I am just about to start training again after a couple of years on lifting ‘sabbatical’ and planning to run 531. Used the original with success (BBB@50% and Triumvirate) years ago and loved going after rep records. My comeback plan was to do 2nd edition 531 and 50%BBB and some aerobic base stuff- moving (swim, jog, cycle,) at 140-150bpm for half an hour a couple of times a week.
Then I opened Pandora’s box brought Beyond to see how Wendler had developed his master piece. Whilst it all makes sense it appears a bit more complex to set up and allot less simple to plug my maxes into an excel and have next 5 months or training? Will my progress by substantially hindered if I simply stick to my plan in comparison to what I might expect if I try and get my head round the newer improvements- Pro 5’s (advised for beginners), FSL etc?
Any advice would be appreciated
