Fairly new to lifting,somewhere in the 8-9 month range, 17 years old. I’ve been following the 5/3/1 program for a couple cycles and its been great. Obviously, after getting to the point where I can lift a respectable amount, I plan to compete in raw powerlifting meets.
Would it be best I follow the “off season” template in the 5/3/1 for powerlifting book until I find a meet to compete in, or should I continue to move along with the regular 5/3/1 + BBB for now? I realize that both programs follow the same principles and the difference between each is only few variables so this question might even be irrelevant.
