
