I’m sorry I don’t want to offend you but I can never understand these “I can’t buy the book” kind of problems. You honestly don’t have 25 bucks to spare ONCE?
How much are you gym fees? Or if you train in a college kind of gym, how much are your college fees? Or if you train at home, how much did your equipment cost? You get the point I’m trying to make?
If you’re really serious about your training, you shouldn’t base your entire training plan on something you saw in an article on the internet.
And if you’re not that serious about your training (nothing wrong with that by the way!), you probably won’t find much good in 5/3/1 or any of Jim’s work, because he’s a no-nonsense guy with a no-nonsense training philosophy and advice. His plans are for the committed, if you just want to do it for some weeks and then switch they won’t really work (no plan will by the way).
Sorry to hijack your thread, this is nothing about you personally, I just don’t seem to get these kind of things.
