Good morning all,
I’ve read and read on Jim’s 5/3/1 Program and have decided to try and begin my journey utilizing it. I do have some basic questions despite re-reading and searching several forums:
I plan on using Boring but Big for my initial template, I’ve figured all my maxes, downloaded a decent app to help track progress, and I’ve been on it for two weeks. Currently my program looks like this:
Lat Pulldown 3-5x10
Shoulder Press 5x10
Weighted Situps 5x10
Bench Press 5x10
The app is setup that this cycle ends after week 3. What would you recommend to continue: run this template again but with new Training Maxes so the weight continues to increase? I started the program very light due to some nagging injury rehab. The sets are challenging but I’ve been able to complete all of them. I plan on adding more assistance work as I progress into the program further, but right now I’m happy with the progress. After a second cycle should I be looking to switch from an anchor to a leader template?
