I just read this:
I love Luoma’s articles, but this one had a couple of things that I just couldn’t agree on. Look — I’ve used a bunch of lifting schemes through the years, with 5/3/1 being a prominent member of that group. I am 42, heading to 43 in a couple of months and figure that my body, not my age, will tell me when it’s time to quit lifting in the sub-5 rep range.
I’m in month 3 of the 3-month challenge and don’t believe my next cycle will be something negating 5/3/1 simply because of my age.
Thoughts? Go ahead and kick me square in the nuts if you feel I deserve it. They’re steel on account of my age, so kick strategically.
